UK: Prince Charles Is The New ‘King Charles III’


Charles, the former Prince of Wales, is the new king, as the throne passes to him immediately at the moment of Queen’s death, as per the royal protocol, BBC reported.

However,  there are a number of practical and traditional steps which he must go through to be crowned as  King.

According to the media reports, Charles will be known as as King Charles III. This was the first decision of the new king’s reign. He could have chosen from any of his four names – Charles Philip Arthur George.

He is not the only one who faces a change of title.

Although he is heir to the throne, Prince William will not automatically become Prince of Wales – that will have to be conferred on him by his father. He has inherited his father’s title of Duke of Cornwall – William and Kate are now titled Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge.

There is also a new title for Charles’ wife, Camilla, who becomes the Queen Consort – consort is the term used for the spouse of the monarch.

BCC reports that, Charles will be officially proclaimed King on Saturday. This will happen at St James’s Palace in London, in front of a ceremonial body known as the Accession Council.

This is made up of members of the Privy Council – a group of senior MPs, past and present, and peers – as well as some senior civil servants, Commonwealth high commissioners, and the Lord Mayor of London.
