King Charles and Queen Consort arrive in Harrow to visit community kitchen

The King and Queen Consort paid a visit to Harrow today and were greeted by cheers from members of the local community.

King Charles was seen as he visited London’s Community Kitchen in Wealdstone, based next to Harrow Leisure Centre.

Whilst greeting the crowds outside and meeting members of the community, the pair also got to meet a group of pupils from Priestmead Primary School in Harrow. His Majesty King Charles III was in high spirits as he and The Queen Consort headed to London’s Community Kitchen.

Posting about their Harrow visit on social media, The Royal Family said: “London Community Kitchen, founded in 2014, works with vulnerable communities across London and is supported by a network of dedicated volunteers.

“It distributes up to 60 tonnes of surplus food to local communities serving over 10,000 people every week from its hub in Harrow.”

Harrow resident David Parkes told Harrow Online: “What an honour it was to see The King in Harrow today! After such a tough year for the Royals, it’s so nice to see them making an effort to thank members of local communities, and seeing them today is maybe the highlight of my whole year.”

Following their trip to Wealdstone, The King and Queen Consort will join the Prince and Princess of Wales and others for a carol service being held at Westminster Abbey.
