The new British royal couple has appeared in public for the first time since Queen Elizabeth II’s period of royal mourning ended. Charles, dressed in typical forts, and his wife Camilla were received by Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon in Dunfermline, Scotland, on Monday. Dunfermline was granted a town charter this year along with several other British towns to commemorate the Queen’s 70th birth anniversary.
The royal couple was greeted happily on the streets by many spectators who did not want to miss the visit of the new king. He shook several hands, shook hands towards the crowd and exchanged a few words with the attendees.
It is the royal couple’s first official visit since the end of the royal mourning phase, which lasted more than a week from the ten-day national mourning until the monarch’s funeral. Charles, 73, spent time after a funeral service at his country home in Scotland. Like her mother, she is known to be a great lover of the northernmost part of Britain.
Charles and Camilla wanted to visit a medieval church in Dunfermline, about 30 km northwest of Edinburgh, where many of Scotland’s previous kings were buried. A reception was later held at Holyrood Palace, the royal residence of Scotland, attended by representatives of Indian, Pakistani and other Asian communities living in Britain.
