King Charles’ Coronation has been marked by the release of two more official portraits.
The King and Queen Consort were officially crowned at Westminster Abbey last Saturday – as thousands of well-wishers lined the streets of London to view the spectacle, and millions more watched from home.
The official portraits were taken in the Buckingham Palace throne room after the ceremony – with the King wearing the Imperial State Crown and the Queen wearing Queen Mary’s Crown.
The picture of the Pages and Ladies in Attendance, from left to right, shows:
Ralph Tollemache is the son of one of King Charles’ godchildren. The 12-year-old’s father is Edward Tollemache, a banker and aristocrat, who was a former page to the late Queen Elizabeth II.
Lord Oliver Cholmondeley
Oliver is the son of the 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley and his wife Rose Hanbury, who live at Houghton Hall in Norfolk – near the Prince and Princess of Wales’ countryside bolthole Anmer Hall.
Oliver’s father David, a 62 year old filmmaker, was also a page of honour to the late Queen from the ages of 14 to 16 in the 1970s.
Nicholas Barclay, 13, is son of King Charles’ goddaughter Rose Troughton and her husband Piers Barclay.
Rose is the daughter of Sarah Troughton, who is said to be Camilla’s personal friend and accompanies the Queen Consort on royal engagements. Sarah is also the first woman to hold the role of Lord-Lieutenant of Wiltshire.
Prince George, the most well-known and youngest of all the pages, is the son of Prince William and Kate Middleton – and second in the line of succession to the throne.
He was given the important role at the age of just nine as the King was keen for his heirs to play a visible part in proceedings.
The Marchioness of Lansdowne
The Marchioness of Lansdowne is one of Camilla’s dearest friends and played an important part in the Coronation ceremony – helping with the Queen Consort’s ceremonial robe. She was even given the honour of appearing on the Buckingham Palace balcony after the historic service.
The Marchioness of Lansdowne, 68, is the wife of Charles Maurice Petty-Fitzmaurice, 9th Marquess of Lansdowne. She is an interior designer known professionally as Fiona Shelburne and has been a close friend of Camilla since the Queen’s first marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles.
King Charles III and Queen Camilla
The new King and Queen Consort, who married in a civil ceremony in April 2005, were finally officially crowned at Westminster Abbey on Saturday.
Charles became King on the late Queen Elizabeth II’s death in September last year . At the age of 73, he was the oldest person to accede to the British throne, after having been the longest-serving heir apparent in British history.
Annabel is the Queen Consort’s younger sister and also had a formal role on Coronation day as one of the Ladies in Attendance, helping to straighten the Queen’s Bruce Oldfield gown inside the Abbey.
Annabel, a 74-year-old interior designer, is close to Camilla, 75, and on rare occasions has taken part in royal events with her older sibling.
Freddy Parker Bowles
Freddy, 13, is Camilla’s grandson – the child of her son Tom Parker Bowles and his former wife Sara. Freddy has twin cousins – Gus and Louis Lopes – who also served as Queen Camilla’s Pages of Honour.
Arthur is Camilla’s great nephew. The 10 year old is grandson of Camilla’s sister Annabel, while his father Ben is a former co-chairman of the Conservative party.
Gus and Louis Lopes
Gus and Louis, 13, are Camilla’s twin grandsons. The boys are the children of the Queen Consort’s daughter Laura and her husband Harry.
