Charles smiles at the service for the Order of the British Empire at St Paul's Cathedral today

King Charles continued his busy week of events by attending a service of dedication for the Order of the British Empire with Queen Camilla in London today.

The monarch and his wife walked up the steps of St Paul’s Cathedral for the event where they joined nearly 2,000 people who are holders of various royal honours.

It comes after Charles attended the unveiling of a new portrait at Buckingham Palace yesterday afternoon which followed a morning investiture at Windsor Castle.

And on Monday he officially handed over the role of Colonel-in-Chief of the Army Air Corps to his son Prince William on a visit to its base in Middle Wallop, Hampshire.

Charles has jumped back into public-facing royal duties in recent weeks after being given the all-clear to do so by doctors while his cancer treatment continues.

The Order of the British Empire (OBE) was established by King George V in 1917 to reward outstanding contributions to the First World War effort.

But the award now recognises the work of people from all walks of life with well-known honours such as MBEs and OBEs, as well as Knighthoods and Damehoods.

The King is the Sovereign of the OBE, and the Queen is the Grand Master of the OBE.

Almost 2,000 members who are holders of the Orders awards – including GBE, KBE, DBE, CBE, OBE, MBE and British Empire Medal – attended the service this morning.

The congregation was formed by people from all parts of the UK and Commonwealth and also included a number of honorary award holders.

Upon their arrival just before 11am today, Charles and Camilla were met at St Paul’s by the Lord Mayor of the City of London, Alderman Professor Michael Mainelli.

The couple were then escorted in where they were greeted by the Dean, the Chapter and officials of the Order, before taking their place in the processional order.
