Very honoured to meet fellow royalty HRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall at the 20th anniversary celebration of the London Farmers Market at Swiss Cottage. We actually both attended the Newman Canonisation at Vatican City in October 2019 but did not meet there. 👑❤️🐈⁣ | @clarencehouse @londonfarmers ⁣⁣ ⁣ “In the age when he lived, Newman stood for the life of the spirit against the forces that would debase human dignity and human destiny. In the age in which he attains sainthood, his example is needed more than ever – for the manner in which, at his best, he could advocate without accusation, could disagree without disrespect and, perhaps most of all, could see differences as places of encounter rather than exclusion.” – HRH Prince Charles⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #swisscottage #nw3 #swisscottagefarmersmarket #londonfarmersmarkets #LFM20 #london #celebration #instaphoto #johnhenrynewman #PrinceofWales #DuchessofCornwall #RoyalVisit #cat #cats #royalcat #therapycat #quitathekitty #princecharles #penrosecare #instacat⁣ ⁣ Photo by @penrosecare manager @olgaggomez90
