Prince Charles charms opera singer Katherine Jenkins

Prince Charles giggled with Katherine Jenkins after seeing the opera singer perform at a police memorial unveiling earlier today.

The 71-year-old Prince of Wales has discovered a plaque in front of the memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, which commemorates the nearly 5,000 police officers and staff who have died on duty – 1,500 from acts of violence – since the founding of half-brothers Henry and John Fielding the Bow Street Runners in 1749.

After the event, Charles was seen talking to Katherine, 40, who sang during the service and seemed totally enamored with the royal family.

The pair, who first met over a decade ago, had a laugh with the Welsh singer appearing particularly tickled by a joke Charles had told.

The following year, the singer received an OBE from the Royal Family at Buckingham Palace in 2014.

At the time, she said, “The Prince is always very sociable and I’ve met him several times, so we always have a nice chat.

“He asked how long I’d been doing this and I said I’d been releasing albums for ten years and working with the British Forces Foundation for five years.

“He also commented on my hat—he said he loved the color.”
