With the announcement of Queen Elizabeth II’s death at 96, Prince Charles became the next new King of England.
Queen Elizabeth II’s first-born son, Prince Charles, has been officially proclaimed as the next new King of the United Kingdom.
The succession of King Charles was announced after Buckingham Palace announced the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, on September 8 at the age of 96.
“The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and the Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and return to London tomorrow.”
Since July 1958, Prince Charles has been titled Prince of Wales, and now, following his mother’s death, Charles has made it concrete being the oldest and the long-serving in the history of British.
After his father, Prince Philip, passed away in April 2021, the title of Duke of Edinburgh was passed down to Charles, through which he got to get involved in his royal duties, representing the Queen at events like the Royal Maundy Service in April 2022 and the Remembrance Sunday Service in November 2021.
Charles’s wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, gained the title of “Queen Consort,” which was given to her by the Queen in February 2022 due to the shift in the monarchy. Previously, she was referred to as HRH the Duchess of Cornwall rather than adopting the title of Princess of Wales, which was intimately connected with the late Princess Diana, Charles’ first wife.
“When, in the fullness of time, my son Charles becomes King, I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support that you have given me,”

According to Queen Elizabeth –II’s statement on February 5 she said,
“When, in the fullness of time, my son Charles becomes King, I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support that you have given me, And it is my sincere wish that, when that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service.”
Charles and Camilla officially received the “honour” the next day, on the Platinum Jubilee, or the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s Accession Day.
On Charles becoming King of the United Kingdom, his eldest son, Prince William, will be the next heir to the British throne.
Queen Elizabeth II has been considered the longest-serving monarch for over 70 years.
