Royal Family Unveils Queen Camilla’s Official Portrait After Coronation Ceremony

To mark the start of this new reign, the royal family initially released the first official portrait of the newly-appointed King Charles, 74, after he was crowned the new monarch during this past weekend’s coronation celebration. And now, the new portrait of his wife, Queen Camilla (yes, the fam dropped the word “Consort”), has finally been unveiled.

The brand-new photo (taken by Hugo Burnand) was shared on the royal family’s Instagram page. In the portrait, Queen Camilla, 75, is donning beautiful royal regalia from head to toe, which was created by famous British designer, Bruce Oldfield.

And of course, the stunning dress she is wearing in the portrait just so happens to be the same royal attire she wore during her crowning moment (alongside her husband).

The caption read: “An official portrait of Her Majesty The Queen following her Coronation on 6th May.”

Queen Consort Camilla wore an ivory gown that featured silver and gold embroidery, in addition to an embroidered underskirt. Also, she sported the late Queen Mary’s crown, which had undergone slight alterations to pay tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II.

In a previous post, it was revealed that the late queen was quite fond of the diamonds placed in the crown. The caption explained: “The diamonds were part of Queen Elizabeth II’s personal jewelry collection for many years and were often worn by Her late Majesty as brooches.” 

In addition, the post stated that it is the first time in recent history that an existing crown was used for a consort at the coronation instead of a commissioned one.

Queen Camilla has finally made her entrance.
