The Prince of Wales has likened Vladmir Putin to Adolf Hitler in an extraordinary break in royal protocol.

Prince Charles made the unguarded comments while relaying his sympathies to a woman, who had lost relatives to the Nazis during the Holocaust.

‘And now Putin is doing just about the same as Hitler’, he told the unnamed woman in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

The remark is likely to be seen as a criticism of the west’s lack of intervention over the Russian president’s power grab in Crimea.

The annexation of the Ukrainian province is the first such power grab since the war in 1945.

Prince Charles is scheduled to meet the Russian President on June 6 for the D-Day commemorations in France.

Both Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall arrived in Halifax on Sunday during a four-day tour of Canada.
