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.

A photo taken on September 11 shows the king in an eighteenth-century room at Buckingham Palace. Charles is shown at his desk looking at the Red Box, also referred to as the “depedition box”.

The distinctive briefcase, which is delivered to the King wherever he is, contains documents from government ministers in the United Kingdom and Commonwealth representatives. (To the dismay of anyone who wants to take a closer look at the documents, the papers are blurred.)

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

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

Charles ascended the throne immediately after his mother’s death, as did Elizabeth after her own father’s death in 1952. Like his mother’s, Charles’ coronation is likely to take place long after he becomes monarch, as a sign of respect, and due to the timing, the event needs to be planned.

Although the date for Charles’ coronation ceremony has not been set, observers believe 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 19 September, also held at Westminster Abbey. The abbey was of great importance to the late monarch – in 1947 she also married Philip there.

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

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

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

“During this time of grief, 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 cause close to my grandmother’s heart and I know she would have loved to hear about this event.”
