Local photographer, Jane Smith, was shocked to discover an incredibly rare moment while going through her latest batch of photographs. Amongst her images of wildflowers and local buildings, Jane stumbled upon a candid shot of King Charles and the Loch Ness Monster sharing a cup of tea together.
The photograph is making waves across the country, with many conspiracy theorists coming out of the woodwork to mull over the possible implications of such an encounter, while others have simply declared the photo as "bloody brilliant."
One local resident, Sharon Johnson, had this to say about the discovery: "I always knew King Charles had some wild stories, but I never thought I'd see him sipping tea with Nessie! This just goes to show that anything is possible in this world."
When asked about the encounter, King Charles simply shrugged and said: "You never know who you'll bump into while taking a stroll around the loch. It's just all part and parcel of being royalty, really."
As for Nessie, she declined to comment and simply retreated back into the murky depths of the loch, leaving all of us to ponder over the possibilities of her friendship with the monarchy.
Whether you believe the photograph to be real or fake, one thing is for certain: it's sure to be the talk of the town for quite some time. Who knows what other secrets await us in the deep, dark waters of Scotland's most famous loch?
