King Charles III and his wife, Queen Consort Camilla, made their first joint royal appearance following the debut of Prince Harry’s autobiography “Spare.”
Charles and Camilla dressed up in warm coats to tour the North West England region of Manchester.
Thousands of people waited outside Bolton Town Hall for a chance to see the King and Queen Consort before heading inside to meet local leaders.
Their trip north together marked the couple’s first public outing since Harry revealed even more about his break with the royals nearly two years after he made the decision to cut himself off from the family.

The royals shook hands with supporters on a walk before attending the gathering.
“I was in shock when he shook my hand. He asked us if we had missed lunch,” a local student told People magazine. “They are both very affectionate and kind.”

Another supporter bragged about the “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” to meet the king. “He had to talk to a lot of people, but he shook hands and talked to everyone he could,” he said.
Her Majesty also had the opportunity to visit the Kellogg factory in Manchester, which is not only the largest cereal production facility in Europe, but also the largest corn flakes factory in the world.
The royal family recently began making public appearances again since the release of Harry’s book on January 10.
In the tome, the Duke of Sussex claimed that he and Prince William begged their father not to marry Camilla. King Charles and Camilla were in a relationship for decades, even when Charles was married to the late Princess Diana.
“She was the villain. She was the third person in her marriage,” Harry told Anderson Cooper while promoting the book. “She needed to rehabilitate her image.”

Harry also wrote in his book that from the beginning of his relationship with Meghan Markle, her family was as skeptical of the American actress as the British press.
After Harry tried to set the tone and issued a statement condemning the tabloids’ coverage of their relationship, William was furious with his brother. When Meghan and Harry were awarded the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, it all boiled over and William reportedly became physically violent towards Harry.
The Palace has yet to rule on the allegations in Prince Harry’s book that hit shelves shortly after Netflix’s shocking docu-series “Harry and Meghan.”
