Prince Charles and Camilla's Chinese New Year message pays tribute to the annual celebration celebrated in China and by Chinese communities across the globe. Their well wishes come as their Chinese zodiac predictions for the Year of the Tiger indicate an end to their royal rift.


Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla shared a statement in celebration of Chinese New Year 2022

It reads, "My wife and I would like to wish a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year to all those in China – and everyone celebrating the new Lunar Year across the world."

The Clarence House message continues, "As we enter the Year of The Tiger, known for courageous action and rising to challenge and adventure, I hope the whole world will make this a year of action."

The Prince, a keen environmentalist added, "Together let’s create a better future for all our children by shifting the way we live and work to be in harmony with Nature and the planet."

However, the final lines of the message are the ones that some say stand out the most, in light of the current state of affairs within the Royal Family. "The blessing of the tiger brings happiness to all families in the year of the tiger."

This message is only shortly after it was revealed that Prince Charles fears Prince Harry’s memoir will cause ‘reputational damage’ to Camilla.

Despite these fears, ahead of the memoir's release, it has also been claimed that Prince Harry video calls Prince Charles in hope of being ‘closer to his family’ ahead of Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The predictions for Prince Charles and Prince Harry's Chinese zodiac sign are spookily accurate to their ongoing family discord. Luckily, according to Chinese zodiac 2022 predictions for the Year of the Tiger, both Prince Charles and Prince Harry's signs show potential to move forward.

Predictions for those born in the Year of the Rat, like Prince Charles, include the warning, "Don't let past hurts block you from happiness." It also portents,  "You're more in touch with extended family members this year."

The interesting twist is that Prince Harry was also born in the Year of the Rat, so perhaps reconciliation is going to happen in 2022, with the power of the Water Tiger.
