Even though Prince Charles has recovered swiftly after catching coronavirus it seems as though people are still worried about his health because of his hands... And the photographs are actually heartbreaking.
Keep scrolling to see them...
Prince Charles is the future King of England but his health may stop him from reaching his full potential.
via: Getty ImagesThe history of the royal family is an important part of British culture. The Brits are extremely proud that Queen Elizabeth is the longest-ruling monarch of the United Kingdom. Since her coronation on February 6th, 1952, she surpassed Queen Victoria's old record of sixty-three years on the throne in 2015.
Queen Elizabeth lived through the world war.

While there, Elizabeth made her first public appearance by way of radio broadcast. She famously said, "that in the end, all will be well; for God will care for us and give us victory and peace."
This was when then Princess Elizabeth first became known to the public.

She also began taking on more public duties.
via: Getty ImagesElizabeth's father appointed her colonel-in-chief of the Grenadier Guards and she made her first public appearances inspecting her troops.
But when her father died in February of 1952...
via: Getty ImagesElizabeth, the King's first-born, automatically became the Queen of England. And this will be the case for Prince Charles with the current Queen unfortunately passes.
By 2nd June 1953, Queen Elizabeth had officially taken on the reigns.
via: Getty ImagesShe was crowned at Westminster Abbey at the meager age of twenty-seven. Charles was present at his mother's crowning; He was aged 4 at the time. Interestingly, Elizabeth's was the first coronation to be shown on television.
She wasn't ruling totally alone, though because Prince Phillip was always by her side.
via: Getty ImagesElizabeth married Phillip Mountbatten (a distant relative of hers) on November 20th, 1947, when she was just twenty-one. She'd met Philip aged thirteen and the 2 quickly became totally smitten.
Philip wasn't an expected fit for the Queen.
via: Getty ImagesHowever, he was an important part of her life. Queen Elizabeth was known for being more reserved and thoughtful, while Philip always had a reputation for being a bit bold and brash, and he has always had something of a mixed reputation in high society.
But the pair continue to stand the test of time.
via: Getty ImagesSoon after their marriage, they were required to take the last name of Windsor, which caused tension between the pair. There have also been numerous public scandals, including rumors of Philip's infidelity. But to this very day, the couple remains happily married.
The pair wasted no time starting a family.
via: Getty ImagesTheir first child, Charles, was born in 1948, and is pictured of the left. Their second child, Anne, soon followed in 1950.
The Queen and Phillip have a total of 4 children together...
via: Getty ImagesQueen Elizabeth rule the United Kingdom with her family over the years, and over time, all of them have won over the public, including Prince Charles' father.
So hearing about his recent health concerns have been very unfortunate.
via: Getty ImagesThe ninety-eight-year-old has been battling several health problems over the past few years which have gotten particularly bad in the past few months.
The royal has undergone many surgeries in order to regain his health.
via: Getty ImagesHaving previously dealt with such things as a blocked coronary artery and a bladder infection just days before his 92nd birthday, Prince Philip underwent exploratory abdominal surgery which he recovered from.
And in 2015, he retired from public engagements after becoming the longest-standing royal consort in British history.
via: Getty ImagesBut soon after, he fell victim to another health issue which involved a hip replacement surgery and since then, he has been on a tragically rocky path.
And this is where Prince Charles comes in.
via: Getty ImagesPrince Charles, being the eldest out of Queen Elizabeth's children, is next in line to the throne, and will one day become the King of England.
He has already taken over a lot of the royal duties since his father's retirement.
via: GettyPreviously, he had already been doing a lot on behalf of his parents but 2015 marked the year when he took on a heavier responsibility.
One of his major projects involves his charity work.
via: Getty ImagesAccording to his website "for over forty years His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales has been a leader in identifying charitable need and setting up and driving forward charities to meet it."
And he has raised over $100 million in that time.
via: Getty Images"The Prince of Wales carries out dozens of engagements every year in support of his charities. Collectively The Prince of Wales's charities raise more than £100 million annually to support The Prince of Wales's charitable work in the UK and overseas."
So, it is unfortunate to also hear about his health concerns too.
via: Getty ImagesDuring this global pandemic wherein he would have wanted to continue his hard work, Prince Charles had tested positive for the virus.
How can a member of the most prestigious family in the world become infected with such a dangerous virus?
via: GettyIt's no secret that the royal family has access to some of the best healthcare in the world, so the fact that the heir to the throne has caught the virus is nothing short of scandalous.
But things seem to be much better for him now...
via: Getty ImagesOr are they?
Some specific pictures of the Prince have sparked further concern over his health.
