King Charles III, the 74-year-old British monarch, stepped out in Norfolk on January 15 to attend a church service and greet well-wishers near the Sandringham Estate.

While his outfit was typical of a royal, with a suit and tie covered by a long jacket, he added a unique and playful touch: a pink tie featuring blue dinosaurs.

Online reactions to the King’s tie were mixed, with some praising the “wonderful tie”. “Just when I thought King Charles couldn’t get any cooler,” wrote one Twitter user. Another said, “It’s charming.”

Others were not so kind towards Charles and his tie, with one Twitter user writing, “Dinosaur wearing dinosaurs.” Another added, “You are what you wear.”

Regardless of the mixed reactions, King Charles III has definitely made a fashion statement with his choice of accessory; the unexpected touch of a dinosaur-patterned tie adds a fun element to his otherwise traditional outfit, showing that even royalty can have a sense of humour.

Charles’ appearance at the church marked his second official outing since his son, Prince Harry’s controversial memoir Spare was released.

The King’s first official outing since Harry’s book hit stores was on January 12 in Scotland. While there, he visited the Aboyne and Mid Deeside Community Shed, a community building that aims to combat rural isolation.

On both official outings, Charles seemed in high spirits and obviously made no comment about the revelations Harry made about the royal family in Spare.
