Quiet king! After the pomp and circumstance of last weekend’s coronation, Charles drives himself to the church in Sandringham (but gets a lift home)
Just over a week after more than 2,000 people watched the king crowned in Westminster Abbey, King Charles III showed he is nothing but a modern monarch when he drove himself to church in Norfolk this morning.
Charles was spotted behind the wheel waving cheerily to well-wishers as he drove to St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, Norfolk.
Dressed in a smart gray suit, the King looked jovial as he navigated the roads of Norfolk in a motorcade – with dozens of well-wishers lining the streets to catch a glimpse of him.
After the service, the King was seen in the same royal car being driven back to Sandringham by a person for personal protection.
