Arthur and his teammates live together, which explains how they kept up with the race during the pandemic. They were the only team to participate this year due to the coronavirus outbreak that kept other teams from participating.

Today's success was the end of 38 days away from home and the young royal descendant was delighted to be reunited with his mother, Lady Sarah Chatto, his father Lord Daniel and his 24 year old brother Samuel.

His friend Lizzie Friend, who wore a white mask, was also waiting for him on the dock and hugged him tenderly

The Exe Endurow team contested the race despite the only participants. The University of Exeter students were allowed to take action to continue the race prep training they had prepared for six months ago.

In June they published on their official Exe endurow Instagram: “We hope that you are all safe during the coronavirus pandemic.

& # 39; We are still planning to row despite a change in COVID conditions in the UK.

"Of course we are late, but we are working hard to prepare for the row."

& # 39; Because of the situation, we have also decided to raise money for the British Red Cross and JustOneOcean because we want to do everything we can in a challenging time for our nation and our oceans. & # 39;

The royal had been training for the series for the past six months, and had trained at the gym for the first time, only to get fit again in January.

The team, which includes Arthur, Harry Lidgley and Oliver Dawe-Lane alongside Charles Bromhead, originally intended to raise funds for Just One Ocean, but said the coronavirus pandemic inspired them to help the British Red Cross as well .
