Buckingham Palace released a new portrait of the king last night to mark the start of his reign after the royal family’s period of mourning for the queen ended.

As a clear sign that King Charles’ sovereignty will be both less formal and more focused on the four eldest members of the family, the new monarch looks relaxed with his hand in his pocket and his arm around his wife Camilla, the Queen consort.

Beside them are William and Kate, who also look confident but restless as they contemplate their new role as Prince and Princess of Wales.

The photo, described by an insider as a combination of ‘formal and informal’, was taken at a reception for foreign dignitaries on the eve of the Queen’s State Funeral.

Not so long ago, it was Princes William and Harry who, along with their wives, were dubbed the ‘Fab Four’ – with great hopes for the future of the royal family.

Despite the sadness of the occasion, a photographer was invited to capture ‘an important moment in history’.

King Charles has made it clear that he will have to rely on his eldest son and daughter-in-law as he takes on the new role as head of state.

In recognition of this, he named them Prince and Princess of Wales in his maiden address to the nation after their accession to the throne.
