LONDON (AP) — King Charles III and his wife Camilla, the queen consort, have visited Scotland in their first joint public engagement since the royal mourning period to remember Queen Elizabeth II ended. Hundreds turned out on the streets of Dunfermline in Fife, north of Edinburgh, hoping to get a glimpse of the new monarch. The royal couple were visiting to formally give city status to Dunfermline, the birthplace of another King Charles. Charles I, who reigned in the 17th century before his execution, was the last British monarch born in Scotland. In a speech, Charles referred to how much his late mother loved Scotland. Later Monday, Charles and Camilla will host a reception for around 300 guests at Edinburgh to celebrate the British South Asian community.
