Prince Charles put on a brave face for his first appearance since being blindsided by his youngest child.
The 72-year-old Prince of Wales smiled and joked around with the key workers on the Isles of Scilly on Monday, just hours after it was revealed that Prince Harry has been working on an explosive memoir for over a year.
Charles put on his best poker face and acted as if nothing was wrong, despite "chaos" reportedly breaking out at the palace following the news.
Harry and Prince William's father looked dapper in a tan-colored suit. He wore his sunglasses while chatting with attendees and appeared to be unfazed, although reports claim otherwise.
Charles wasn't alone. He had his wife Camille by his side for support.
The future king didn't miss a beat.
Charles showed that nothing can keep him from his royal duties -- not even a tell-all that is said to blow the lid wide open on the royal family feud.

As Radar exclusively reported, Harry collected a $15 million advance for his memoir, but dishing about his family's troubles is part of the deal.
“This book is going to make the Oprah interview look like the tip of the iceberg. Harry is not getting a $15 million advance just because of who he is, he is getting it because he is going to tell everything,” sources tell us.
No one in the family knew about Harry's super-secret memoir plans.
An insider told Page Six, "chaos" erupted at Kensington Palace following the announcement, with Charles being “surprised” about his youngest son's latest venture.
The yet-to-be-titled book is scheduled to be released next year.
“In an intimate and heartfelt memoir from one of the most fascinating and influential global figures of our time, Prince Harry will share, for the very first time, the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him," the blurb for the book reads.
While the manuscript was first reportedly due in August, the palace has another few months to breathe. A source claims the date has been pushed until October.
