"Ramadan provides time to reflect on one’s own blessings and to give gratitude for them. One of the greatest ways of showing gratitude in Islam, I understand, is by being of service to those less fortunate in our society.

The Duke and Duchess took to social media

"The generosity of spirit and kind-hearted hospitality of Muslims does not cease to astound me and I am sure that as we enter more uncertain times, with many now struggling to cope with increasing challenges, the Muslim community will again be a source of immense charitable giving this Ramadan.

"There is much we can all learn from the spirit of Ramadan – not only the generosity, but also abstention, gratefulness and togetherness in prayer which will give great comfort to many across the world during this blessed month.

"- HRH The Prince of Wales."

Royal fans were delighted to hear from the Duke and Duchess. One commented: "Waalaikkummusalaam. Thank you, your Royal Highness. May Allah SWT bless you and our family happiness and good health."

Another fan said: "Wa alaykum salaam warahmatullaahi wabarakatuh. Thank you for the wishes." Another follower replied: "Happy Ramadan Prince."
