Buckingham Palace released a new photo of King Charles III on Friday, including heartfelt tributes to the monarch’s late parents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.

The photo, taken on September 11, shows the king in an eighteenth-century room at Buckingham Palace. Charles is pictured looking at the red box, also known as the “dispatch box”, at his desk.

The distinctive briefcase, which is carried wherever the king is carried, contains documents from government ministers in the United Kingdom and representatives of the Commonwealth. (For anyone wanting to take a closer look at documents, the papers are blurry.)

Behind the king is a picture of his parents. According to the palace, the photograph, taken by Baron’s Studio, was given to Elizabeth’s father, King George VI, for Christmas in 1951. At the time, Elizabeth was still Princess Elizabeth (she became queen the following year at age 25).

Prince Philip passed away on April 9, 2021, at the age of 99, a few weeks before his 100th birthday. Queen Elizabeth died at the age of 96 on 8 September in Balmoral, Scotland. He ruled for 70 years and celebrated his platinum jubilee in June to mark his decades on the throne.

Charles ascended the throne shortly after his mother’s death, as did Elizabeth after her father’s death in 1952. Like his mother, Charles is likely to be coronated well after becoming emperor, both as a sign of respect and because of the time it takes to plan the event.

Although a date for Charles’s coronation ceremony has not been set, observers suspect it may take place in February 2023, which would be 70 years after his mother’s coronation at Westminster Abbey in 1953.

Royal families and world leaders from around the world attended the Queen’s state funeral on 19 September, which was also held at Westminster Abbey. The abbey was of great importance to the late sovereign – she also married Philip in 1947.

The period of royal mourning is until the following Monday, September 26.

Prince William, the clear heir to the throne, remembered his beloved “Granny” on Wednesday by giving a virtual address to New York City summit attendees on behalf of his environmental awards, called The Earthshot Awards.

The Prince of Wales was supposed to attend the event in person, but was canceled due to the death of his grandmother.

William said, “During this time of grief, I am greatly comforted by your continued enthusiasm, optimism and commitment to The Earthshot Prize and what we are trying to achieve.” “Protecting the environment was very close to my grandmother’s heart, and I know she must have been glad to hear about this incident.”
