Royals, they’re just like us — even when it comes to staying fit!
Such is the case with Prince Charles, who joked about the struggle to keep in shape when he was gifted a shirt during a visit to the Emma Willis workshop in Gloucester, England Monday, People and UK’s Hello! Magazine report.
“Very kind of you – you’ve got my measurements. I struggle to keep them the same, a never-ending battle,” he quipped, according to the outlets.
During the visit, he met with injured service members sponsored by the company’s Style for Soldiers charity. The charity provides complimentary clothing and bespoke walking sticks for injured service men and women, according to an Instagram post from Clarence House on the prince’s appearance.
“I just wanted to come really to thank you, more than anything, for the wonderful things you do, apart from making fantastic shirts and boxer shorts and everything else,” he said in an impromptu speech, the outlets report. “But everything you do for our armed forces and all those who had the horror of being wounded in one way or another, it is a wonderful thing you do.”
The post also revealed he met two of the company’s cutters, Nareen Hussain and Ibrahim Khalil, who are both Syrian refugees.
This isn’t the only time the royals have gotten real recently.
Over the weekend, Duchess Kate opened up about having “mom guilt” during an appearance on the “Happy Mum, Happy Baby” podcast.
It’s a constant challenge, you hear it time and time again from mums,” Kate said. “You’re always sort of questioning your own decisions and your own judgment.”
The duchess was promoting her landmark national survey of early childhood questions that aims to create conversation around early childhood and build a healthy generation of children.
