Susanna Reid threw shade at Prince Charles and Camilla on today’s Good Morning Britain as she discussed their trip to Greece amid new travel restrictions that could land Brits with a hefty fine.
Covid regulations that come into force from March 29 state that attempting to leave England to travel outside the UK, or even being at an ’embarkation point’ with the purpose of leaving the UK, without a reasonable excuse could be punished with up to a £5,000 fine.
However, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall have jetted to Greece to celebrate the country’s 200th anniversary of independence at the request of the British Government following an invitation from the country’s prime minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
Discussing their travels, Susanna said: ‘The Prince of Wales says he’s delighted to be back.
‘They are there on a two-day trip to celebrate the bicentenary of Greece’s independence. Lovely trip for them.’
She continued: ‘They are doing their international duty but an interesting time to do it when the country has been told there will be a £5,000 if they go away.

‘One for rule them and one for others. Everyone else is being told summer holidays are unlikely.’
The Duke of Edinburgh was born a prince of Greece and Denmark, allegedly on the kitchen table of his family home, Mon Repos, on the Greek island of Corfu, in 1921.
Speaking at the dinner, which had 45 guests in total and was hosted by Ms Sakellaropoulou, Charles said: ‘My wife and I could not be more delighted to be back in Greece, which has long held the most special place in my heart.
‘After all, Greece is the land of my grandfather; and of my father’s birth, nearly one hundred years ago, in the centenary year of Greek Independence.’
He continued: ‘Later, it was in Athens that my dear grandmother, Princess Alice, during the dark years of Nazi occupation, sheltered a Jewish family – an act for which in Israel she is counted as Righteous Among The Nations.’
Greece is aiming to reopen its borders to foreign tourists from May 14.
Visitors will be required to have been vaccinated, had a recent negative Covid-19 test or have coronavirus antibodies.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
