The Royal Family release new coronation portrait of King Charles with his heirs

The Royal Family have released a new coronation portrait of King Charles III and his heirs Prince William and Prince George.

The historic event took place on Saturday, May 6 at Westminster Abbey.

During the ceremony, which was the first of its kind in over 70 years, the King was anointed with holy oil before dressing in the coronation robes.

The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby then placed the 360-year-old St Edward’s Crown on the new sovereign’s head, and proclaimed: “God save the King!”

Charles was then accompanied to his throne in the theatre of coronation, where he was enthroned.

Queen Mary’s crown was later used to crown Queen Camilla, and she was presented with the Rod with Dove and the Sceptre with Cross.

Camilla curtsied before her husband, and they exchanged smiles as they relaxed after their respective crowning ceremonies.

In attendance at the coronation were Prince William, the heir to the throne, his wife Princess Kate and their three children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Prince Harry also attended his father’s coronation, but sat with his cousins Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice and Zara Tindall.

The first official portraits of King Charles III and Queen Camilla were captured by photographer Hugo Burnand in Buckingham Palace’s Throne Room and Green Drawing Room.

The Royal Family has since released another coronation portrait – this time of Charles the heirs to the throne – his son Prince William, and grandson Prince George.
