King Charles greeted the public after Easter service on Sunday in his first major public appearance since his cancer diagnosis.

His Majesty was welcomed with applause as he and Queen Camilla greeted the crowds outside St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle after the Easter service.

Onlookers said he “looked good” and was “in high spirits.”

The King even told the crowd: “I’m doing my best.”

When the crowd told him, “Happy Easter,” the King responded: “And to you.”

About the impromptu walkabout, a Buckingham Palace source told The Telegraph that doctors changed their recommendations for the King and the Easter service after His Majesty responded “very encouragingly” to his cancer treatment.

King Charles and Queen Camilla were joined at St George’s Chapel for Easter by the Princess Royal and her husband Sir Timothy Laurence, the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, the Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York.

The King, 75, has continued royal duties since his cancer diagnosis and announcement that he is undergoing treatment but they have all been in private. This was the first public engagement since January for King Charles.
