Coronavirus cases in the UK have witnessed a sharp rise and people have been following the precautions in a bid to protect themselves from the deadly virus spread across the world. Amid fear of COVID-19, people have ditched physical contact like shaking hands while greeting each other, including the Royal family.
In such a critical condition, the Royal family has also followed Indian tradition while greeting people. A video surfaced the Internet in which Prince Charles was seen greeting people with a Namaste instead of formal handshakes. The video was recorded at the annual Prince’s Trust Awards on March 11 at the London Palladium.
The video has gone viral on the Internet. The clip of Prince Charles was shared by IFS officer Parveen Kaswan with a caption, “Namaste. See, we Indians told to do this to the world many many years ago. Now just a class on 'how to do a namaste properly.”
The video shows Prince Charles arriving at the London Palladium in his car and then he steps out to meet people. Prince Charles offers his hand and then he immediately reminds about the precautionary measures and greets people with Namaste.
Due to coronavirus people across the world refrain from greeting with handshakes and following Indian traditional way of greeting each other.
The video has flooded the Internet with views, likes, and comments.
