Royal fans were loving Prince Charles’ ‘cool’ look as he stepped out with sunglasses on for an engagement.

Prince Charles impressed fans earlier this week when he stepped out in a pair of pretty ‘cool’ sunglasses.

The heir apparent has been visiting Devon and Cornwall this week with his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

The royal couple have been making the most of the sunny weather in the area and carrying out important royal engagements while they’ve been there.

And yesterday saw the Prince of Wales visiting the area’s Middlemoor Fire Station to meet with key emergency workers who have been keeping the area safe throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

Sharing a series of photos showing Prince Charles meeting with workers at the fire station, Clarence House wrote on their Instagram page, ‘On His Royal Highness’s final day in Devon and Cornwall, The Duke of Cornwall met emergency service personnel at Middlemoor Fire Station. 🚨

‘During the pandemic, emergency services have cooperated and joined forces to ensure the South West was kept safe.

🚑🚒 The Fire Department, for instance, were able to relieve some of the pressures of NHS staff by training as ambulance drivers’.

And while many took to the comments to applaud Prince Charles for recognising the important group of people, others were more distracted by the royal’s choice of attire.

While the Duke of Rothersay opted for a muted greige and lilac suit combination, he completed his look with a pair of super stylish wayfarer sunglasses.

And fans were loving it.

He is rocking them shades,’ wrote one fan, while another commented, ‘Looking spiffy Prince Charles! 👌🏼😍’.

Others added, ‘diggin the shades’, ‘Looking cool in his shades 😎❤️ and ‘Those specs 🙌🏻😎’.

She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
