Leading British figures including former prime minister Gordon Brown have praised King Charles’ ability with people and say that will help him in his new role.
Charles shows signs of being an open and informal King
He is the King destined to be seen as an open and informal monarch, with kisses from members of the public and an ease with speaking from the heart.
Charles has always looked comfortable during a walkabout, chatting to people with a story to tell or those simply eager to meet a prince and heir to the throne.
Now the man who has been a king-in-waiting for decades will be keen to settle into his reign and make the role his own.
There are already signs that Charles’s style will be one that focuses on interaction with the public and does not shy away from emotion.
