King Charles appeared cheerful and in good spirits as he made an appearance at the Christmas market in Ealing Broadway shopping centre on Thursday amid Omid Scobie's Endgame racial remarks controversy.
Wearing an impressive coat paired with a shirt and a violet tie, the monarch engaged with local business owners and stallholders at the market.
During the visit, the 75-year-old King also received a festive endorsement from Santa Claus.
The monarch's reaction was a heartfelt smile in response to Santa's playful remarks.
The video capturing King Charles's festive market visit in London has been shared across the royal family's social media accounts.
