A group of activists lobbied Charles, Prince of Wales, to 'go vegan' on his recent trip to Greece with partner Camilla.
While the primary cause for the royal trip appeared to be their visit to the Commonwealth War Graves in Athens, the pair had an unexpected run in with a group of activists.
Smiling advocates waved from a balcony in royal view, holding a banner that read: "CHARLES, GO VEGAN! COMPASSION LOOKS GREAT ON YOU!"
Their demonstration also included a chant, in which they said: "Please, Charles, please go vegan."
During the trip, when sharing coffee with locals, Charles reportedly refused a straw as part of his effort to reduce plastic use.
