The Prince of Wales has given a speech to mark the official unveiling of the new Royal College of Music campus in London.

Prince Charles, 73, who has been President of the institution since 1993, looked smart in a pinstripe suit as he took to the stage today.

The royal was pictured wearing his mask as he met flutist Amy Gillen during the opening ceremony, before removing it to give a talk.

The royal, who is a keen fan of opera and classical music, was then pictured watching Apolline Khou, a masters degree student from France, play the harpsichord.

Charles made his appearance to officially unveil the new Royal College of Music campus created by More Music, which has been constructed this year.

Opened in 1883 by the then Prince of Wales (later Edward VII), the RCM has trained some of the most important figures in British and international music life.

The Queen is the College’s official Patron, while Prince Charles has served as President since 1993. 

Prior to this, the Queen Mother was president for four decades and was awarded an honorary doctorate from the college.
