Charles and Camilla attend live performance together in central London

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have attended a live performance together in central London.

Charles, 72, and Camilla, 73, watched a show by The Royal Ballet at the Royal Opera House on Thursday evening in a rare night out together post-lockdown.

They watched Balanchine and Robbins, which celebrates the work of the two legendary American choreographers.

Charles wore a suit while Camilla was seen in a blue silk snowdrop print dress by one of her favourite designers, Fiona Clare.

The couple watched the show in private before attending a reception to meet the performers and Royal Opera House staff.

Ballerina Mayara Magri said: “I cannot tell you how excited we are to have them here.

“The prince said how wonderful it was to be back seeing a live performance again, and I told him it was the same for us to be here, performing.

“It’s just marvellous and so exciting. It was such a pleasure to have them here.”
