Just a day after being in the company of the King, outgoing district council chairman Coun Mike Clarke said it was a great honour to unveil the Monarch’s new portrait at the North Kesteven council offices.

A year after the Coronation of King Charles III an official portrait has been made available for councils to display, in keeping with a long-held tradition of displaying monarchs in public buildings at the heart of national life.

In his last official duty as chairman for 2023-24 – and just hours after being at a Buckingham Palace Garden party – Coun Clarke was joined by the King’s representative Toby Dennis, Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire, to reveal the portrait ahead of the Annual Council meeting.

“This portrait is not just a representation of a Monarch; it is a celebration of our collective history, achievements, and aspirations,” he said.

The photograph was taken last autumn at Windsor Castle by Hugo Burnand.
