Prince Charles and Clarence House (clarencehouse)

I was fortunate to meet Prince Charles one chilly November night in London. A picture from the meeting is included in my celebrity photo gallery, which you can check out here, and the full backstory can be found here. But the short story is this: I was at an event, and Prince Charles walked right toward me! I didn’t know what to do so I just stuck out my hand. He looked at it for a second (it was awkward), and as the second passed I was thinking that I’d just committed a huge faux paux.

But then he shook my hand and asked me something. I don’t remember what his question was, but whatever I said to him back must have been good because a paparazzi later asked me what I’d said to make him laugh. I had no idea. I still don’t. I was just thinking that I couldn’t believe I’d just met the Prince. Anyway, the following day I spotted the back of my head in the papers. I can’t find one of us shaking hands and talking, but I know it’s out there, since thousands—and I mean thousands—of flashes were going off in the moment.

Fast-forward to today: According to Lonely Planet, Prince Charles recently shared his first-ever personal statement on Instagram (see the embedded post below) as he set off on his 10th official visit to India. The Clarence House Instagram account (clarencehouse) on which he shared the statement has close to a million followers and has been up for a while. Many of the pics shared on it are of the Prince’s travels. If you’re wondering what it’s like to travel like royalty, give him a follow!
