The new photo of Charles was taken last week, ahead of the Sept. 19 state funeral for Charles’ mother, Queen Elizabeth II, who died earlier this month at age 96.

Charles and his wife Camilla, the queen consort, reportedly traveled to Scotland after the queen’s funeral.

Other members of the royal family also remained largely out of the limelight during the mourning period, attending only a limited number of engagements to thank those who helped with the Queen’s funeral.

For example, the Queen’s coronation took place on June 2, 1953, more than a year after she ascended the throne after her father’s death.

Charles is expected to be crowned at Westminster Abbey, where every coronation has taken place for the past 900 years, according to the royal family’s website.
