They went up to speak to school friends Dion English, Sue Watson, and Lorraine Ramney, 54.

The Prince even tried some of Dion’s Purple Reign gin, which he then told Kate to try, and snuck off with one of their Return of the King beers.

Dion said: “I feel amazing that he tried my gin. He said it was very nice and he said ‘Kate, try this’.

“He took the Return of the King beer and said he’s going to ask his dad if he’s tried it.”

Lorraine added: “It was lovely of them to come over. They were lovely. Very friendly.”

Sue said: “They were asking us about why we were here.

“We wanted to be here to celebrate the coronation.

“I wasn’t expecting this at all though. It was lovely, really lovely.”

More than 3,700 lunch parties took place to mark King Charles III's coronation.

The new monarch was officially crowned yesterday in a lavish ceremony in front of the world.

More than 18million Brits tuned in to see the new reigning royals at Westminster Abbey before they led a procession back to Buckingham Palace where they made a balcony appearance.

Thousands of fans cheered them from below as Charles and Camilla stood side by side donning their crowns and full regalia.

A spokesperson for the palace has today said the couple were "deeply touched" and "profoundly grateful" by the country's support.

They said: "Their Majesties were deeply touched by the events of yesterday and profoundly grateful both to all those who helped to make it such a glorious occasion – and to the very many who turned out to show their support in such numbers in London and further afield."
