PRINCE Charles has today been seen for the first time since he was blindsided by Harry's announcement of a tell-all memoir.
The royal was said to be "surprised" by his son's revelation – with the family told just moments before the news became public.
But he appeared carefree as he laughed and joked with key workers on the Isles of Scilly today.
Charles looked dapper in a light summer suit teamed with sunglasses while on a visit to St Mary's.
He is meeting with harbour staff before attending a private meeting with Camilla as part of a three-day tour of Cornwall and surrounding regions.
The green prince is also planning to visit Five Islands Academy School for an Eco Conference and Porthcressa Quay to meet key workers and local business owners.
His visit comes after Harry sensationally revealed he is penning a book that will examine the “highs and lows” of his extraordinary life as royal
Harry delivered the announcement on the first day in 15 months that Clarence House announced Charles and Camilla were on a public engagement.

The Sun broke the news to aides while Charles was at a reception in Lostwithiel, Cornwall, at 6.30pm.
It is not known if Harry — who met brother William at their mother Diana’s statue unveiling this month — previously told The Queen about it.
A spokesman for Harry last night said he told his family including the Queen about the book only “very recently”.
Harry is set to detail his life as a royal, his relationship with Meghan, Megxit and raising their children, Lilibet and Archie.
The book's publisher said it was an “honest” and “intimate” autobiography – sparking fears of more revelations after his Oprah interview with Meghan accused the Royal Family of racism.
In a statement from his £11million mansion in Montecito, California, Harry said: “I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.
“I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story – the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned – I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.
“I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a first-hand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.”
