King Charles III has been presented with a tribute in his late mother’s likeness during a royal engagement at Buckingham Palace.
The monarch was gifted the maquette by the Governor of South Australia, Frances Adamson, and the Former Agent General of South Australia, Rod Bunten.
Also attending the engagement at the Palace was the serving Agent General of South Australia, Bill Muirhead, as well as David Ridgway and Peter Flavel.
The King previously unveiled the first statue of the Queen since her death earlier this month.
The monarch travelled to York for the reveal of the two-metre-tall sculpture, which he said would “watch over” the city.
During the official visit, King Charles was also presented with a maquette of the larger-than-life statue.
The King said during his visit that the “late Queen was always vigilant for the welfare of her people during her life”.
He added: “Now her image will watch over what will become Queen Elizabeth Square for centuries to come.”
Further statues are expected to be placed on display in the coming months and years as a tribute to the longest-reigning monarch.
