King Charles III, the New Monarch to follow some customary requirements
King Charles III, the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II, the British monarch with the longest reign, has succeeded to the throne after his mother's passing on Thursday. However, he must first complete a number of practical and customary requirements before being anointed King.
On Saturday, Charles is anticipated to be formally crowned King. This will take place in front of the Accession Council, a ceremonial council, in St. James' Palace in London.
Members of the Privy Council, including former and current senior MPs, peers, high-ranking civil workers, Commonwealth ambassadors, and the Lord Mayor of London, make up this body.
The Lord President of the Privy Council will inform the gathering of Queen Elizabeth's passing and read a proclamation. Senior leaders such as the prime minister, the archbishop of Canterbury, and the Lord Chancellor then sign this proclamation.
A public declaration naming Charles as the new King will be made following a trumpet fanfare.
