The pair attended the Sandringham Flower Show and were given wristbands and badges by Help for Heroes to wear. The badge is a new initiative created to be worn by police in England and Wales who were barred from wearing the wristband because of a strict dress policy.
Norfolk Chief Constable Ian McPherson said Charles was the first person in the country to receive the badge, which features the colors of the three armed forces and is designed for the use of police officers.
“The badges were developed by Norfolk Constabulary so that officers would have a smarter alternative to wearing the Help for Heroes wrist band,” he said. “The Prince said he was a huge supporter of Help for Heroes and was delighted we’d taken the initiative.”
Help For Heroes is a charity aimed at helping injured British service personnel returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.
