King Charles has been photographed braving the rain as he shielded himself under an umbrella while strolling through Sandringham on Sunday 23 October.

The monarch, 73, who is set for his second Prime Minister after the resignation of Liz Truss, walked through his Norfolk estate this morning to attend Sunday service.

Charles looked dapper in a grey suit, underneath which he donned a lilac shirt and a deep purple tie. Matching his shirt, he placed a lilac lapel in his breast pocket for the occasion.

He donned a pair of brown suede-style shoes for the outing and carried a smart umbrella with a wooden handle, which he inevitable used to hide from the rain during his walk.

The King was accompanied by a woman, who appeared to be Queen Consort Camilla, 75, who donned a dark jacket on top of a tartan skirt and brown suede-like knee-high boots.

She completed the look with a black hat, a brown leather and blue crossbody bag and an umbrella of her own.

Charles arrived to Sandringham, where he's spent countless Christmases with his family, on Thursday 20 October, with it being his first visit back since the death of his mother Queen Elizabeth II on 8 September.

Queen Elizabeth passed away at the age of 96, just months after nationwide celebrations for her Platinum Jubilee.

The Royal Family's Twitter account and official website broke the news, before it was announced on multiple TV channels.

At the time, the tweet, which featured a picture of the monarch, simply read: "The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow."

Queen Elizabeth died at Balmoral, where she traditionally spends August to October every year.

Following her death, Charles paid a heartbreaking tribute, expressing his "greatest sadness" at the loss of his mum.

Sharing his grief across social media, under the official handle Clarence House, he told his legion of Royal fans: "The death of my beloved Mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family.

"We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished Sovereign and a much-loved Mother.

"I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.”

Charles, who was recently greeted by flag-waving schoolchildren during a royal engagement, added: "During this period of mourning and change, my family and I will be comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which The Queen was so widely held."
