King Charles III has been given a a slice of good luck during his walkabout of Northern Ireland.
Having arrived in the outside Hillsborough Castle just an hour ago, the new Monarch was meeting and greeting well-wishers within minutes.
And one of the first things thrust into his face was a familiar site.

Someone in the crowd had managed to push their way to the front – and brought a corgi with them.
Financial Times journalist Jude Webber tweeted that the cute dog was actually called Connie.
And it appeared to like the King as she was shown licking him.
One fan of the dog tweeted: “King Charles getting licked by someone’s pet corgi during Northern Ireland visit walkabout (is) probably a good omen.”
And another wrote: “What a good King (and Queen Camilla) we have, he has shown compassion and dignity at the most difficult time for himself and his family (sic).
“The Late Queen will be very proud.”

The King has grown up around Corgis, as it was his mother's favourite breed.
Before she died, she had two corgis named Sandy and Muick, and a dorgi – a cross between a dachshund and a corgi.
She also had a cocker spaniel.
It has been confirmed that the dogs are being given to her other son, Prince Andrew.
An insider said: “It's fascinating – Charles is now King, Camilla is Queen Consort, William and Kate, the Prince and Princess of Wales.

“As for Andrew, there is no new title and apparently no way back into the fold. Instead, he just gets the dogs.
“At least he's got plenty of time on his hands after stepping back from Royal duties amid the controversy surrounding his friendship with paedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.
“He's been spending most of it horse riding but will now be able to get out for walks with the dogs too.”
This could be Andrew's only ties to the Royal Family after the funeral, too.
According to royal author Robert Jobson, he will not be returning to the family any time soon – despite being seen with Prince William and others on the day the Queen died.
