Prince Charles’ Message to Muslims Observing the Traditional Fast
Prince Charles is marking the end of Ramadan with a personal message. In the video message, the heir to the throne addressed the Muslim community and acknowledged the challenges they face as they observe their religious fast amid the ongoing COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions.
“This last year I know has been deeply challenging for us all and I’m only too aware of the impact of the pandemic on the Muslim community,” the Prince of Wales shared in the footage released on Monday night as part of a campaign to encourage those taking part in the celebration to stay at home during Ramadan, which will end on Wednesday.
When he addressed the loss of lives the past year and this year, he also mentioned his own personal loss, as his father, Prince Philip, passed this year at the age of 99.
“This year, too many families like my own will have an empty seat at their dinner table and friends are no longer able to share the celebratory hug after Eid prayers,” he said. “I can only say how deeply saddened I am by this tragic situation and how my heart goes out to all those who have lost their loved ones.”
