Charles III is the new king of Great Britain

British Prime Minister Liz Truss announced that Prince Charles of Wales, who became king after the death of Elizabeth II, took the name Charles III.

Queen Elizabeth II’s eldest son Prince Charles of Wales has become the new monarch of the United Kingdom after his mother died on Thursday at the age of 96.

Charles, 73, is the oldest heir to ever ascend to the British throne. He became king at the time of his mother’s death, as tradition does not allow the country to have no monarch. However, it will still be a few months before his coronation. At the same time, within a day after the death of Elizabeth II, a special council will meet in the capital’s St. James’s Palace, whose members will officially announce that a new ruler has ascended the British throne.

The Council of Succession includes British Prime Minister Liz Truss, who took this post only on Wednesday, the heads of the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the kingdom, members of the Privy Council – an advisory body under the British monarch, the Lord Mayor of London, as well as high commissioners (ambassadors), representing in the United Kingdom Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Jamaica and a dozen other countries, the head of which is still formally the British monarch.

In a message released by Buckingham Palace in connection with the death of Elizabeth II, Charles is already named king, and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall Camilla, is queen consort.
