The Prince of Wales welcomed the Iraqi prime minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi to Clarence House on Thursday. Lucky for us, while the meeting took place behind closed doors, Clarence House gave us a small peek at the event on Instagram. One photograph in particular shows the future king in high spirits as he smiles at Mr. Al-Kadhimi with his arms wide open. Of course, the two men maintained a safe social distance.
And while we love to see the Duke of Cornwall taking on these major engagements as he prepares for the monarchy, we couldn’t help but be distracted by everything else going on in the background—specifically the extensive and elaborate decor.
