King Charles Official Potrait Unveiled

The recently unveiled official portrait of King Charles III, captured at Windsor Castle last year by photographer Hugo Burnand, features the king donning a Royal Navy Admiral of the Fleet uniform adorned with medals. Public institutions in the United Kingdom, including courts, schools, and councils, have the option to request complimentary oak-framed copies of the portrait, measuring 64 by 51 centimeters. Burnand, known for his close ties to the royal family, previously photographed official events such as Charles and Queen Camilla’s coronation and weddings of Charles and Camilla in 2005, and William and Catherine in 2011. The £8 million portrait scheme has faced criticism from anti-monarchy group Republic, deeming it a “shameful waste of money.” While public bodies can request copies, it remains unclear how many have done so, with deliveries scheduled from February onwards. Commercial copies will also be made available. The UK Cabinet Office noted that the portrait aims to “reflect the new era in our history.
