Official portrait of King Charles III mocked online


The first officially commissioned portrait of King Charles III unveiled since he became king has received a divided reaction across social media.

The portrait, created by artist Jonathan Yeo, was commissioned in 2020 to celebrate the Prince of Wales’s 50 years as a member of the Drapers’ Company, which would have occurred in 2022. Instead, the portrait was unveiled Tuesday and has met a mixed reaction online due to its striking, sea-of-pink composition.

About the portrait’s look, Yeo joked to the BBC: “If this was seen as treasonous, I could literally pay for it with my head, which would be an appropriate way for a portrait painter to die — to have their head removed!”
