Prince Charles And Camilla Urge You Not To Forget About Your Older Family Members This Christmas

It's easy to get caught up in the chaos of Christmas. With gifts to buy, booze to guzzle, turkey to eat, and nieces to snuggle, we can get consumed in our own world. However, it's important to remember our loved ones who are a bit older during this time of year.

Prince Charles and Camilla are here to remind us all to remember our senior loved ones at Christmas.

Sharing their Christmas photo, HRH Prince Charles used his platform to share an important message.

Posing with his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall by a large Christmas tree, the pair share important statistics about seniors during the holiday season.

"This Christmas, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall encourage you to remember your older friends and relatives over the festive season," the message began.

"Did you know almost 1.5 million older people feel more lonely at Christmas than any other time of year?"

Their post continued: "@age_uk and The Silver Line’s #BrighterChristmas campaign supports those who may be lonely this year."

"The Prince is Patron of Age UK, a charity that supports older people throughout the UK, and The Duchess is Patron of The Silver Line, which provides a 24 hour helpline for older people to call for information, support or just a friendly chat."

The post was received well by fans of the royal couple.

"That's a great reminder," said one fan. "Merry Christmas and your tree is magical."

"I always remember my older friends and relatives. We always get together for Christmas: they are never alone. The more the merrier," said another.

"Merry Christmas! Thank you for all the positivity, smiles and dedication to your country!" echoed a different fan.

What a great reminder during this special time of year.
