A very rare photo of Prince Charles and a special furry friend has surfaced.
The future King took a picture with an endangered red squirrel, which was found on his doorstep at Clarence House.
As a Patron of the Wildlife Trusts in the UK, Charles delighted fans by posing with the animal, a "rare sight" for many all over the country.
Back in 2014, Prince Charles visited the Glendelvine Squirrel Sanctuary in Scotland and is also patron of the Red Squirrel Survival Trust.
His love for the furry little creature, which is a protected animal due to habitat loss, also saw him build a safe enclosure in the Dumfries House woodlands earlier this year.
The outdoors is often the setting for many of Charles and Camilla's photographs, including snaps of the British Royal Family enjoying time at their Highgrove retreat, and their grandchildren enjoying time outdoors.
The AUD $30,000 shepherd's hut is now enjoyed by George, Charlotte and when he's old enough, Louis, and has a bed, wooden floors and wood burner.
