The Prince of Wales then shared one of his all-time favorite recipes, “Cheesy Baked Eggs,” which he enjoys using a variety of cheeses and locally-sourced vegetables.

Charles has become an advocate for farmers across the U.K., writing that recent events have focused a spotlight on an industry that has perhaps been dismissed as commonplace for too long.

“When was the last time anyone gave the availability of a bottle of milk, or a loaf of bread, or fresh vegetables a second thought?” he said.

“Suddenly, these things are precious and valued. And this is how it always should be.

“Food does not happen by magic,” Charles continued. “If the past few weeks have proved anything, it is that we cannot take it for granted.

“In this country, there are 80,000 farmers producing our food — from the Fells of Cumbria to the arable and vegetable lands of East Anglia; from the Welsh Mountains to the Scottish fishing villages; from the dairy fields of Cornwall and Northern Ireland to the orchards of Kent.

“Day in and day out, they are working to produce food — for us,” he said. “And we owe them an enormous debt of gratitude. But they cannot do it alone.”
