Prince Charles is now officially King Charles after the sad passing of Queen Elizabeth II at the age of 96.
Even though King Charles won’t be crowned for some months (more on that later), he took the throne the moment Queen Elizabeth passed away.
Sam Knight said that Charles’s siblings will “kiss his hands” as soon as he becomes king in a lengthy article for The Guardian about what will occur in the days after the Queen’s passing. At six o’clock in the evening, he will address the country.

Charles will meet with the prime minister Liz Truss and other government officials for a briefing after being proclaimed king by the “accession council” at 10 a.m. tomorrow (although it bears noting that he officially became a king the moment his mother passed). He would apparently travel to the UK for a quick trip two days later.
The Daily Mail claims that there are “binders and binders” of papers related to Charles’ upcoming coronation, code-named “Operation Golden Orb.”
“It’s very complex,” a source told the Daily Mail back in February 2022. “The Golden Orb committee used to meet twice a year, but now they’re meeting much more frequently, sometimes once a month. Compared to the last coronation, there will be a lot less fuss.
Last time, special green chairs were commissioned and guests were able to have them delivered to their homes afterward. You won’t see that sort of thing this time.”
Again, the coronation will likely take place up to a year following the Queen’s death, to allow for both planning and a suitable mourning period.
