Amid the world's attention, the first official photo of Charles III, who celebrated the "coronation of the century," was released on the 9th. This photograph, which will go down in history alongside photographs of Britain's previous kings, was posed in the throne room at London's Buckingham Palace, dressed in the crown of St. Edward, worn at the coronation ceremony, and dressed in an orb and scepter.

In a message accompanying the photo, Charles III expressed his gratitude, saying: "Knowing your support and encouragement was the best coronation gift I can make for the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth in the years to come."

A photograph of Queen Camilla, who became 'official queen' upon Charles III's accession, was also released. As long as Prince Charles ascended the throne after 65 long years, Camilla's path to queen was long and arduous. Camilla, who was called the 'National Affair' and was not recognised, was formerly referred to as the 'Duchess of Cornwall'. But last year, the late Elizabeth II asked Camilla to be called Queen Consort in a statement commemorating the 70th anniversary of her accession, narrowly qualifying her as the King's Consort, and this time she was finally called Queen Camilla.

Charles III garnered worldwide attention in 1981 when he celebrated the "wedding of the century" with Princess Diana, but he was shunned by the public due to his affair with Camilla, his divorce from Diana, and Diana's sudden accident and death. The public's antipathy towards affair couples was evident in the media before and after the coronation. A British magazine carried a photo of the coronation scene on its cover in a special issue with the headline: "Honey, We Won."

It seems to emphasize that they have not been officially recognized as a married couple, but that has changed now. The main reason the couple has been shunned by the British has been influenced by Princess Diana, who was involved in a mysterious car accident at the age of 35. It's been 25 years since Princess Diana, who was more popular than Prince Charles during her lifetime, passed away, but the British still miss her.

Last year, on the 25th anniversary of Diana's death, mourners continued to lay in front of Kensington Palace in London, England, where Princess Diana stayed during her lifetime, and at the Flame of Liberty statue near the underground tunnel of the Alma Bridge in Paris, where Princess Diana was involved in a car accident.

Therefore, Charles III, the longest-prepared monarch, had to endure criticism while silently acting as crown prince. As an ardent environmentalist, he has taken a keen interest in climate change issues and has established himself by making strong statements at various international events. As a member of the Royal Family, he has gone beyond faithfully completing his military service, which is also an obligation of the Royal Family, and has used his Navy retirement savings to create the Prince Trust Foundation, which has supported millions of young people to date.

Charles III, a hands-on environmental activist, is also known for running his cars on biofuel. The Aston Martin, which he received from the Queen as a present for his 21st birthday, is powered by eco-friendly fuels from the white wine and cheese-making process, so it smells 'delicious' when driving.

In a recent BBC poll, 60% of the respondents said Charles III was "doing well", more than four times the number who said he was "not doing well" (14%). Of course, she is less than her mother, Elizabeth II, but she has a majority of support.

Coronation effect, how long will it last?

Despite the safe completion of the coronation amid this upward trajectory, there are still many mountains for Charles III to climb. First of all, support for the monarchy itself is getting lower and lower. According to a recent survey, support for the monarchy is around 3%. Ten years ago, it was close to 60 percent, but younger people in particular are less and less interested, with only 10 percent support among 75-18 year olds. The economic hardship caused by Brexit, coupled with COVID, has been exacerbating in recent years. For this reason, the coronation of Charles III has also been greatly reduced in size compared to the coronation of the Queen 24 years ago.
