King Charles III has made his first public appearance since the release of Prince Harry’s memoir Spare. The King arrived in Aberdeenshire today for a public engagement at the Aboyne and Mid-Deeside Community Shed. The seemingly unfazed monarch beamed as he greeted crowds ahead of a tour around the organisation’s new facilities.

The charity-centred visit will see the King watch men who gather at the centre each week while they participate in wood and stone crafting.

He also plans to meet other local hardship support groups, voluntary groups and food bank organisers.

Groups he will meet with include the Inverurie-based Aberdeenshire North Foodbank, Gordon Rural Action and Young at Heart Deeside.

His appearance follows the release of his son’s tell-all book on Tuesday, January 10.

Prince Harry’s memoir, now the fastest-selling non-fiction book in history, made several uncomfortable claims about the Royal Family.

While the King was portrayed sympathetically in the book, passages about the King’s wife Camilla, the Queen Consort, were less forgiving.

The Prince presented conflicting viewpoints on his stepmother, both condemning her actions and expressing affection towards her.

At one point in the book, he accuses her of courting the tabloid press.
