The official photos taken after King Charles III and Queen Camilla's coronation have been released, along with a message from the King.

British photographer Hugo Burnand took pictures of the royal couple at the Buckingham Palace, which shows the King and Queen in full regalia.

One portrait shows King Charles III sitting on King George V's 1902 throne chair with his full regalia on: the Robe of Estate and the Imperial State Crown while holding the Sovereign's Orb and Sovereign's Sceptre with Cross.

In addition to the photos, the couple extended their "most sincere and heartfelt thanks" to the public.

He went on to thank those who had "given their time and dedication" to ensure that the momentous event was "happy, safe and enjoyable as possible."

"To those who joined in the celebrations - whether at home, at street parties and lunches, or by volunteering in communities - we thank you, each and every one.

"To know that we have your support and encouragement, and to witness your kindness expressed in so many different ways, has been the greatest possible Coronation gift, as we now rededicate our lives to serving the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and Commonwealth."
