The first set of official coronation photos featured the king and queen, but also focused on "acting royals," to highlight those members who will be at the center of fulfilling the duties of the monarchy during the reign of Charles III.

More official photos are expected to be released as part of a Cabinet Office initiative to provide public buildings with a photographic portrait of the king.

Anti-monarchy activists have complained about the £8 million (more than $9 million) budget for the project, calling it “shameful waste“, but no precise details on how that money will be spent have been released so far.
