Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s pregnancy is cause for celebration, but no need to twist Prince Charles’s arm.

The Prince of Wales celebrated his forthcoming grandchild with a visit to Diageo’s Single Malt Distillery in Crathie, Scotland, today and tied a few back whilst wearing a kilt.

The future king was there on official business, aka to pick up a rare cask of single malt Scotch whisky that was made 30 years ago as a gift to him. And because there’s no time like the present, his royal highness even tapped the cask open himself.

With his own personal cask open and ready for (royal) business, Prince Charles helped himself to a wee nip of Scotch. From the look on his face, it tasted damn good. In the end, he decided to donate the cask to be auctioned off, with proceeds benefiting his charity, The Prince’s Foundation. 

We’ll toast to that…for Harry and Meghan of course.
