Following the issuance of the new official portrait of King Mohammed VI, the Moroccan head of government has called for the adoption of the portrait in all public institutions.
The new photograph has been the official monarch portrait since its release on September 23.
In his circular No.15/2019, El Othmani noted that the portrait is available exclusively at Barid Al-Maghrib (Morocco’s Postal Service).
Public institutions have begun to display the new portrait following the release of the circular.
The Minister of National Education, Vocational Training and Scientific Research also sent a correspondence to the directors of the regional academies of education and training calling for the adoption of the new portrait.
In this new portrait, the sovereign appears dressed in a black suit with a neatly trimmed beard. He is seated on the throne, the Moroccan flag standing next to him.
The King last updated his official portrait when he ascended to the throne 20 years ago, in 1999.
