King Charles III was all smiles as he stepped out for his first public appearance since the publication of Harry’s book.

King Charles III makes first public appearance since Spare

He was also there to meet local hardship support groups.

The King, wearing a tweed jacket and kilt, appeared to be in good spirits as he met royal fans at the site.

Charles was even laughing and joking with them – a surprise considering his son’s damning book only came out the other day.

Charles writes Harry out of Coronation plans?

The King’s appearance comes just days after it was reported that he had written Prince Harry out of his coronation plans.

According to the Sunday Times, the Duke of Sussex has been omitted from coronation plans by his dad.

“Prince Harry has been written out of the script for the coronation, with no official role in the service if he attends,” the paper’s royal editor said.

Another source said: “As things stand, there is no role for Harry in the service.”

However, another source claims Harry will end up attending.

“It is an important moment for Harry’s father and he would want to show his respect,” they claimed.
