The Prince of Wales celebrated his 73rd birthday on Sunday, while attending the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph in London, and later set off to travel to Jordan with Duchess Camilla. Clarence House commemorated Charles’s birthday with a new portrait of him sitting on a bench at Highgrove. Charles has attended events in the place of Her Majesty over the past few weeks due to her being under doctor’s orders to rest.
Neil Sean spoke about the Prince of Wales’s birthday on his YouTube channel.
Mr Sean said: “Here’s what I love so much about His Royal Highness Prince Charles. He does receive a lot of cards, a lot of gifts, and a lot of flowers as one could imagine.
“But what he does with those flowers is very quickly, they are sent over to charities, local children’s hospitals, hospices, that sort of thing so that others can benefit from his good fortune.
“Similarly with the presents, a lot of them do not actually get to be shown to Prince Charles because there’s so many of them, but what they do is decide where best suited they could be sent for more benefit.

“So if it’s soft toys, fun things like that, then, of course, it is distributed to the less privileged.
He added: “What I like about this is that Prince Charles himself writes back to people who’ve said to me gift and basically thanked him for it and does obviously ask, in future you know, to save their time and energy, and perhaps donate to one of his more deserving charities.
“For Prince Charles himself, he’s hit 73. He possibly can’t believe it because he’s one of these people that does seem rather ageless.
“But even he has had a very tough year this year with the loss of his father His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh.”
Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall arrived today for their royal visit to Jordan and Egypt this week, becoming the first members of the Royal Family to carry out a major overseas tour since the COVID-19 pandemic started.
The pair have enjoyed some time in private before their official engagements started today.
The Duchess of Cornwall was given a tour of Amman today, where she was personally chauffeured by Queen Rania driving a Tesla in stiletto heels.
Camilla and the Queen drove for the 30-minute journey across the capital city with a police escort to visit a children’s centre set up in her name.
Prince Charles is the longest serving heir-apparent, Duke of Cornwall, and Duke of Rothesay, with a tenure of 69 years.
He became heir apparent at the age of three when his mother, Princess Elizabeth, acceded to the throne on 6 February 1952.
