King Charles, 74, had been temporarily steered away from the crowds outside Luton Town Hall by his security staff shortly after arriving.

The King then resumed shaking hands with members of the public after being moved to a different area.

The monarch is in Luton for a series of visits, which has seen him stop by Luton Town Hall and the newly-built Guru Nanak Gurdwara.

Charles appeared in good spirits as he arrived where he smiled as he met community leaders and voluntary organisations.

The King, who had a plaster on his left thumb, removed his shoes and put on a Ramaal headscarf in the Sikh temple, where he made a namaste gesture as he greeted people.

He bowed in front of the Sikh holy book, Guru Granth Sahib, and sat cross-legged on the floor, wearing an orange scarf over his suit.

He was then invited to unveil a plaque to mark the official opening of the Gurdwara.

The plaque included Tuesday’s date, and Charles joked that it was a good job he “turned up on the right day”.

He was greeted by the Lord Lieutenant of Bedfordshire, Susan Lousada, and the mayor of Luton, Councillor Sameera Saleem, on arrival at the town hall before meeting local groups and members of the public.

It comes less than a month after Charles was pelted with four eggs in York by a man.

The protester was later identified as Patrick Thelwell, a 23-year-old who once stood as a Green Party candidate.

He was released on bail by North Yorkshire Police following the incident that saw all four eggs miss the target.
