Prince Charles Seen For First Time Amid Reports Prince Harry Didn't Ask Queen Elizabeth's Permission To Name Daughter Lilibet
Prince Charles returned to his royal duties amid all the drama circulating around his newborn granddaughter's name.
The 72-year-old looked happy and stopped to talk to fans while visiting a production plant for the Mini at Cowley near Oxford on Tuesday.
Looking dapper in a gray suit with a blue tie, Charles appeared to be in good spirits despite reports that Prince Harry failed to get permission from Queen Elizabeth to use her childhood nickname as his daughter's name.
Charles remained completely unbothered while chatting it with attendees up during his outing, even mentioning his grandchildren. Harry and Meghan Markle's latest addition marks grandchild number five for the royal.
"The development of technology like electric vehicles, or green hydrogen for that matter for heavy transport, is vital for maintaining the health of our world for future generations, something I'm only too aware of today having recently become a grandfather for the fifth time," Charles stated.
"And such happy news really does remind one of the necessity of continued innovation in this area, especially around sustainable battery technology, in view of the legacy we bequeath to our grandchildren," he added.
Harry and Meghan's daughter was only born on Friday and she's already making headlines.

As RadarOnline.com reported, Harry is threatening legal action against the BBC for publishing a report that he and Meghan didn't consult Queen Elizabeth about their daughter's name before crowning Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.
Hours after the outlet claimed they were told by Senior Buckingham Palace sources the Queen was "never asked" by the couple to use her cherished nickname for their baby, Harry hit back.
Using his and Meghan's close friend Omid Scobie to release a statement, the enraged prince insisted his grandmother was the first royal family member the couple called following their child's birth.
The statement also enforced that Harry and Meghan would have never given their daughter that name without Queen Elizabeth's permission.
Announcing the birth of their second child over the weekend, the couple explained why they chose the unique name.
“Lili is named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet. Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honor her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales," the statement from the couple's press secretary said on Sunday.
