King Charles III officially proclaimed in historic televised ceremony

Political Editor

Charles has officially been proclaimed King Charles III, following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

This was perhaps the most British of days, when high ceremony and age-old tradition formed the backdrop to a new era – King Charles III declaring himself ready to take on the “heavy responsibilities of Sovereignty”.

The King was officially proclaimed as monarch, he delivered a declaration to the Accession Council – which included senior politicians and all six former Prime Ministers – and was televised for the first time in history.
