- Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla have impressed fans for their "nonstop" work ethic during their recent Wales tour.
- The royal couple completed over twenty royal engagements on their week-long annual trip, leaving some fans wondering how they find the energy to keep going.
- In other royal news, Prince Harry and Prince William's rift is 'thawing'—but he's still 'stuck in a war of words' with this royal.
Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla wrapped up their annual Wales trip yesterday, after an intensive week of back-to-back engagements in the Cabria land.
A highlights reel of the jam-packed visit was posted on the Clarence House social media pages last night, revealing just how much ground the royal duo covered. From attending a historic Hay festival to stopping by a 6th-century cathedral, it looks like the couple wasted no time getting to know the lovely Welsh public.

Fans were quick to commend Charles and Camilla, who are both in their earlier seventies, for their high spirits throughout the trip.
"My gosh; they are going non-stop. You’d think after retirement age they’d stay home and watch Netflix," one Instagram user wrote.
While most people in the UK retire around the age of 66, Charles and Camilla have shown no signs of slowing down.
The couple appeared more than happy to mingle with the people of Wales, completing over twenty engagements in total between them over the busy week. And unlike many royal trips, which can take on an overly formal vibe, this particular tour had a refreshingly relaxed feel.
The Princes of Wales and the Duchess were seen at a number of casual spots during the visit, including a bookshop, a pub, and a cricket club. At one point, Prince Charles was even spotted in Iceland as fans joke he’s ‘eyeing up a great £3 meal deal.'
"What a lovely video! Tirelessly spreading good cheer across communities," another impressed fan wrote.
In true royal fashion, the couple didn't hold back when it came to sampling the local amenities. Prince Charles was praised for 'working so hard' as he tried his hand at the age-old skill of bell-ringing at St Brynach’s Church in Nevern, just a day before dabbling in the bartender trade at Ponthir House Inn in Ponthir.
"Wonderful videos, videos to be proud of. HRH the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall enjoying their time in Wales. Hard-working Royals doing what they know best," one fan commented.
The Wales tour kicked off directly after the couple's Scotland trip, where they also fulfilled a number of royal engagements. The Northern visit overlapped with the unveiling of Princess Diana's statue at Kensington Palace on 1 July, the date of what would have been the late royal's 60th birthday. Prince Charles reportedly had no intention of being present at the somber event—which was attended by Prince Harry and Prince William—having always struggled with tributes to his late ex-wife.
