The portrait of the monarch was the first completed since he assumed the throne and shows him in a bright red uniform of the Welsh Guards against a background of similar colors. The king has his hands clasped atop the hilt of his sword and a butterfly in his right shoulder in the painting. The portrait of Britain's King Charles III was unveiled at Buckingham Palace in London on Tuesday.

The portrait was started more than a year before Charles became king, with a sitting at the Prince of Wales' Highgrove estate in June 2021. "When I started this project, His Majesty The King was still His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, and much like the butterfly I've painted hovering over his shoulder, this portrait has evolved as the subject's role in our public life has changed,'' he said. The Buckingham Palace of artist Jonathan Yeo has an oil on canvas portrait of Britain's King Charles III.

The portrait will be on display in London from May 16 to June 14 and from the end of August to September. The portrait was commissioned to celebrate Charles' 50 years as a member of the Drapers' Company, which was set up over 600 years ago as a trade association for wool merchants.
