(CNN) — New photos of Britain’s King Charles III and Queen Camilla were released by Buckingham Palace on Friday.
The three images were taken by photographer Hugo Burnand in the Green Drawing Room at Buckingham Palace last month, according to a statement from the palace.
In one photo, Charles is shown sitting in a gilded and blue silk mahogany armchair from 1828, while Camilla is seated in a gilded and blue silk-covered wooden chair dating from circa 1812.
According to the Buckingham Palace website, the Blue Drawing Room was originally used as a palace ballroom before the current ballroom was built in 1855.
Burnand is no stranger to the royal family, having photographed the weddings of both Charles and Camilla in 2005 and Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011.
In the background of the photographs is a state portrait of King George V, painted after his coronation in 1911.
Charles and Camilla’s coronation will take place at Westminster Abbey in London on May 6.
