King Charles releases new coronation photo alongside William and George | British News
The king has celebrated his coronation with a new photo of himself and his two heirs.
The picture released on Friday night shows Charles between Prince William and Prince George – Britain’s next two kings.
It was recorded in Buckingham Palace’s Throne Room on May 6 – the day Charles was crowned.
The 1902 pair of throne chairs seen in the photograph were made for the future King George V and Queen Mary.
They were used at the coronation of King Edward VII and also in the background of the coronation of King George VI. used in 1937.
Charles and Queen Camilla used the thrones in Westminster Hall last year to receive addresses from both houses of Parliament.
The king wears the robes and the imperial state crown and holds the orb and the scepter of the ruler with a cross in his hand.
Another picture was released on Friday showing Charles and Camilla with their page honours, and ladies present.
Also taken in the Throne Room of Buckingham Palace on the day of the coronation, the King once again wears his robes and the Imperial State Crown.
In the picture, the queen is depicted with the crown of Queen Mary and the probate robe.
This photo shows a smiling Prince George with Camilla’s grandchildren – Freddy Parker Bowles, Gus Lopes, Louis Lopes and grand-nephew Arthur Elliot.
Next to Queen Camilla is her sister Annabel Elliot, and next to the King is the Marchioness of Landsdowne – who was appointed to the royal household as Queen’s companion in 2022.
The remaining three Pages of Honour, Ralph Tollemache, Lord Oliver Cholmondeley and Nicholas Barclay are on the far left of the photograph.
The photos were taken by Hugh Burnard, who also took Charles and Camilla’s wedding photos in 2005.
