Prince Charles has been in the region to visit military patients at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.
Staff and patients gathered to catch a glimpse of the Prince before he went to the military ward to carry out private visits.
He comes every year just before Christmas, bringing presents for servicemen and women injured in Afghanistan. Hospital staff say his visits help to boost morale.
