• King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla greeted well-wishers outside their Scottish residence Sunday
  • The outing marked their first church attendance since the end of royal mourning for Queen Elizabeth II
  • The royal couple has been staying at their Birkhall residence for two weeks

King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla have attended church at Balmoral for the first time since the the official mourning period for Queen Elizabeth II ended on Sept. 26. Photos of them during the Sunday outing show the royal couple smiling and waving at the crowd who lined up on the streets to greet them.

The new monarch and his wife flew to Scotland following the burial of Queen Elizabeth II. In honor of the late queen's traditions, they attended Sunday service at Crathie Church in the Scottish estate, marking their first since Her Majesty had been laid to rest.

Photos of the pair traveling in their Rolls Royce quickly made rounds online. They showed the king smartly dressed in a tweed jacket with a green and red-striped tie. He looked relaxed and composed as he greeted the well-wishers assembled outside their Birkhall residence.

Queen Consort Camilla, on the other hand, chose a more subtle look for the outing with her tartan-collared navy coat and feathered red beret hat. She completed her look with a pair of pearl earrings and a necklace.

King Charles III and his wife were also spotted driving to the same church in Scotland on Sept. 25, as the royal mourning period for Queen Elizabeth continued before officially ending the following day. They were both dressed in black during the outing, with the queen consort covering her legs with a grey and black plaid blanket.

The royal couple has been in Scotland for two weeks. They headed north on Sept. 20, the day after the late monarch's state funeral at Westminster Abbey and committal service at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Their trip to Crathie Church, the royal family's go-to church when in Scotland, is a continuation of one of Queen Elizabeth II's most cherished traditions. When she was alive, the late queen regularly attended church services at the church when staying at Balmoral Castle, where she died peacefully on Sept. 8.

Meanwhile, King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla have been staying at Birkhall, their Scottish residence, since Queen Elizabeth's funeral. The new monarch previously described the place as "a unique haven of coziness and character."
