On Friday 23 September, Buckingham Palace unveiled the first official photo of King Charles III at work. Busy signing papers, he does not forget his parents, present at his side.
Despite a period of mourning that will last until September 26, Charles III is already at work. The new monarch was immortalized in his new functions on a photo unveiled by Buckingham Palace on Friday, September 23. The monarch can be seen signing official papers that are overflowing from a famous “Red box”. These boxes contain documents from UK government ministers and Commonwealth representatives on which the king must sign. Before him, his mother Elizabeth II received such boxes every day, except for Christmas.
King Charles III is still standing close to his late mother in a photograph on her French-style desk. Elizabeth II poses in this black and white photograph with the Duke of Edinburgh. A snapshot, offered to her father George VI and taken in 1951, before the accession to the throne of the monarch.
Elizabeth II immortalized for her 70th reign
From social networks, Buckingham Palace also unveiled three photographs of Queen Elizabeth II. We see the mother of Charles III, who died on September 8, at three periods of her life, with her red boxes. It is in front of one of them, while she was fulfilling her official duties in her castle of Sandringham in Norfolk, that she had been immortalized last February 2 for the official photograph of her 70 years of reign, which launched the year of her Platinum Jubilee.
