On September 8, 2022, Queen Elizabeth III passed away at the age of 96, at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. After this tragic event, King Charles III took the throne a day later after years of Preparation at the age of 73, which happened at St James’s Palace in London, in front of a ceremonial body, accession council.  Members present there were all made up of the Privy Council, a group of senior MPs, senior civil servants, Commonwealth high commissioners, and Lord Mayor of London. 

During the King’s First Declaration, he will have to attend a meeting of the Accession Council, present with the Privy Council. This will not swear him in as the British Monarch’s Reign but it will allow him to make an oath, preserving the Church of Scotland. When King Charles III is officially declared King by a Fanfare Of Trumpeters, it will be present on a balcony right above Friary Court in St James Palace. After he officially becomes King, the national anthem will play “God Save The King ” for the first time since 1952. 

Before his lavish life of becoming King, He met his former wife, Princess Diana. They both married six months after they had been engaged, in a lavish royal wedding in St. Paul’s Cathedral, carrying on with their two sons Prince Willliam and Prince Harry. During this relationship, people knew they were not a good match due to the fact that he was having an affair with Camilla which led to them divorcing in the year of 1996. After a few years, Charles and Camilla married in a Civil Ceremony in 2005 after the change of the Church of England’s rules about remarriage. After taking the throne, King Charles III became the head of the Commonwealth, which engaged in 56 independent countries and 2.4 billion people. King Charles III will rule over many countries in addition to the UK such as Australia, New Zealand, Barbuda, and many other countries.
