    As I depart for India, on my tenth official visit, I did just want to convey my warmest best wishes to all of you in the Sikh Community in the United Kingdom, and across the Commonwealth, on the 550th Birth Anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji. The principles on which Guru Nanak founded the Sikh religion, and which guide your lives to this day, are ones which can inspire us all – hard work, fairness, respect, and selfless service to others. In embodying these values, Sikhs have made the most profound contribution to the life of this country, and continue to do so, in every imaginable field, just as you do in so many other places around the world. This week, as Sikhs everywhere honour the founder of your faith, my wife and I wanted you to know just how much your community is valued and admired by us all, and that our thoughts are with you at this very special time. . – HRH The Prince of Wales #RoyalVisitIndia #Gurupurab550

    Duchess Camilla had reportedly been waiting for her husband at a lavish health retreat located on a 30-acre farm and has been keen to get her husband involved in some homeopathic treatments offered at the resort, to provide him with some much needed relaxation time on his birthday.

    A royal source told HELLO! magazine, “The Duchess has been determined to force the Prince to have some down time on his birthday and insisted he join her at her retreat.”

    The Prince of Wales was also treated to a rather delicious looking chocolate cake during his visit to the British Asian Trust on the morning of his special day.

    As he met with school children at the event, he was kindly gifted the sweet treat along with a birthday card from the pupils as they serenaded him with a rendition of Happy Birthday.

    Of course, the Princes’ family sent him their own birthday wishes all the way from back home in the UK via social media.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Instagram page, Sussex Royal, shared a photo of Charles standing beside his son, Prince Harry, who can be seen holding his own little one, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

    Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s posted a snap shot of Prince Charles cooing over his second youngest grandson, Prince Louis, in a cute family photo featuring Duchess Catherine.

    Happy birthday Prince Charles!
