London: Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II’s son Prince Charles has become the new King after her death. He will now be called as King Charles III.
As King, he reached Buckingham Palace for the first time on Friday evening and in his first address to the nation, he said he would serve the people with full devotion and love just like the Queen.
King Charles III looked very emotional while giving one last message to his mother.
“My dear mother was an inspiration for me and my family. In 1947, my mother took a vow on her 21st birthday. She just wanted to serve people all her life. It was more than a promise to the people which he kept all his life.
Mentioned his two sons
King Charles said, “Now my son William will be my successor.” William and his wife Kate will be the Prince and Princess of Wales. In his address, he sent love to second son Harry and wife Meghan. They are definitely away from the royal family, but be happy wherever they are.
Changed titles of the royal family
Prince William, the son of King Charles III, will now be called the Prince of Wales. Queen Elizabeth II crowned her son Charles prince of Wales in 1969. He has inherited his father’s title of Duke of Cornwall. William and Kate are now given the title of Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge.
Not only this, Charles’s wife Camilla will also now be known by a new title. She will be called the Queen Consort.
Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, son of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, is technically a prince now after the death of Queen Elizabeth. Harry-Meghan’s daughter Lilibet ‘Lily’ Mountbatten-Windsor also deserves to be a princess after her grandfather Charles sits on the throne.
Charles to be formally declared king today
King Charles will be officially announced as Britain’s new monarch at the accession council meeting at St James’s Palace at 2.30 pm Indian time.
