King Charles III Has Released A Statement About The Death Of Queen Elizabeth II
The phrase “the end of an era” has never been more fitting until today when Queen Elizabeth II, who was a constant in many of our entire lives, died at 96. THE QUEEN is dead, long live her Corgis. As soon as THE QUEEN took her last breath, her eldest Prince Charles technically became King Charles III. And he mourned the loss of his mother in a statement today.
Here is King Charles’ tribute to his mother:
Britain’s new Prime Minister, Liz Truss, also said words of praise for Her Majesty and added words of support for their new monarch, His Majesty, King Charles III. And Clarence House confirmed that Britain’s new monarch will be known as King Charles III.
"Queen Elizabeth II was the rock on which modern Britain was built"

Never mind that I’ll have to constantly remind myself to not type “Prince Charles” anymore, I’ll also have to constantly remind myself to not type “Cavalier” after King Charles. The BBC says that within the next 24 hours, Charles will officially be crowned King “at St James’s Palace in London, in front of a ceremonial body known as the Accession Council.” And King Charles will formally be crowned in his coronation ceremony, which isn’t expected to happen for at least a few months.
In addition to Charles becoming King Charles III, Duchess Camilla will now be known as Queen Consort, and Prince William and Duchess Kate will be known as the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall. When Charles formally becomes King, William and Kate will be the Prince and Princess of Wales, titles that were held by Charles and Princess Diana.
Below are more tributes to THE QUEEN from world leaders and Dame Helen Mirren, who as we know, won the Oscar for playing Queen Elizabeth II:
The death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth is a profoundly sad moment for the UK, the Commonwealth and the world.
Her life was one of extraordinary dedication and service.
On behalf of the people of Scotland, I convey my deepest condolences to The King and the Royal Family. https://t.co/o2XqGJMF2S

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II embodied the British nation’s continuity and unity for over 70 years. I remember her as a friend of France, a kind-hearted queen who has left a lasting impression on her country and her century.
