New Delhi: Heir to the British throne Prince Charles wrapped up his two-day visit to India by celebrating his birthday in Mumbai on Thursday with children there. The Prince of Wales turned 71 on Thursday.

In a statement on the Mumbai leg of his visit on Thursday, the British High Commission said, “On arrival in Mumbai, His Royal Highness (HRH) joined a British Asian Trust meeting to gain an update on the work of the Trust in India.  The meeting included discussion around the Quality Education Development Impact Bond.”

 

It further said, “He then attended a discussion with influential Indian business leaders on how to accelerate a transition to sustainable markets. Senior attendees representing finance, transportation, technology and life sciences explored how to connect sustainable investors to sustainable opportunities around the world. The discussions will inform how HRH and the Sustainable Markets Council might advance specific initiatives. Issues discussed included access to green finance markets, biodiversity, waste and plastics reduction and renewable energy.”

The British High Commission added, “HRH (Prince of Wales) also had the opportunity to meet artist Haribabu Natesan whose artwork — made of recycled material was on display during the meeting. HRH finished his programme by meeting children who have benefitted from support from the British Asian Trust.  The Prince was also sung happy birthday by the children to celebrate his 71st year.”
