Prince Charles urged to speak to Queen over death of Indigenous children in schools across Canada

Among the featured pieces was a replica of a light blue knitted cardigan given by Nonia to the Queen after Charles was born in 1948.

“I bet I wore it,” the prince said after examining it. “Have you seen any photographs?

Meeting a group of women who were hard at work on their latest knits, he joked, “You knit, you don’t join?

Said they had done a lot of both before he arrived, the prince revealed he learned to knit when he was ‘eight or nine’ but has now ‘forgotten’.

Admiring a woman’s skills, he noted, “I’m sure you can do it while watching TV at the same time.”

Particularly keen to know if any of the band members had introduced the next generation to the skill, he said: “The thing is, the youngsters do it.

“Maybe it’s something you do as you get older. People learn from their grandmothers, don’t they?”

The prince received a pair of patterned gray and white mittens as a gift, along with Canadian wool and instructions for designing his own rug.

The Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex spent time in Canada.

The Duke of Cambridge last enjoyed a warmly welcomed visit in 2016, with the Duchess of Cambridge and their two eldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The Duke of Sussex spent private time in Toronto while dating Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and chose the city to host his Invictus Games.

The Commonwealth tour follows two visits to the Caribbean by the Cambridges and the Earl and Countess of Wessex respectively, which were dominated by demands for reparations for slavery and calls for the islands to become republics.
