Prince Charles and Camilla visited one of London’s most famous locations, The 100 Club, to support London’s nighttime economy. The pair were wearing face coverings as the meeting took place indoors, but appeared to be in high spirits as they were welcomed with smiles and cheers by staff.
The Prince of Wales and the Duchess were given a tour of the location before they sat down to enjoy a live performance by singer and songwriter Emily Capell and drummer Matt Cowley.
The royals appear to have enjoyed the show, as Camilla could be seen smiling beneath the face covering, while Prince Charles was following the rhythm by tapping his fingers on the table.
Today, Prince Charles and Camilla also visited Soho Theatre, where they were welcomed by staff and London Mayor’s Sadiq Khan.
With their visits, the couple, known to be supporters of the arts, aimed at encouraging people to return to entertainment venues now that London has become once again a Tier 2 area.
Tier 2 areas continue to be subjected to stringent regulations.
However, venues that have been made COVID-secure have been allowed to reopen their doors.
Among the locations people can now visit there are museums, shops, pubs, restaurants and leisure and entertainment venues.
Places of worship as well as personal care services were also allowed to reopen.

While the royal couple usually receive good feedback and positive comments on Twitter and Instagram, Charles and Camilla have been experiencing a wave of criticism and abuse online over the past few weeks.
The rise in the number of online abuse, insults and criticism addressed to the couple appears to have begun shortly after the fourth season of The Crown was released in mid-November.
The latest 10 episodes of this Netflix show heavily focus on Prince Charles, Princess Diana and Camilla’s relationships.
However, the show has been accused of distorting reality for the sake of fiction by several royal commentators, who added many watchers could believe the events portrayed are the truth rather than a dramatised representation of the facts.
