Prince Charles and Prince Albert both attended WaterAid charity’s Water and Climate event at Kings Place last Tuesday.

Government representatives, community members and business leaders from across the world addended the event to discuss the impact climate change is having on drinking water.

During a speech, Prince Charles discussed coronavirus, noting how global efforts are being used to try and stop the virus from spreading.

Prince Albert of Monaco is a a long-term supporter of WaterAid, and attended the event in support of the charity.

Both Albert and Charles are believed to have been in close proximity to each other, although by this point the heir-to-the-throne was not shaking hands.

The Prince’s Palace in Monaco says there is no concern for the health of His Serene Highness and he will continue to work from his private apartments.
