After arriving at Buckingham Palace, the King greeted members of the public who had gathered to pay their respects to Elizabeth II and the new King.
Charles, 73, shook hands and thanked people who had kind words for him, but one royal fan was seen to be a little braver than the others. Jenny Assiminos, when the king gave her his hand, suddenly kissed him, writes people.com.
“I saw him in front of me. I couldn’t believe it and said to him, “Can I kiss you?” He said, ‘Well, yeah,’ so I hugged him and did it,” Mr. Assiminos said in an interview with CNN after his prank. “Thank you, God, for letting me see him and kiss him.”
Ms Assiminios, who is originally from Cyprus, told CNN she was a huge fan of the British family.
“I love the royal family,” she said. “I always watch them, buy souvenirs.”
“He looked sad,” Ms. Assiminios told CNN after seeing him outside the palace gates. “I told him, ‘I’m sorry for the loss.’
A royal fan has said her late husband had an affair with King Charles’ father, Prince Philip, who died in 2021. on April 9 at the age of 99.
“My late husband was from Greece,” she said. “And Prince Phillip is also from Greece.”
Mr Assiminios noted in the crowd that people were “rejoicing” at their new king even as they mourned the death of their beloved monarch.
“He is great. He’s perfect,” she said. “I’ve always liked him.”
