Charles III is depicted in the new portrait with a sword in his hand, while a butterfly sits on his shoulder.

The first official portrait of King Charles III since his coronation has been unveiled at Buckingham Palace.

It is an eight-foot tall oil painting of the monarch in Welsh Guards uniform with sword and bow tie.

The artist is Jonathan Yeo. He also painted portraits of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, British TV presenter David Attenborough and Pakistani human rights activist Malala Yousafzai.

Yeo noted that in art history, the butterfly symbolizes metamorphosis and rebirth, and the butterfly also refers to the king’s long-standing interest in the environment.

He began painting a portrait of Charles III in June 2021, when he was still Prince of Wales. In total, the monarch posed for the artist four times, each of these meetings lasted about an hour.
