Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, uploaded two new photos to Instagram of the late Duke.

"Remembering The Duke of Edinburgh, on what would have been his 100th birthday," the couple began the post before describing the snaps. "📷 1 - The Duke transfers his role of Colonel-in-Chief of the Rifles to The Duchess of Cornwall, during a joint ceremony at Windsor Castle and Highgrove in July 2020 (PA). 📷 2 - The young Prince Charles welcomes his father home from a trip to Malta in 1951 (PA)."

Camilla spent the day at the Garden Museum, where she interacted with volunteers from Floral Angels, a charity that recycles donated flowers from events and puts them in hospices and shelters in London.

"The Duchess of Cornwall is given a bouquet containing rosemary — a sign of remembrance on what would have been the 100th birthday of The Duke of Edinburgh," the message said, along with a photo of Camilla holding a bouquet. "'I’m very honoured to be here, to be doing something I know they both would have appreciated.' - The Duchess on The Duke of Edinburgh, and her father, Major Bruce Shand, who passed away 15 years ago tomorrow."
