Prince and Princess of Wales greet royal fans in Windsor


The Prince and Princess of Wales have delighted fans, taking a stroll along the Long Walk at Windsor Castle, ahead of tonight’s Coronation Concert.

The royals chatted and shook hands with the public on the tree-lined avenue, which was created during the reign of Charles II.

The couple were dressed casually, with Prince William wearing an open necked light blue shirt and dark suit, and Kate opting for a pale blue blazer, white T-shirt, black trousers and white trainers.

At one point, Prince William was handed a drink in a paper cup, as well as a bottle of gin.

Their walkabout followed a Big Lunch on the Long Walk, with picnickers bringing tables, chairs, and blankets to enjoy an al fresco snack and drink.

Following Saturday’s historic coronation, celebrations have continued into Sunday, with Big Lunches attended by royals around the UK and thousands of street parties.

Monday will round off the coronation weekend, with the Big Help Out, encouraging people to help out in their local communities.

King Charles III became heir apparent at the age of three, holding that title for 70 years – longer than anyone else – before fulfilling his destiny following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, in September last year.

This weekend he was crowned King, alongside Camilla who was crowned Queen, at Westminster Abbey in front of around 2,300 guests including world leaders, celebrities, UK politicians, foreign royalty, everyday heroes and the royal family.
