Mountain bikers "bump into" the King as he's out for a walk

These mountain bikers were enjoying a ride out in the cold and wet Scottish Highlands at the start of autumn when they bumped into King Charles III!

The group suspected there might be ‘minor royals’ out and about on the Balmoral estate after a fleet of black Land Rovers passed by. But none of them were expecting to meet the King himself out on a walk!

The King complained to the bikers about the notorious Highlands midges.

The group’s only regret: not asking the King to come and share a dram of whisky with them!

The King and Queen have been residing on their Balmoral estate in Aberdeenshire since August.
