The Naz Legacy Foundation held a Youth panel this week. Included in the video was a message from Prince Charles wishing the Muslim community well for the end of Ramadan.

The message was shared for a virtual celebration for the end of Ramadan, which encouraged those who participate in the celebration to stay at home for Ramadam, which is to take place on Wednesday, May 12, 2021.

Prince Charles wished the Eid Mubarak community well and referenced his own father Prince Philip's death as he noted he and others would have an empty seat at the dinner table this year, as he said:

He also remarked that friends would not be able to enjoy a celebratory hug after their Eid prayers. The royal expressed his sadness for the disheartening situation and those who had lost a loved one over the last year.

Prince Charles and the rest of the royal family are still mourning the loss of Prince Philip, who passed away on April 9, 2021, at the age of 99. However, they are starting to return to normal life.

Instead of wearing her usually royal regalia and crown, the Queen opted for a light purple day dress.

Last week, Charles made his first public appearance when he visited the Welsh Guard at their barracks in Windsor. He shared his pride for the Welsh Guard, who had formed the complement at Prince Philip's funeral.

The royal family had been moved by the Welsh Guard's participation at the somber event. Charles credited the servicemen for their wonderful contribution to the event and shared:

"People from other countries rang me up to say that they had never seen anything quite so marvelous, so beautifully done and with such dignity and style."

The heir to the throne has been busy this week as he accompanied his mother, Queen Elizbeth II, to the opening of the parliament on Tuesday, May 11, 2021. His wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwell, accompanied the Queen too.

Instead of wearing her usually royal regalia and crown, the Queen opted for a light purple day dress and matching hat. The Imperial State Crown, which signifies the regalia of the Head of State, was placed on a table next to her.

A chair is usually set up next to the throne for the monarch's consort. Prince Philip used to attend with the Queen up until he retired from public life in 2017. This was the Queen's 67th time opening the British Parliament.

Prince Charles has attended the ceremony with his mother in the past. However, this time, there were two chairs place to the Queen's left for Charles and Camilla, which signified the royal family's decision to be alongside the Queen at key moments moving forward.
