As he gets closer to becoming king, Prince Charles deputized for Queen Elizabeth on a personal visit.
In June, PRINCE CHARLES paid a very personal visit to honor Prince Philip.
In June, Prince Charles, 72, paid a visit aboard the ‘Duke of Edinburgh,’ a new Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) lifeboat named after his late father, Prince Philip. The Prince of Wales made a homage to the Duke’s naval service by installing a silver plate with an etched magpie on the boat during this low-key visit to the RNLI Lifeboat Centre in Poole.
On the day, photos show the heir to the throne using a screwdriver to attach the little plate to the boat.
This move was clearly a nod to HMS Magpie, which Prince Philip took command of on this date in 1950.
The visit was made on the ‘Duke of Edinburgh’ with the sole purpose of honoring Prince Philip.
And he may have acted as a stand-in for the Queen, who had lately lost her husband.
Prince Philip died on April 9, just a few months before his 100th birthday, at Windsor Castle.
After a period of royal sorrow, the Queen resumed her working schedule in June.
The first in-person meeting with Prime Minister Boris Johnson since the outbreak began, as well as her royal trip of Scotland, were among the highlights of her diary from that month.
Despite her sparkling health, the 95-year-old Queen has begun delegating duties to other members of her household or being accompanied to engagements beyond the royal walls more frequently.
Her Majesty will be escorted by another member of the Firm to three of the Queen’s six engagements already confirmed by Buckingham Palace, which will take place between October and early November.
To commemorate the Duke’s centenary, the new RNLI lifeboat was supposed to be named after his title.
In 2022, the ‘Duke of Edinburgh’ lifeboat will be launched at Wells-next-the-Sea, near Sandringham.
The site is particularly poignant because Prince Philip spent much of his retirement from royal duties at Wood Farm on the Sandringham estate between the summer of 2017 and March 2020.
The RNLI wished to pay tribute to Prince Philip’s legacy and naval service, and he welcomed the gesture, according to Buckingham Palace.
The RNLI’s chief executive, Mark Dowie, discussed the homage paid by the “Brinkwire Summary News.”
