The King debuted his new official 'King Charles III' tartan during the Braemar Gathering. "The green, blue and red tartan was designed by The Scottish Tartans Authority earlier this year," explained a post on the official Royal Family social media accounts.
It was designed, "in recognition of The King’s strong support in preserving the culture and traditions of Highland Dress and Scottish Tartans."
Attending the event alongside The King were his wife, Queen Camilla, and sister, Princess Anne. The pair also wore co-ordinating tartan looks in honour of the occasion.
Princess Anne added a bright red, double breasted coat and matching hat to her deep green tartan skirt, which features a narrow stripe of red.
Queen Camilla, on the other hand, wore a lighter green tartan skirt, while the lapels on her coat were trimmed in the same pattern. The Queen completed her look with an asymmetric hat featuring striped feathers across the brim.
Photographs from the event show the royals laughing and enjoying their day together as they witnessed various dancing, sport and musical performances, including bagpipe players.
Other images show The King chatting and shaking hands with contestants and attendees of the event, as well as being presented bouquets by young dancers
"The annual Braemar Gathering takes place on the first Saturday of September," according to the Royal Family. "While there have been similar Gatherings at Braemar since the days of King Malcolm Canmore 900 years ago, the Gathering has been run in its present form since 1832," and is regularly attended by members of the Royal Family.
