King Charles was in good spirits as he and Queen Camilla attended a Sunday service at Crathie Kirk, near Balmoral.

His Majesty recently announced that he plans to attend the five-day Royal Ascot this summer, despite his ongoing battle with cancer. It is said that the king wants to attend to honor the late queen, who missed only one of the races during her 70 years on the throne.

Despite being diagnosed with an unknown form of cancer in February, the king has made a number of public appearances. After the shock diagnosis, he renounced most of his public duties. However, he has continued to read his daily red boxes and his weekly audience with Number 10.

The King is expected to ‘step up’ his public appearances in the coming weeks

A few days ago he was spotted waving from his Bentley limousine to fans and tourists as they gathered outside Clarence House. Royal onlookers took photos of the monarch as he passed them in his maroon car. Many looked happy as they caught a glimpse of King Charles going about his daily duties.

King Charles is expected to “step up his schedule” in the coming weeks. An insider previously told the Mail: “The idea of ​​a locked-up monarch would not work these days and will only lead to damaging speculation about His Majesty’s health.”

Earlier this month, an expert said the king’s “delighted” and “affectionate” public gestures have indicated what he is really thinking as he tries to remain visible during his cancer treatment.

In photos taken today and in previous weeks, the king appears happy and smiling during these short rides, offering waves to the crowds of tourists. And despite the short performances, body language expert Judi James believes this shows there appears to be a “whole new, blossoming love affair between Charles and his audience since his cancer diagnosis”.

Judi explained to the Mirror: “Charles has never been a populist royal and at times the ties between himself and the public were at breaking point. The son and husband of two of the world’s most famous and adored women, Charles divorced Diana, upset his mother and married one of the world’s most controversial and at one time most unpopular women.
