The royals enjoyed a day outdoors in memory of the late Queen Elizabeth II

King Charles and Prince William’s touching father-son moment has royal fans saying the same thing

King Charles and the Prince of Wales shared a heartfelt new photo together in memory of the late Queen Elizabeth II, which delighted royal fans.

The pair’s exceptional father-son interaction was documented to celebrate the Queen’s Green Canopy initiative, a tree-planting project that was started in May 2021 in advance of the late Queen’s then-imminent Platinum Jubilee. In the endorsing image, King Charles and Prince William planted a tree together while donning their outerwear and wellies.

 

King Charles and Prince William rallied together to plant the final tree as part of the initiative

“It is hard to believe that two years have passed since my mother and I planted a tree in Windsor Great Park to mark the beginning of the Queen’s Green Canopy,” the monarch said in one of his few public remarks about his mother since her passing.

I especially wanted to express my heartfelt gratitude to everyone from across the United Kingdom who has helped plant over three million trees to create an enduring legacy in Queen Elizabeth’s name as the second planting season draws to a close, Charles continued.

“This project has demonstrated how modest, useful, and kind actions can have a significant impact, and I can think of no more appropriate tribute to Her Late Majesty’s 70-year reign.”

“These two photographs’ side-by-side comparison is so moving. Another royal admirer chimed in, “So pleased that Charles has William as a son and as an heir.
