Charles, the eldest son and heir to late Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II, has become king upon her de@th.
The Queen was last seen publicly when she received the new British Prime Minister, Liz Truss. Charles, Prince of Wales, is the heir apparent to the British throne as the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
The 73-year-old has been heir apparent as well as Duke of Cornwall and Duke of Rothesay since 1952 and is both the oldest and the longest-serving heir apparent in British history. The throne passed immediately and without ceremony to the heir, Charles.
He will be known as King Charles III. That 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. There will also be a new title for Charles’ wife, whose full title will be Queen Consort.
