King smiles on visit to Queen Elizabeth II’s favourite horse show as he resumes public duties

King Charles III smiled as he visited the Royal Windsor Horse Show on Friday, 3 May, an event that was a firm favourite of his mother Queen Elizabeth II.

His Majesty received a hug from niece Zara Tindall as he made his third public visit of the week to tour the popular equestrian attraction.

It comes after he resumed public duties this week following his cancer diagnosis earlier this year, indicating the positive effect of his treatment.

The late Queen was a passionate fan of the event staged on her doorstep close to Windsor Castle, making frequent appearances among the stalls dressed informally and wearing a headscarf.
