Background: Prince Charles, the Prince Wales, who is serving as a sub-lieutenant on H.M.S. "Norfolk", arrived in Malta yesterday (Wednesday). The Prince, wearing a black arm-band in mourning for his great-uncle, the Duke of Windsor, met the press shortly after
the Royal Navy destroyer docked in the harbour of Valletta.
Although he was originally expected to remain six days in Malta, Prince Charles will be cutting short his stay to fly to London tomorrow (Friday) so as to attend the funeral on Monday with the rest of the Royal Family.
The Duke of Windsor died in Paris on Sunday (May 28) at the age of 77. He will be buried in Frogmore Mausoleum on the grounds of Windsor Castle. His body will lie-in-state in St. George's Chapel at the Castle on Friday and Saturday, and the funeral will take place on Monday (June 4).
