The picture, taken on the second day of Royal Ascot in June, shows the heir-to-the-throne helping his wife  to adjust her face mask during the race meeting.

The snap, which will be the Prince of Wales’ festive greeting this year, seems especially fitting in light of new restrictions requiring people in England to wear masks on public transport, shops and indoor public spaces such as post offices, theatres and hairdressers.

But it also depicts Charles as a loving husband to Camilla, whom he married in April 2005 after a love affair that lasted decades.
