He’s currently Down Under for the Commonwealth Games, but Prince Charles took time out of his busy schedule to meet with one of Australia’s most beloved families.
The Prince met with Bindi, Robert and Terri Irwin on Lady Elliot Island on Friday, where the group attended a meeting on marine life and coral resilience - and they even made time to hang out with a few baby sea turtles.
Posting to Instagram, Bindi said: “Our family feels extremely privileged to have had the opportunity to meet with His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales and other dignitaries today at Lady Elliot Island,” she wrote. “We joined together to discuss important methods to protect the largest living structure on Earth. The Great Barrier Reef. We must work together to make a difference and protect these sensitive ecosystems for the generations to come #RoyalVisitAustralia.”
Robert also shared his experience of meeting Charles.
“Truly honored to meet His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales today @ladyelliotislandecoresort on the #GreatBarrierReef . It was great to speak about the conservation of this Wonder of the World with such a passionate and influential person.”
