King Charles looked sharp in a navy suit as he visited the Royal Courts of Justice this afternoon.
The monarch, 74, paid a visit to the Courts, located on The Strand in central London, to recognise the work of the judiciary and its constitutional commitment to the rule of law.
As he walked the grand halls of the building, the King looked deep in conversation with officials who showed him around.
His visit, which honoured the relationship between the judiciary and the Crown, follows many similar trips paid to the Courts by Charles’s mother, Queen Elizabeth, during her reign.
In 1968, she visited the Royal Courts of Justice to open The Queen’s Building; and in September 2011 she opened the Rolls Building.

On arrival, King Charles was introduced to the Lady Chief Justice of England and Wales, The Right Honourable the Baroness Carr of Walton-on-the-Hill and members of the judiciary.
He also viewed an exhibition in the Great Hall which celebrates Pioneering Women Judges. The exhibition was created in 2022 to mark the centenary of the first woman at the Bar and celebrates women who have been trailblazers and whose pioneering legal careers have helped women progress in the judiciary.

The charity also encourages under-represented schools to take part in the competition process to help introduce students to the legal profession.
At the end of his visit, King charles joined a reception in the Painted Room within the Royal Courts of Justice where he met voluntary magistrates who give up their time to support the justice system.
