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

A photograph taken on September 11 shows the King in the Eighteenth Century Room at Buckingham Palace. Charles is depicted at his desk looking at a red box, also called a “shipping box”.

The distinctive briefcase, which is delivered to the King wherever he is, contains papers from UK government ministers and Commonwealth representatives. (To the dismay of those who want to take a closer look at the documents, they are blurry.)

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

Prince Philip died at the age of 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 in June, marking her tenth anniversary on the throne.

Charles ascended the throne immediately after the death of his mother, as did Elizabeth after the death of her father in 1952. need to plan an event.

Although no date has been set for Charles’s coronation ceremony, observers suspect it could take place in February 2023, which would be the 70th anniversary of his mother’s coronation at Westminster Abbey in 1953.

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

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

Prince William, the heir to the throne, remembered his beloved “grandmother” on Wednesday as he delivered a virtual address to New York summit attendees on behalf of his environmental award, The Earthshot Prize.

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

“At this difficult time, I am greatly comforted by your continued enthusiasm, optimism and commitment to The Earthshot Prize and what we are trying to achieve,” said William. “Environmental protection was a matter close to my grandmother’s heart, and I know she would love to hear about it.”
