The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall both sported tartan outfits as they visited the Isle of Skye today.

Prince Charles, 72 and Camilla, 74, who are known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay when in Scotland, looked to be in jovial spirits as they visited Portree to see how businesses are moving forward following the coronavirus lockdown. 

During their time there, the royal couple tucked into some local fish and chips before applauding a special performance by Gaelic singer Robert Robertson. 

Prince Charles donned red and beige tartan – including a coordinating checked tie and kilt which he paired with a brown leather sporran – for the public outing.

Meanwhile, Camilla opted for a black, white and red check, which she wore in a knee-length skirt, and a green and red tartan which featured on the lapels of her bright pink coat. 

The royal, who kept her makeup natural and wore her hair perfectly coiffed, completed her outfit with a red blouse and some matching caramel-hued shoes. 

Prince Charles and Camilla were welcomed by the Lord-Lieutenant Joanie Whiteford before being taken on a tour through the town of Portree, where they were greeted by well-wishers, locals and tourists who lined the streets.

The visit marks the first time Prince Charles and Camilla have visited the Isle of Skye since 2009 – and they were sure not to waste a single second with their jam-packed schedule.

First up, they visited Skyeskyns, which is thought to be the only remaining commercial woolskin tanner in Scotland, a local gift shop, the Isle of Skye Soap Company and the Gin School. There, they spoke with the founding director Lydia Hartwell.

They then headed to a local hotel where they were treated to a special performance by Gaelic Folk singer Robert Robertson.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall finished their royal engagement by meeting with local food producers and Covid responders.
