Royal commentator Cameron Walker believes King Charles “very much wants to reach out to real people.” Mr Walker argues that the monarch has had more experience than his mother, the late Queen with meeting with everyday Britons given Charles’ Royal Navy and public school background. 

Mr Walker told Daily Express’ Royal Round-Up host Pandora Forsyth: “I think the monarchy survives because it isn’t political and I think King Charles is very much aware of that.

“And like you said, he is very much at ease with the public. You see him on walkabout, he’s chatting to people, he’s making jokes with people and the people clearly love him in return and yes, his mother, the late Queen did that.

‘But like you said, they’re from two separate generations. The Queen didn’t even go to school, She was homeschooled.

“Whereas King Charles went to Gordonstoun and went into the Royal Navy.

“So he’s had a lot more experience with real people.

“And I think that’s in this more kind of modern monarchy, which he is clearly pursuing is something that we will see him continue to do.

“I think he very much wants to reach out to real people, and therefore be more relevant to ordinary Brits up and down the country.”

The King and his Queen Consort are to hold their first joint public engagements since royal mourning ended by visiting Dunfermline to mark the former town becoming a city.

King Charles and Camilla will attend an official council meeting at the City Chambers next Monday and visit Dunfermline Abbey in celebration of the metropolis’ new status.

During the day the King and his wife will also host a reception at Edinburgh’s Palace of Holyroodhouse to celebrate British South Asian communities.

Eight places were made cities, as part of celebrations marking the 70-year reign of the late monarch, after successfully bidding for the honour under the Platinum Jubilee Civic Honours Competition.

The settlements were asked to highlight their royal associations, as well as showcase their communities and local identity.

At Holyroodhouse the King and Queen Consort will host a reception in the great gallery where they will meet between 200-300 guests of British Indian, Pakistani, Bangladesh, Sri Lankan, Nepalese, Bhutanese and Maldivian heritage from across the UK.
