Ant and Dec dodge handshake from Prince Charles due to coronavirus fear

Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly were caught on camera during the awkward moment they dodged a handshake with Prince Charles.

Due to coronavirus terror, Prince Charles was forgoing his usual handshake in favour of a Namaste gesture to avoid physical contact.

The photos taken at the Prince's Trust Awards 2020 show all three parties looking a little sheepish as they get used to the new greeting.

HRH was also pictured chatting to music star Craig David on the red carpet as he mingled with guests.

Other celebs in attendance included TOWIE royalty Gemma Collins, who looked stunning and slimmed down in a slinky black gown .

She showed off her new shorter hairdo with a bouncy blow dry with a towering quiff expertly coiffed.

Also in attendance was actor Pierce Brosnan, sporting some fancy new facial hair and a baby blue suit.

He was also pictured clasping his hands in greeting to the Prince, next to actress Anna Friel.

Ronnie Wood also greeted the Prince with the same, and was pictured chatting with the royal.

He brought his wife Sally Wood with him to the awards, which recognise the achievements of young people.

Not wanting to take any chance, actor Richard E Grant was spotted wearing gloves so as to not spread or pick up the virus, which can be potentially deadly.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry was spotted yesterday elbow bumping Craig David at a Commonwealth service in Westminster Abbey.

The pair looked extremely pleased to see each other, but intentionally avoided shaking hands.

Instead Harry, 35 first leaned in to offer his elbow and the Fill Me In singer, 38, happily obliged, bouncing his elbow off the Royal's.

Harry and Craig, who looked dapper in a slick black suite shirt and tie, then spent a few minutes chatting animatedly and looked deeply engrossed in conversation, as the royal family met guests.

Behind them, Alexandra Burke could be seen chatting passionately to Meghan Markle .

The opening to the service saw very few handshakes exchanged, with confirmed cases in the UK now standing at 321.
