Mitten im Corona-Lockdown
Prince Charles criticized for visiting his father’s clinic
Prince Charles has been criticized for visiting his 99-year-old father, Prince Philip, at King Edward VII Hospital on Saturday afternoon. For the 30-minute visit he had driven more than 300 kilometers from Highgrove in Gloucestershire to London and back. Some users on social media do not like the fact that the 72-year-old British heir to the throne did this despite the corona-related lockdown in the country. With the hashtags princephilip and princecharles they vented their criticism.
A Twitter user wrote: “I hope Prince Phillip is better, but why was Prince Charles allowed to visit his father in the hospital when families across the country are not allowed to visit their loved ones who are in the hospital?” Another asked: “Not disrespectful to princephillip. But double standards. Does Prince Charles get a fine?”
But many jumped at Prince Charles, who had left the hospital visibly moved, as the “Daily Mail” reports. “Good Morning Britain” presenter Piers Morgan defended the prince on Instagram with the words: “What an incredibly sad picture. A son moved to tears after seeing his seriously ill 99-year-old father in the hospital. If your first
The reflex is to scold or gossip about Prince Charles’ visit to Prince Philip, then just be quiet. ”
Prince Philip, husband of 94-year-old Queen Elizabeth II, was admitted to the hospital on February 16 as a precautionary measure. He had previously felt uncomfortable. He should stay there until next week.
