Prince Charles has sparked a sweet reaction from royal fans who are thrilled to see him looking so happy in new photographs of him attending an engagement. 


Photographs of Prince Charles joining in with the British Asian Trust's charity bike ride at his and Duchess Camilla's Gloucestershire home were shared on the Clarence House Instagram page. 

The snaps show the future King pedalling away with a huge grin on his face, sporting a beige suit with a summery light blue tie and pink floral pin. 

"Ready, set... go! 🚲," the caption beside the upload reads.

"The Prince, Founding Patron of the British Asian Trust, has joined cyclists at Highgrove to kick-start the ‘Palaces on Wheels’ bike ride in aid of The Trust’s vital work in South Asia.

"The event carries on from previous cycling events from @theBritishAsianTrust, which has seen British cyclists travel through 🇱🇰 Sri Lanka, 🇮🇳 India, 🇹🇿 Tanzania and 🇰🇭 Cambodia over the years. This year will see cyclists at home for the first time. 🇬🇧."

Royal fans flooded the comment section with kind words, pleased to see the eldest of Queen Elizabeth's children looking so happy and enjoying his work.

"Good to see Prince Charles having so much fun," one penned.

"What a wonderful project!!! So glad to see HRH so clearly enjoying himself ❤️," another wrote. 

"What a great smile!!! 👏," a third agree, while one more chipped in to add, "He looks so cute… ❤️."

"Prince Charles is always smiling & laughing with people he meets. He comes across as a People's Prince. He'll make a wonderful King.❤️," another commenter said, looking on to Charles' reign. 

Prince Charles recently expressed his joy over the birth of his granddaughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, having become a grandfather for the fifth time.

Speaking during his appearance at the Mini factory in Oxford this week, the Prince of Wales touched on his son and Meghan Markle's lovely arrival. 

He said, “The development of technology like electric vehicles, or green hydrogen for that matter for heavy transport, is vital for maintaining the health of our world for future generations, something I am only too aware of today, having recently become a grandfather for the fifth time.

“Such happy news really does remind one of the necessity of continued innovation in this area – especially around sustainable battery technology – in view of the legacy we bequeath to our grandchildren.”

Prince Charles is now grandfather to Prince William and Kate Middleton's children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, plus Harry and Meghan's brood of two—Archie Harrison and newborn Lilibet, who is set to be known as Lili.
