  • A video appears to show Prince Charles falling asleep during the Queen’s speech in Parliament. 
  • The 71-year-old heir to the throne accompanied Her Majesty as she marked the State Opening after the general election.
  • However, as the monarch spoke Charles could be seen blinking rapidly and bowing his head, and he appeared to have his eyes closed at times.

Prince Charles appeared to nod off during the Queen’s speech at the State Opening of Parliament.

As Her Majesty’s eldest son and heir to the throne, the 71-year-old was there to accompany the monarch as she commemorated a new session of Parliament after the general election.

On a few occasions throughout the speech, Charles could be seen blinking before bowing his head, appearing to have his eyes closed.

Charles appeared to fall asleep. 

It’s not the first time the prince has appeared to fall asleep during an important televised occasion.

During the royal wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in 2018, during which Charles walked the duchess down the aisle, royal fans on Twitter seemed to think the prince nodded off upon return to his seat, as reported by Cosmopolitan.

Prince Harry once spoke about his father’s tendency to sleep in strange places during a documentary to mark Charles’ 70th birthday, saying it’s down to his busy work schedule. 

“Then [he] goes to his desk later that night and will fall asleep on his notes to the point of where he’ll wake up with a piece of paper stuck to his face,” he said.
