Charles, 71, clapped along as he stood indoors smartly dressed in an open necked shirt, and jacket with a handkerchief in his pocket.

Camilla, who is isolating from Charles because she does not have the Covid-19 illness, was also seen in separate footage clapping on her own as she looked out of an open window.
