To round off the weekend’s celebrations, King Charles issued a special written message in which he thanked his subjects.
The King said that he and Queen Camilla wanted to offer “our most sincere and heartfelt thanks to all those who have helped make this such a special occasion.”
He then paid tribute to the “countless people” who gave up their own time to ensure that festivities across the country were “as happy, safe and enjoyable as possible.”
The newly published pictures included a couple of solo shots of the new King and Queen Camilla, as well as a couple of group shots of the whole family.
And eagle-eyed royal watchers were quick to spot a few hidden details in the pictures…
Kate Middleton added a three strand diamond necklace to her coronation outfit in the official photos.
The necklace she chose to don for the photos is the George VI Festoon Necklace, which the then-king had commissioned as a gift for his daughter Elizabeth in 1950.
Kate had originally been expecting to wear the late Queen’s piece for the coronation itself, but it’s thought she ditched it for the actual ceremony so as not to overwhelm her look.
Sophie offers support
Sophie, the Duchess of Edinburgh, offered her arm as a gesture of support for Princess Alexandra, the 86 year old Lady Ogilvy.
Sophie was pictured holding onto Alexandra’s arm while they stood on the steps.
Princess Alexandra was also present at Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation back in 1953, when she was just sixteen years old.
Camilla pays tribute to her dogs
In the official photographs, royal fans noticed that Queen Camilla’s gown was embroidered with a very sweet tribute to her two jack russells.
At the bottom of the robes her two beloved dogs, Beth and Bluebell, were included in the intricate gold embroidery.
The gown was also embellished with a series of floral designs and the names of Camilla’s grandchildren.
Charles’ new royal Cypher
In his written message accompanying the official portraits, Charles signed off using his brand new royal cypher.
King Charles III is now using Charles R to sign off on official documents with the R standing for Rex (King in latin).
His late mother Queen Elizabeth II famously used ER as her royal cypher, which stood for Elizabeth Regina (Queen in latin).
Kate and Sophie’s sashes
Kate and Sophie ditched their long robes and donned a sash each for the official coronation portraits.
These sashes symbolise their positions as Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order, which is the female equivalent to a knighthood.
Kate, who recently wowed fans with her gorgeous red suit at the coronation concert, was appointed as a Dame Grand Cross for her eighth wedding anniversary in 2019 by the late Queen Elizabeth II while Sophie was awarded the honour back in 2010.
