Prince Charles and Camilla ‘may have broken royal protocol’ during visit to club

Prince Charles, Duke of Cornwall, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, enjoyed a night of clubbing when lockdown in England lifted this week – but reportedly breached royal protocol in the process.

The 72-year-old heir to the throne and his 73-year-old wife were guests at London’s iconic 100 Club on Thursday night (December 3) to show support to entertainment venues that are reopening across England following the end of Lockdown 2.0.

As part of their royal visit, the couple added their signatures to a wall that has already been autographed by many of the music legends that have performed at the basement club – including the likes of Oasis and the Sex Pistols.

However, the Express reports that signing the wall in the Green Room of the gig venue would have been in breach of royal protocols as members of the Royal Family are not supposed to hand out their autographs anywhere and everywhere.

The outlet reports: “Royals are not allowed to give out their signature because of the risk of it being forged.”

However, it seems Charles and Camilla enjoyed their night on the town regardless of the potential regal slip up.

The royal duo were treated to a performance by Emily Capell and Matt Cowley – and were given a tour by manager Jeff Horton and co-manager Ruby Horton.

The Prince and Duchess also visited the Soho Theatre on Thursday evening for a social distanced performance of a play called Half Breed by Natasha Marshall.

Speaking to the royals following her performance, Natasha explained she was wearing her Morrison's uniform because she had squeezed her show in around shifts at a supermarket.

The BBC quote her as saying: ""I've got to go back later, so it was easier to keep it on, I'll be in such a rush.

"It's such a pleasure to meet you. The theatre has supported me so much I jumped at the chance to perform today."

The prince is reported to have remarked: "That's marvellous, such dedication. I really enjoyed the performance and I am praying all of you can open soon. I wish you every success."

The UK’s performance venues have been crippled by the coronavirus pandemic with many venues, theatres, and performance spaces being shut since March due to the health crisis.

London’s West End is leading the way in reopening venues for social distanced performances – with shows including Les Miserables and Six offering theatre-goers shows to watch in the run up to Christmas.
