King Charles III was officially proclaimed as the new monarch on Saturday. The ceremony took place following the death of Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday.
King Charles III was officially proclaimed as the new monarch on Saturday. This was announced at a meeting of the Privy Council at St James's Palace. Now he will be called King Charles-III. Charles inherited his father's title, Duke of Cornwall. In such a situation, his wife Camilla will now be called Duchess of Cornwall.
The Privy Council consists of senior parliamentarians, senior civil servants, the Commonwealth High Commissioner, and the Lord Mayor of London. Normally more than 700 people attend this event, but this time there was no scope for such a number as the program was organized on short notice.
At this event, Penny Mordant, Lord President of the Privy Council, first announced the death of Elizabeth II. After this, there were many prayers, and the achievements of the queen were told. Along with this, the merits of the new king were also counted.
The manifesto was signed by the Prime Minister, the Archbishop of Canterbury, and several senior officials, including the Lord Chancellor. In this program, it was also decided whether some changes would be made after the new king took power. Eventually, according to royal tradition, Charles would be formally crowned. The date on which this coronation ceremony will take place has not been announced.
