Charles also welcomed the President of france Emmanuel Macron in London during the Second World War anniversary in London on Thursday.
Other senior members of the royal family including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, has made public appearances to the week — Prince William at a bakery joking about how many sweets he has been eating, and Kate visiting a garden centre.
For months, the Royal Family exchanged handshakes to hashtags to connect with their public during the pandemic. A social media expert, said the pandemic the strategy has been a success.
Royal family ” always trying to reinvent themselves “
“The Royal Family are always trying to reinvent themselves,” said Diana Young, a London-based marketing consultant.
By posting videos and participate in video calls, the royals let the people in their home, and this is just what the public needs, said Young, founder of WeSocialis digital marketing agency.
“They want to see real people and realize that they are experiencing the same thing that we are going through. “
The younger members of the royal family have been using social media successfully for years, but Prince Charles has only adopted in the last few months.
The Prince Charles, ‘Instagram King’
The Prince of Wales has spent his solitary confinement in Scotland to fill her Instagram feed with a range of posts, serious posts of recipes for cheese eggs.
The “likes” on his posts are gone from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of people. A British brand it the ” Instagram King. ”
“For me, the real takeaway is that the Royal Family are now able to manage their online reputation,” says Young.
The members of the royal family may choose to keep some things virtual, because it is more easy to control than traditional media, ” she said.
And this is just a small post-COVID change compared to what royal biographer Andrew Morton predicted, in particular for the 94 years of the Queen.
“The brutal truth is that his reign is effectively over,” he said in a recent interview with The Telegraph.
The queen embraces Zoom
Morton felt that it could be months or years before it is able to carry out royal engagements in person.
“If she gets the bug it could be fatal and would put the Prince Philip at risk as well. The brutal truth is that his reign is effectively over. COVID-19 has done more damage to the monarchy than Oliver Cromwell. Corona has practically put Charles on the throne, ” he told the Telegraph.
But not everyone is in agreement that the Queen’s reign is over.
“You don’t necessarily need to start banding around words like Prince of the Regency and of the abdication simply because the Queen is at present not able to do some of the face-to-face,” said Camilla Tominey, associate editor with the Telegraph.
She said that the Queen was present during the pandemic. The monarch made a rare televised speech to the nation, in April, and appeared on a recent Zoom appeal in honour of Carers Week.
“I think in fact that they have managed to turn a crisis into an opportunity, showed that they are up with the times. They have modernized. I think the digital output has been good, and welcomed, ” Tomeny said.
Reduces the military Parade
The Queen has been photographed recently, a horse, and then again last weekend to scale back the military Parade of June 13. The event marks the monarch’s official birthday, normally, with the crowds in London lining the streets to see the Royal Family in the parade. This year, it was a small private event on the grounds of the Castle of Windsor.
“A lot of people look at a 94-year-old who may have been able to withdraw from public life for the longest time ever in his reign, and they forgive him if she has decided to put his monogrammed slippered feet,” said Tominey.
But this is not the Queen of kind, she said.
Tominey predicted the Queen will be back when it is safe to do so — pointing to the Queen of the currency the royal family ” must be seen to be believed. “
