King Charles was all smiles and in good spirit as he stepped out in London to have some fun taking time out from his busy diary amid cancer battle.

The 75-year-old enjoyed the moments with the cast of a special Gala performance, on the day of an event celebrating Antonio Pappano's 22 years as Music Director at the Royal Opera House on Thursday in London.

The King could not stop himself as he made delightful performance while celebrating the moments with the people around him.

Pappano conducted the Coronation Orchestra at the crowning of King Charles and Queen Camilla at Westminster Abbey in May 2023, and Thursday night's tribute saluted his 22-year tenure as music director of the Royal Opera House.

Before the King's appearance, the evening of entertainment featured performances by opera artists and musicians Aigul Akhmetshina, Jonas Kaufmann, Sir Bryn Terfel (who performed at the Coronation Concert in Windsor last year), the Royal Opera Chorus and the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House. 

When the special show came to a close, King Charles joined Pappano on stage and met some of the performers, leaving ever one gushing with his stunning gesture.

Pappano became a Commander of the Royal Victorian Order in the latest New Year Honours list for conducting the Coronation Orchestra, and it was significant for the King to be at the Gala performance held in his honour.
