King Charles Released New Royal Portrait To Mark Armed Forces Day

Photographed by Hugo Burnand in November 2023, the image captures the monarch in the Grand Corridor of Windsor Castle adorned in a full military uniform.

His attire includes the Field Marshal No1 Full Ceremonial Frock Coat, embellished with medals, a sword, and various decorations. Charles is seated in a green armchair for the portrait.

In addition to the new portrait, Queen Camilla also made an appearance in a video where she honored servicepeople.

“I am deeply honoured to join you all on Armed Forces Day,” the 76-year-old said. 

For her video, the royal looked elegant in a stylish blue dress, which was finished with her Royal Lancers brooch. 

The brooch carries a special significance for Camilla as it’s the regiment in which her father served and of which Her Majesty is Colonel in Chief.

“Whether in this country or overseas, we celebrate the service of the men and women in our military and thank you all for everything you do to protect this country of ours. We also remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the pursuit of stability and peace around the world,” she said.

“Earlier this month, my husband and I were in Normandy on the 80th anniversary of D-Day. We were reminded of the incredible bravery of the Allied land, sea and air forces whose combined endeavours brought about the liberation of Western Europe and in whose debt we shall forever be.”

Camilla continued: “Eight decades later, I know that that same spirit and those same qualities remain much in evidence throughout our Armed Forces, as you undertake your duties in the face of a multitude of challenges and dangers. 

“In so doing, you not only protect these Isles, but also defend liberties way beyond these shores. Your determination, unrelenting efforts and selfless loyalty to each other and to the United Kingdom are as enduring as our gratitude.

“I also want to thank your families, who keep the home fires burning, whilst you are deployed overseas. As the proud daughter of an Army officer, I know something of the impact military life has on your loved ones – you too are heroes.

“In times of war and in times of peace, whether seen or unseen, our Armed Forces support and strengthen our nation. You are a source of inspiration, reassurance and pride – and I salute you all.”
