LONDON (AP) – King Charles III has been pictured taking up his new state duties in Buckingham Palace for the first time.
On the photo, the monarch can be seen gazing into his official redbox which houses documents from the British Government as well as the Commonwealth.
In a sign of royal continuity, the picture is taken in front of a photo of his late parents, Elizabeth and Philip, which the pair had gifted to King George VI in 1951 — the year before Elizabeth became queen.
Red Boxes were presented to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth upon her Coronation in 1952. They were used almost daily, except Christmas Day, during her reign. pic.twitter.com/hgGUZim8Y1

Queen Elizabeth II also posed regularly during her reign with her red box (which each monarch gets from their private secretary).
This image was taken at Buckingham Palace’s Eighteenth Century Room three days following Elizabeth’s death.
