Ireland

Prince Charles and Camilla’s visit to Ireland also included Mullaghmore in County Sligo to pay their respects, where Lord Mountbatten was killed by an IRA bomb whilst on holidays in 1979. Lord Mountbatten’s grandson, Timothy Knatchbull, who survived the bomb blast, accompanied the royal couple.

 

Lord Mountbatten, known to the royal family as “Uncle Dickie”, was Prince Charles’ great-uncle and mentor who served with distinction within the Royal Navy, and he was also the last Viceroy of India.
