Camilla and Prince Charles publicly marked Captain Tom’s 100th birthday with a heartfelt message shared on social media. The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince of Wales’ official social media account, Clarence House, published: “Wishing a very happy 100th birthday to @captaintommoore today!”
The birthday message was accompanied by a video in which Camilla praised the veteran for his fundraising efforts.
Speaking earlier this week to Dame Darcey Bussell and broadcaster Angela Rippon, Camilla highlighted how the coronavirus pandemic is bringing out the best of some people.
She said: “There is a silver lining to everything and a lot of good is going to come out of this horrible, horrible time.
“I think it is bringing out the best of many people, I think people are so kind you see, the tiny little things of helping their neighbours and probably talking to neighbours they have never talked before, doing their shopping…
“And that wonderful man Captain Tom, walking around and raising all that money.
“That sort of thing makes you proud to be British, doesn’t it?”
