Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles were on Thursday October 29 visiting the premises of the Bank of England in London. The Prince of Wales wore on this occasion a midnight blue striped suit, with a matching shirt and patterned tie, as well as a patterned mask. The latter is symbolic: this mask is produced by Turquoise Mountain, an organization founded by the Prince of Wales in 2006.
Turquoise Mountain creates models of sustainable urban production in Afghanistan, Burma, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the Middle East. Its job is to protect heritage and endangered communities around the world and to create jobs and provide access to education. Since its creation, it has made it possible to restore 150 buildings around the world. The products are available for sale online and in museum shops.
A busy schedule
By wearing this mask produced by the members of Turquoise Mountain, Prince Charles reaffirmed his support for his charges. Prince Charles’s tie, with zig-zag patterns, was a nod to the Fleet Air Arm, a branch of the Royal Navy. The Prince of Wales and his wife Camilla Parker Bowles follow a series of public appearances, and this despite the coronavirus pandemic which is shaking Europe. A few days ago Prince Charles met Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi at Clarence House, London.
