King Charles delivers first address to Parliament

King Charles has delivered his first address to Parliament as monarch.

He described it as a “living and breathing instrument of our democracy” and referenced Westminster’s many connections with his mother the late Queen.

MPs and peers rose to sing the national anthem – heralding the next stage of the journey for King Charles, who travelled to RAF Northolt for the short flight up to Edinburgh to join other royals as the Queen’s coffin is conveyed along the city’s Royal Mile.
