New Official Portraits and a Rare Look into the Past
Buckingham Palace recently released three new official portraits of King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla, taken by Hugo Burnand, who was the official photographer at their wedding in 2005.
The portraits were taken last month in the Blue Drawing Room at Buckingham Palace, and offer a glimpse into the regal elegance of the monarchs. Additionally, a never-before-seen picture of King Charles was shared, taken while he was a student at Cambridge University in October 1967.
This historic image has been kept in the archives of Trinity College and offers a rare look into the personal life of the King.

The coronation of King Charles III is set to take place on Saturday, May 6, 2023, at Westminster Abbey in London, and is the centerpiece of the Coronation Weekend, a festive celebration that will take place between Saturday, May 6, and Monday, May 8.
Buckingham Palace is pleased to announce further details of the celebratory and community events that will take place over the weekend, and it promises to be an unforgettable celebration of the monarchy.
