Harry ‘pushed into the background’ as Meghan Markle ‘takes over’ Nigeria tour

King Charles and Queen Camilla have arrived at St Paul's Cathedral this morning.

The pair are attending a service of dedication for the Order of The British Empire.


It comes after the King and Queen missed Prince Harry's Invictus Games service at St. Paul's Cathedral last week.

The monarch did not see his son, the Duke of Sussex, during his trip to the UK to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games.



On Wednesday morning, the King and Queen walked up the stairs of St Paul's Cathedral wearing bright red cloaks.

The royal couple are to be joined by almost 2000 people who hold Orders awards, including those with CBE's, OBE's, MBE's and British Empire Medals.

Furthermore, those with knighthoods and damehoods have been invited to the service.

The Order of the Empire was established in 1917 to reward outstanding contributions to the war effort and now recognises the work of people from all walks of life.



On arrival, Charles and Camilla were met by the Lord Mayor, Alderman Professor Michael Mainelli KStJ and taken into the cathedral.

They were then greeted by the Dean, the Chapter, and officials of the order before taking their place in the congregation.

It comes the day after the monarch unveiled the first official portrait of the King since the coronation in 2023.

The portrait was commissioned in 2020 to celebrate the then Prince of Wales’s 50 years as a member of The Drapers’ Company in 2022.



LATEST ROYAL NEWS:



The bright, red portrait was designed by artist Jonathan Yeo, who also painted Tony Blair, Sir David Attenborough and Malala Yousafzai.

After the unveiling, Yeo said he would "love to take full credit for that" but it was "actually the subject’s idea."

Following his speech, the King joked: "It’s nice to know I was a chrysalis when you first met me," which was met with laughter.

Yeo continued: "When I started this project, His Majesty The King was still His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, and much like the butterfly I've painted hovering over his shoulder, this portrait has evolved as the subject's role in our public life has transformed."
