Prince Charles attended the installation of the 11th Chief Rabbi of the UK and Commonwealth realms, a first for any member of the royal family.

When he was younger, the Prince of Wales had said that when he became King, he wanted to be "Defender of faiths" rather than "Defender of the Faith," one of a monarch's responsibilities as the "Supreme Governor of the Church of England."

Charles wore his very own velvet blue Kippah, embroidered with the Prince of Wales’ feathers.

Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis thanked His Royal Highness for attending the ceremony, which marked Mirvis as the new leader of Britain’s Jewish community.
