Royal fans were delighted to see King Charles and his eldest son, Prince William, share a touching moment together to honor the late Queen Elizabeth II. The rare father-son moment was captured in a photograph that was shared to mark the end of the Queen's Green Canopy project, a tree-planting initiative launched in May 2021 ahead of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
The photograph showed the king and prince donning their wellies and outdoor wear while planting a tree together to signify the end of the initiative. In a rare show of emotion, King Charles reflected on his mother's legacy and expressed his gratitude to everyone who helped to plant over three million trees in her name through the initiative.
As the second planting season comes to a close, the king said that the project had shown how simple, practical, and positive gestures can make a big difference. He also noted that the initiative was a fitting tribute to his late mother's 70-year reign, and an enduring legacy that would benefit future generations.
Royal fans were quick to react to the photograph, commenting on the father-son relationship and the family bond that was on display. They praised the king and prince for their professional working relationship and their commitment to preserving the environment through the Green Canopy project.
However, while the relationship between King Charles and Prince William remains strong, reports suggest that the king's bond with his youngest son, Prince Harry, is strained following the announcement of Harry's bombshell memoir, Spare. It is not yet known whether Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, will attend the coronation of King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla on May 6, although it has been confirmed that they are on the invite list.
In summary, the touching moment shared by King Charles and Prince William in honor of the late Queen Elizabeth II has warmed the hearts of royal fans around the world. The Green Canopy project has shown that small gestures can make a big impact and is a fitting tribute to the Queen's legacy. While there may be tension within the royal family, the king's commitment to preserving the environment and the family's tradition of service remains strong.
