King Charles III has returned to Buckingham Palace after saying his goodbyes to his mother, the late Queen Elizabeth II. His arrival was his first time entering the building as King, and he seemed to have been confused about which entrance to use.

Once he returned to London, on Friday, September 9, His Majesty shook hands with citizens and greeted them outside of the palace.

While the King walked around the perimeter of his lavish residence he looked at the flowers and notes left to honor the deceased matriarch outside of the building. While walking towards a gate with his wife, Queen Consort Camilla Parker Bowles, he was caught on camera looking towards the entrance and turning around to point to another.

The Duke of Cornwall was visibly confused by which entrance was appropriate for him to use after ascending the throne.

The royal commentator pointed out the rarity of someone in the King's position entering the estate on foot instead of in a vehicle. Traditionally members of the royal family enter the building in a motorcade or on horseback.
