Royals start wearing masks?
London: With many European kings and queens having donned face masks for in-person engagements since the easing of lockdown in their countries, members of the British royal households are yet to be seen in a face covering.
Prince Charles, 71, and Camilla, 72, chose not to wear masks while venturing out for a three day tour of Cornwall this week, while
Prince William, 38, and Kate Middleton, 38, have also opted to forego the covering for recent in-person engagements.
The decision by the British royal family not to wear masks during public engagements comes in stark contrast to the attitude undertaken by their European counterparts. Queen Letizia, 47, and King Felipe of Spain, 52, have frequently stepped out wearing medical masks during their tour of the country over the last month, while Queen Matilde of Belgium has often colour-matched her mask to her outfit.
