Prince Charles just made his Instagram debut, and no, we’re not kidding.

It all started earlier today when the 70-year-old royal shared his first-ever photo on Clarence House’s official Instagram account. The post honored the Sikh community ahead of Prince Charles’s two-day trip to India on November 13.

He wrote, “As I depart for India, on my tenth official visit, I did just want to convey my warmest best wishes to all of you in the Sikh Community in the United Kingdom, and across the Commonwealth, on the 550th Birth Anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.”

Prince Charles went on to explain the significance, writing, “The principles on which Guru Nanak founded the Sikh religion, and which guide your lives to this day, are ones which can inspire us all—hard work, fairness, respect, and selfless service to others. In embodying these values, Sikhs have made the most profound contribution to the life of this country, and continue to do so, in every imaginable field, just as you do in so many other places around the world.”

The royal concluded the post with a message to the Sikh community: “This week, as Sikhs everywhere honor the founder of your faith, my wife and I wanted you to know just how much your community is valued and admired by us all, and that our thoughts are with you at this very special time. — HRH The Prince of Wales.”

Now that Prince Charles has made his Instagram debut, it’s only a matter of time before he gets an account of his own. (Wishful thinking, we know.)
