Three new photos of King Charles and Camilla, the Queen Consort released ahead of Coronation
Three new photographs of the King and Queen Consort at Buckingham Palace have been released ahead of their coronation next weekend.
The images were taken last month in the Palace’s blue drawing room.
One shows the royal couple standing side by side in front of a portrait of Charles’ grandfather King George V, painted shortly after his coronation in June 1911.
Charles is dressed in a blue Anderson and Sheppard suit, with a blue tie and white Turnbull and Asser shirt.
Camilla is wearing a blue wool crepe coat dress by British designer Fiona Clare, the late Queen’s pearl drop earrings set, which is adorned with sapphire and ruby gemstones, and a pearl necklace from her private collection.
The other two photographs show Charles and Camilla seated individually.
The King is sitting in a giltwood and silk upholstered armchair which dates to 1829 and was supplied to King George IV to furnish Windsor Castle.
And the Queen Consort is sitting in a giltwood and silk long-seated upholstered armchair dating back to 1812.
The chair was likely commissioned by King George IV when he was the Prince of Wales in the early 19th century.
The photographs were taken by Hugo Burnard, who also took Charles and Camilla’s wedding pictures in 2005.
