Living it up! The dad-of-two looked like he was mingling with others.

"Earlier today at Dumfries House in Ayrshire, The Duke and Duchess of Rothesay unveiled a knitted art installation — it contains colourful knitted squares from all over the world, including Italy, Belgium, Tasmania, the United States and Canada!" a caption on Instagram read. "The knitted contributions were requested as part of @theprincesfoundation Knitwise initiative, in collaboration with The Joseph Ettedgui Foundation, which aims to showcase knitting as a tool for mental wellbeing and a traditional craftform that uses sustainable materials.The squares were sewn together to create the patchwork mosaic by staff from The Prince’s Foundation, participants of the charity’s textiles programmes, and prisoners in Stirling as part of a rehabilitation initiative."

"Thank you for the lovely welcome to Ayr today!" the message began. "The Duke and Duchess of Rothesay met local residents and shopkeepers on Alloway Main Street before visiting the cottage where Scottish poet Robert Burns was born in 1759. The Duke and Duchess enjoyed a tour of the historic cottage and John Scally, a Trustee of Friends of the National Libraries, showed TRH the original Auld Lang Syne manuscript. His Royal Highness has been Patron of Friends of the National Libraries since 2014 — the charity strives to save written and printed heritage and is currently working to save #HonresfieldLibrary manuscripts of the Brontës, Jane Austen, Walter Scott and Robert Burns for the UK."

"The collection includes an early volume of poems by Robert Burns in his own hand — containing some of his earliest recorded literary works, and some of the poet’s earliest correspondence, including a letter to his beloved father," the message continued.

Last stop! Camilla "joined a @womeninjournalism_uk mentoring session with female journalists and heard about some of the issues that they face," another caption read. "During the event, HRH spoke to broadcaster Yalda Hakim, who was born in Afghanistan and recently interviewed a Taliban spokesman. The Duchess said during a speech: 'I’ve been reliably informed that in 2020, there were 700 female journalists working in Kabul. Today, there are fewer than 100. With the loss of 600 voices, the experiences of countless Afghans will remain untold.' The Women in Journalism organisation offers skills-based workshops, monthly panel events, and an annual mentoring scheme. Members are from diverse social and ethnic backgrounds, at every stage of their careers, and work across all platforms around the UK and overseas."
