The Prince of Wales and Duchess of York arrived at the Cotswold farm park to hear about how they are preparing to reopen the park to public visitors. Charles joined Adam Henson, director of Cotswold Farm Park, for a tour of the site. The royals were followed by a PA photographer, but one hilarious picture quickly proved a firm favourite with fans.
The picture saw Charles on the tour in the background, while a curious goat dominated the foreground, peering over the fence.
One royal fan uploaded the image to Twitter, writing: “Thank you to the photographer. This made me laugh this morning.”
The image sparked a flood of comments, with one user tweeting: “I absolutely love this picture.”
“So sweeeeeeet! I love that goat!” added another.
“Lol, I love that picture,” added a third amused fan.
On the visit, the Prince of Wales saw some of their 20 resident rare breeds.
This includes the Gloucestershire Old Spot pigs and Victoria the Suffolk Punch horse, of which there are only 81 breeding mares left.
His Royal Highness is Patron of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust, a charity working to save and promote UK native breeds of livestock.
The post featured images of Charles speaking to workers and touching the produce.
The caption read: “Shipton Mill has been producing speciality flours for centuries, including Rye, Spelt, Gluten Free flours, Einkorn and Emmer.
“The mill was involved in the first Duchy Originals products, founded by HRH, in the early 1990s. To this day, it continues to produce the flour for the Duchy Originals biscuit range.”
Prince Charles has been spending lockdown at his Scottish residence in Birkhall.
However, he and Camilla have continued to enjoy a close family relationship with their grandchildren, partaking in regular video chats.
The Cambridge children are even said to have an adorable nickname for their grandfather which echoes the Queen’s name for her own grandad.
Royal author Robert Hardman, revealed the Cambridge children call Charles Grandpa Wales.
This is no doubt down to his title of HRH the Prince of Wales.
This touching nickname is reminiscent of what Queen Elizabeth II called her grandfather King George V – Grandpa England.
Writing in the Daily Mail, Mr Hardman said: “He [Charles] increasingly consults the Duke of Cambridge in all major family decisions; about his hopes that, while his sons have created new charity networks, one of his grandchildren — maybe George — will one day take on the stewardship of his own.”
Prince Charles has previously spoken about being a grandfather, saying: “It’s a different part of your life.
“The great thing is to encourage them. Show them things to take their interest. My grandmother did that, she was wonderful.”
