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

The photo, taken on September 11, shows the king in the 18th century room at Buckingham Palace. Charles is pictured at his desk looking at the red box, also known as the “shipping box”.

The distinctive briefcase, which is given to the King wherever he is, contains papers from United Kingdom government ministers and Commonwealth officials. (To the dismay of anyone looking to take a closer look at the documents, the papers are blurry.)

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

Prince Philip died aged 99 on April 9, 2021, just weeks before his 100th birthday. Queen Elizabeth died at the age of 96 on September 8 at Balmoral in Scotland. She reigned for 70 years and celebrated her platinum jubilee to mark her decades on the throne in June.

Charles ascended the throne immediately after his mother’s death, as Elizabeth did after her own father’s death in 1952. Like his mother’s, Charles’ coronation will likely take place long after he becomes monarch, both as a sign of respect and because of the weather. you have to plan the event.

Although no date for Charles’ coronation ceremony has been set, observers suspect it could take place in February 2023, which would mark 70 years since 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 September 19, which also took place at Westminster Abbey. The abbey was of great importance to the late sovereign – she also married Philippe there in 1947.

The period of royal mourning extends until next Monday, September 26.

Prince William, heir apparent to the throne, remembered his beloved “grandmother” on Wednesday while delivering a virtual speech to participants at a summit in New York on behalf of his environmental prizes, called The Earthshot Prize.

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

“During this time of mourning, I take great comfort in your continued enthusiasm, optimism and commitment to the Earthshot Prize and what we are trying to achieve,” said William. “Environmental protection was a cause close to my grandmother’s heart and I know she would have been delighted to hear about this event.
