The New King of Britain: At the ceremony of Saturday’s ‘Accession Council,’ King Charles III, the son of Queen Elizabeth II of Britain was made the new King. The ceremony was broadcast live on television, breaking with tradition. To officially announce the coronation of the king, the ceremony took place at St James’s Palace in London.
King Charles III was present at the ceremony along with Queen Consort Camilla, their son and heir Prince William. Prince William is the new Prince Of Wales. During this ceremony, PM Liz Truss was present as well as others. King Charles-III, upon being proclaimed king, said that it was his sad duty to announce my beloved mother’s passing. I am sure you feel my pain and that this is a terrible loss for all of us. My lovely wife’s continued support is a great encouragement.
What did King Charles III have to say?
He stated that he was aware of the heavy responsibilities and duties of sovereignty. All my life, I will strive to be loyal, respectful, and loving. In fulfilling these responsibilities, i will strive to follow the example I set by upholding constitutional governance. I will work for peace, harmony, and prosperity in these Commonwealth territories and other islands around the globe.
On the day following the death of Queen Elizabeth-II, King Charles-III addressed Britain. He had stated that My Majesty the queen, my beloved mother was, and still is, an inspiration to me and my family. His death has deeply affected me. I promise to continue the service he rendered throughout my life.
Elizabeth’s final resting place was Balmoral Castle.
Charles was made king by protocol after the death of his mother. However, the accession council completes formalities such as officially naming the new monarch. Although the coronation of a new emperor is completed within 24 hours of the death of the former emperor, this time it took longer. Queen Elizabeth II, 96, died at Balmoral Castle in Scotland on Thursday.
Two days after Queen Elizabeth II’s death, the monarch is crowned. The Accession Council is made up of members of the Privy Council, the Lord Mayor of London and other senior officials.
