Prince of Wales spends second day in India


The Prince of Wales spent a second, special day in India to conclude his trip.

The Prince was able to celebrate his 71st birthday in the Asian country and received a birthday cake and cards from school children in Mumbai during a British Asian Trust event in the morning at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel. This charity helps to support their education.

The children also sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to the royal and enjoyed chocolate cake after Charles cut the cake and joked around with the students.

Additionally, Prince Charles was given a present that contained stories of Hindu deity Krishna. Krishna is a major deity in Hinduism and is the god of compassion, tenderness, and love. His birthday is celebrated each year by Hindus.

Ajay Piramal, the billionaire Piramal Foundation ally, supports the school, and his wife said after the birthday party gift he received, “He really loved it when I showed it to him, because of course in England there’s a culture of fairy gardens, there are gnomes, but this is unique because this is Krishna’s fairy garden.”

Clarence House also said that His Royal Highness spent time chatting and spending time with business and finance leaders where they discussed Sustainable Markets. He then met a Mumbai based artist, Haribaabu Naatesan, to view his work. The artist creates art out of rubbish.

Prince Charles’ trip was billed as a way to deepen bilateral relations between India and the UK. His engagements ranged from sustainability to climate change issues.

The Prince of Wales will now return to Britain where he can celebrate his 71st birthday with the Duchess of Cornwall and hopefully all his grandchildren.
