Getting the people the Prince would be meeting and greeting into a line for him to go down and shake hands with, they are understood to have made the remarkable comment.

King Charles’ fingers have often been a source of fascination, with speculation having circled for years.

Following ascension to the throne, Dr Gareth Nye explained to the Daily Star what he thought the likely reason for their enlarged appearance was.

He explained how “loads of conditions” could be behind the swelling.

“Oedema is a condition where the body starts to retain fluids in the limbs, normally the legs and ankles but also in the fingers which causes them to swell.

"Oedema is a common condition and mostly affects people over the age of 65 as the ability for fluid control is restricted,” he added.

He also reckoned another possibility could be arthritis.

Dr Nye said: "Arthritis another common condition in the over 60s. It often affects three main areas in the hand the thumb joint or either joints in the fingers.

"Fingers usually become stiff, painful and swollen and although medication can help with the pain, the swelling can remain.

"Uncommon causes may include high salt diet leading to fluid retention, certain medications can rarely lead to swelling as a side effect such as with blood pressure medications or steroid medications."
