HRH The Prince of Wales

Prince Charles pays tribute to the UK TV workforce

HRH The Prince of Wales, patron of the Royal Television Society, has paid tribute to the cultural and economic contribution made by TV production teams in the UK.  

In an inspirational message, delivered at the RTS Craft & Design Awards 2020, Prince Charles said that lockdown had given him “renewed admiration” for the skills of all types of programme-makers.  

This was based on personal experience. To keep in touch during the early days of the pandemic, he said that he had been forced to shoot and edit short films in order to maintain contact with the outside world.
