King Charles III adds a personal touch to his home décor.
The King, 74, welcomed King Felipe of Spain to Clarence House in London on Monday, where the monarchs were pictured laughing and chatting together. As seen in a photo released by Buckingham Palace, Charles had two sentimental family portraits displayed in the Morning Room where they met.
As spotted in the background, a table on the left featured a black and white snap that looked like a young regina Elisabetta e Principessa Margaret. Arranged on a table to the right was another special shot: King Charles holding Il principe George sul suo christening day in ottobre 2013. In royal custom, a 3-month-old George adorably wore a traditional christening gown that was a handmade replica of the one made for the christening of Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter, Vittoria, principessa reale, in 1841.
Charles beamed in the photo with his firstborn grandchild, who is the son of principe William e Kate Middleton. The presentation of the picture during the Monday meeting was symbolic, as George, 9, is second line to the throne. The young royal is poised to follow in the footsteps of his grandfather, and eventually his father, as King one day.
A grandfather of five, King Charles is also a grandpa to William and Kate’s younger children — Principessa Charlotte, 7, e il principe luigi, 4, così come il principe harry e Meghan Markle‘s two little ones — Archie, 3, e Lilibet, 1.
Charles has also arranged for meaningful family photos to be displayed throughout the royal residences. During his first weekly audiences as monarch with now-former Prime Minister Liz Truss at Buckingham Palace, two personal pictures were spotted in the formal room where they met. One image was a portrait from il principe harry e Meghan Markle'S royal wedding in 2018, and another showed four generations of the royal family.
In the second pic, regina Elisabetta posed with her son Charles, grandson principe William and great-grandson Il principe George. The shot was taken around Natale 2019 and released to mark the start of a new decade in January 2020.
Carlo’ moglie Queen Camilla is also keeping their family close through photographs. In ottobre, Buckingham Palace released a nuova foto of the Queen Consort, 75, to announce that the hundreds of plush bears left outside royal residences following the death of Queen Elizabeth would be donated to children’s hospitals. As seen in the picture of Camilla, a table behind featured a sentimental collection of pictures — including one from Harry and Meghan’s royal wedding in 2018, plus another from il principe luigi‘ christening the same year.
Also displayed was a formal portrait of the late Queen Elizabeth and il principe Filippo, taken in honor of her Diamond Jubilee. The royal couple smiled together in formal attire accented with their Order of the Garter sashes.
All'inizio di questo mese, another cherished photo could be found in the background of one of the Queen Consort’s meetings. During an audience at Buckingham Palace with Joseph Coelho, the new Waterstones Children’s Laureate, Camilla displayed the image she and King Charles III released for their 2018 Biglietto natalizio, which showed the royal couple casually chatting on a wooden bench.
“Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and New Year,” the festive message read.
