Prince Charles Celebrates Trip To India With First Ever Instagram Post

As Prince Charles gears up to embark on a royal tour of India, the royal is getting personal on Instagram.

In his first-ever post, personally written by the Prince of Wales, he shared a personal message to the Clarence House Instagram page on Tuesday. The Clarence House page is usually full of updates on Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and their royal duties, but never handwritten by Charles.

“As I depart for India, on my tenth official visit, I did just want to convey my warmest best wishes to all of you in the Sikh Community in the United Kingdom, and across the Commonwealth, on the 550th Birth Anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji,” he wrote. “The principles on which Guru Nanak founded the Sikh religion, and which guide your lives to this day, are ones which can inspire us all – hard work, fairness, respect, and selfless service to others. In embodying these values, Sikhs have made the most profound contribution to the life of this country, and continue to do so, in every imaginable field, just as you do in so many other places around the world.”
