Prince Charles celebrates 71st birthday in India.

Prince Charles celebrated his 71st birthday by sharing a chocolate cake with schoolchildren in Mumbai.

The group sang Happy Birthday to Charles as he cut the cake.

He offered one girl a piece from the end of the knife — and could not resist licking his fingers afterwards.


He met the children on the final day of his two-day trip to India.

They had been stumped over what to give him for his birthday, but came up with the idea of three bonsai fairy gardens, which feature tiny figures telling stories about the Hindu deity Krishna.

Their school has been supported by the prince’s British Asian Trust and the Piramal Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Piramal Group led by billionaire Ajay Piramal.

His wife, Dr Swati Piramal, said: “What can you give a prince? So they thought of the bonsai gardens.

“He really loved it, because in England there’s a culture of fairy gardens, there are gnomes, but this is unique because this is Krishna’s fairy garden.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were among those wishing the prince a happy birthday.


They posted a new photograph on Instagram showing him with Prince Harry and Archie, captioned: “Happy birthday to His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales — Sir, Pa, Grandpa!”
