Following King Charles' ascension to the throne, the princes are the next in line. The Prince Of Wales is the first in the line of succession, followed by his nine-year-old son, Prince George of Wales.

The three royal figures were photographed in Buckingham Palace's decadent throne room. The setting is the same backdrop seen in the coronation of the late Queen Elizabeth II's official crowning portraits.

While the photo shows the future of the crown, King Charles is also seen to honour a former monarch.He is pictured seated on the same throne made for the coronation of his great great grandfather Edward VII. 

Prince George is also pictured beside his grandfather in another newly released coronation image. George was one of eight Pages of Honour on the big day, with the photo showing some of the other guests including The Queen’s ladies in waiting.
