The pair appeared to be the ultimate cake cutting double act as they held the knife together and looked at one another with a smile and a giggle. 

After managing to cut a slice, the new monarch proudly waved his knife in the air as their audience applauded. 

Queen Consort Camilla wrapped up warm for the chilly day out, looking chic in a white Fiona Claire coat that she also sported to Kate Middleton's Together At Christmas carol concert in December. 

Camilla also looked toasty in her go-to beige Lock & Co. faux fur hat and Russell and Bromley heeled boots.
