On Tuesday, the first portrait of King Charles III since taking the throne was revealed.

Painted by Alastair Barford in oils, the artwork depicts His Majesty in a blue suit, white shirt, pink tie, and pocket square with his hand resting casually in his jacket pocket.

Although it is not an official one, it is the first one for the Monorach after taking the throne.

Barford said that he wanted to depict a "personal and intimate" moment of the king, and that's why he decided to keep him in a formal suit.

It is not the first time the 35-year-old artist to execute a Royal portrait as he was the one who painted the 2015's portrait of the late Queen Elizabeth II.
