Van Dyke – who’s only an Oscar away from elite EGOT status – accessorized the outfit with a black bag slung over his shoulder.

The Missouri native, who began his career as an entertainer on radio and television in the 1940s, wore his silver hair combed to the side and sported a bushy beard for the outing. 

Meanwhile his other half wore a burgundy long sleeve top with a green puffer vest, which she paired with black leggings.

Silver accessorized with a green purse and sported a pair of black sneakers with red socks.

She wore her brunette tresses pulled back into a casual bun, with a pair of glasses perched atop her head, and was seen leaving with a beverage in hand.

The couple first met when Silver was working as a make-up artist at the SAG Awards in 2005.

Van Dyke was 86 years old when he married the 40-year-old Silver back in late February 2012.

The actor recently revealed he was worried about the public perception of marrying a much younger woman. 

‘I thought there would be an outcry about a gold digger marrying an old man,’ Dick admitted to Closer Weekly in March. ‘But no one ever took that attitude.’ 

Van Dyke also credits Silver with his happiness and his vitality: ‘We share an attitude. She can go with the flow. She loves to sing and dance, which we do almost every day. She’s just delightful,’ the actor said.

Meanwhile his wife shares the sentiment, gushing about her husband: ‘He is the most perfect human being. I’ve never met anyone so happy, so genuine, so amazing. He’s just like a happy pill.’ 

Van Dyke was first married to the late Margie Willett from 1948 until 1984. Their marriage ended after a six-year separation.

The couple have four children, sons Christian and Barry and daughters Stacy and Carrie. 

He was then in a relationship with actress Michelle Triola Marvin for more than 30 years until her death in 2009 from lung cancer.

The proud family man also has five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Van Dyke is known for starring in the 1964 Disney classic Mary Poppins, where he had two roles: as Cockney chimney sweep Bert and as aged banker Mr. Dawes.

And just three years ago he put his mind and body to the test by doing his own dance routines for his cameo in the film Mary Poppins Returns (2018), which included a move where he jumped up onto a desk, without any special effects.

He is also famous for his memorable roles in The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961-66) and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968).

During his career, that spans more than seven decades, Van Dyke earned five Emmys, a Tony, a Grammy, a BAFTA, the SAG Lifetime Achievement Award, and induction into the Television Hall Of Fame, which was due in large part to his role as Rob Petrie in The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961-1966), as well as The New Dick Van Dyke Show (1971-1974) and The Carol Burnett Show (1977).
