King Charles, Camilla honour people in Northern Ireland
King Charles and Queen Camilla treated people in Northern Ireland to a tea and cake party in the grounds of Hillsborough Castle on Wednesday.
The royal couple arrived in Belfast, their first visit to Northern Ireland since their official coronation earlier this month.
“Guests from across Northern Ireland gathered in the grounds of Hillsborough Castle this afternoon for tea and cake, hosted by the King and Queen,” according to the palace.
The inductees were selected for their exceptional work in the areas of youth, community, diversity and sustainability.
Earlier, King Charles and Camilla were greeted by hundreds of well-wishers in Newtownabbey, where they opened a new Coronation Garden.
King Charles also met Northern Ireland Secretary of State Chris Heaton-Harris during a visit to Hillsborough Castle in Hillsborough.
It is King Charles and Camilla’s first visit to Northern Ireland since they were anointed and crowned in Britain’s biggest ceremonial event in seven decades on May 6.
