King Charles wears a kilt and enjoys a drink of whisky as he watches dancers at the Highland Games in Scotland | The Sun

THE King knocks back a dram of whisky as he watches dancers at the Mey Highland Games in Scotland.

Wearing his favourite kilt, Charles III looked suave in a pair of sunglasses as he enjoyed the traditional spectacle in John o' Groats.

The kilt – in Prince Charles Edward Stewart tartan – is the same one he wore to stand vigil at The Queen's coffin in Edinburgh last September.

The King topped off his look with a traditional leather Sporran, tweed waistcoat and jacket, red socks hiding a Sgian Dubhs knife, black shoes and a shepherds crook.

Arriving in a green Audi to the games on Saturday, The King greeted well-wishers before having a giggle with coaches and organisers.

He later took his seat under a tent where he took a sniff of whisky, presented in a traditional Nosing glass, before swigging it.

Charles was later seen soaking up the atmosphere as Highland Dancers performed to the bellowing sound of bagpipes.

The first Mey games were held in the village to celebrate Charles' grandmother's – the Queen Mother – 70th birthday.

It has been a fixture near John o' Groats, Wick, for over fifty years.

The King's appearance at the games comes as The Royal family take their annual summer holiday at Balmoral Castle.

He wore his Stewart Hunting green tartan kilt for the event where he inspected barrels and learnt about the distillery process.

The Royal Family usually spend around 10-weeks at Balmoral from June before returning to duties in September.
