Charles III Unveils Creepy First Oil Portrait of Him as King – And People Are Freaking Out
By Paul Serran | May. 14, 2024 7:20 pm

They say an image is worth a thousand words. If the image turns out to be an impactful high-end oil painting of one of the world’s most influential heads of state, it is probably worth many more words.

Britain’s King Charles III has a ‘new public face’, as he unveiled his first official portrait since his coronation last May.

The portrait was painted by artist Jonathan Yeo, and it depicts Charles against a background of ‘vivid red hues’ – maybe too vivid – wearing the uniform of the Welsh Guards military unit, Charles was made Regimental Colonel of this regiment in 1975.

A butterfly flutters just above his right shoulder to complete the disturbing effect.

“My aim was also to make reference to the traditions of Royal portraiture but in a way that reflects a 21st Century Monarchy and, above all else, to communicate the subject’s deep humanity.”

The portrait was unveiled at the Blue drawing room in Buckingham Palace.

It was commissioned back in 2020 to celebrate Charles’ 50 years as a member of the grant-giving body, The Drapers’ Company, in 2022, the palace said.

“Yeo’s past subjects have included British broadcaster and naturalist David Attenborough, Oscar-winning actor Nicole Kidman and former Prime Minister Tony Blair.

The oil on canvas artwork, which measures about 8-1/2 by 6-1/2 feet, is expected to be displayed at Drapers’ Hall in the City of London – the capital’s financial district – from the end of August, the palace said.”

Commenters were not kind to the artwork, basically saying ‘it looks like he is in hell’. Even the NYPost called it the ‘ghostly-looking’ Charles portrait, but people want much harder.

Some asked if it was ‘all the blood on his hands?’, or said that they ‘100% thought this was satire’, called it ‘a little creepy’, ‘slightly disturbing’, ‘like he’s bathing in blood’.

“The portrait — which will ultimately hang in Drapers’ Hall — was commissioned in 2020 to celebrate the then Prince of Wales’s 50 years as a member of The Drapers’ Company in 2022.”

Next time, they should ask the artist to remove their pink glasses before continuing.

Charles--or the artist--was really jealous of the portrait of Obama disappearing into the greenery.

It’s appropriate. Charles is a globalist and complicit with evil.



"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."

Regardless of the actual image (hues of red, whatever), one must wonder about the judgment of the person who approved of this portait. It goes against 100% of all previous royal portraits.

If the monarch approved this, the monarch has poor judgment. If the monarch approved this because he adopted the views of the artist, the need to relate to a different generation, etc. the monarch is without a compass. He is not in charge of his own destiny.

If this is one of many steps taken to either bring in the son as King or to remove the monarchy, it makes some sense.

In one of his chats with Camilla, didn't he once say that he wished to be reincarnated as a tampon? Perhaps this portrait is a further manifestation of that......

Charles has been a member of the WEF.
The World Economic Forum is devoted to "saving the planet" by reducing the human population from 8 billion to 1 billion.

It also advances the idea of one-world government.

What will King Charles's reign mean for climate action?

As Britain’s King Charles III begins his reign after the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, environmental campaigners will be watching closely to see if he continues to advocate for climate action and is able to help drive change as monarch.

This was known and expected in England for over 30 years. The second instalment (1993) of the original BBC House of Cards has a leftist Prince of Wales (Michael Kitchen) succeed his mother and run head long into the conservative, Machiavellian Prime Minister Francis Urquhart - played by the brilliant Ian Richardson. The parallels in the show to the true colors King Charles is now showing are striking.

King Charles III’s official portrait has a distinctly Satanic vibe
By Andrea Widburg

Yesterday, King Charles III of England unveiled his official portrait. The unveiling was a deeply disturbing experience because—no fooling—there’s a distinctly Satanic vibe to the whole thing, including a hidden Baphomet. There’s nothing royal and everything creepy about the image showing the King’s grim face atop his red uniform, with the whole emerging from a hellish red background. Charles’s forebearers are rolling in their graves.

The color red has been a cultural theme lately, and not in a good way. Satanism and blood are big now among the crazy leftists who dominate pop culture:
https://twitter.com/OliLondonT...ly_satanic_vibe.html



An obsession with blood generally characterizes the “artistic” side of the Democrat fever swamp. Just look at performance artist Marina Abramović’s popularity with the “in crowd.” Her “art” includes something called “spirit cooking,” which involved pig’s blood, among other things.

Knowing about the pop culture’s blood and Satanic obsessions, it’s hard to look objectively at King Charles’s official portrait:

Many among the Twitterati went straight to “Oh, my God, is that Satan hidden in there?”

https://twitter.com/Vision4the...ly_satanic_vibe.html



If you’re not seeing it, this might help:

Hey, Baphomet! Is that you? Now I’m going to spend days wondering whether the artist intended that face to appear, whether it’s an amusing coincidence, or whether there’s something more...well...Satanic at work here. One way or another, this is a really bad look for the man who is the official head of the Church of England.

In addition to the Satanic issue, most people instantly recognized this as a really lousy work of art, spawning a lot of memes.
