Charles III Looks Towards the Future at the Royal Windsor Horse Show

Charles III made his presence felt at the Royal Windsor Horse Show, thus respecting a tradition dear to his late mother, Queen Elizabeth II. This event, located near the royal residence of Windsor, is a must in the British social and equestrian calendar.

The king immersed himself in the festivities, enjoying the show jumping and demonstrations by the royal guard. The sovereign was approachable, not hesitating to take selfies with participants, always responding with amiability.

May 6, the anniversary of his coronation, was an opportunity to look back on a year of reign that began with a ceremony at Westminster Abbey. Followed by a reception on the balcony of Buckingham, he greeted the crowd alongside his wife Queen Camilla.

His first state visit to France, where he was welcomed by the presidential couple last September, went rather well. This visit concluded with a banquet in the majestic Hall of Mirrors at Versailles.

In November, commitments continued with a state visit to Kenya and the opening of the British Parliament. However, his early reign was overshadowed by the king’s cancer. Despite a discreet convalescence, the king recently resumed his official duties with renewed optimism.
