King Charles Issues His First Statement As King Of England


Prince Charles who is now the king of England, following the death of his mother, has released his first statement as monarch.

The statement which was posted to the royal family’s official Twitter page shortly after the queen’s death was announced described this period as “moment of the greatest sadness”

“We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished Sovereign and a much-loved Mother,” it reads.

“I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.”

The new king ended the statement by noting that he and his family will be comforted by the knowledge of how loved and respected the queen was.

The death of Queen Elizabeth  at Balmoral earlier today, brought an end the longest reign in British history. She was also the world’s oldest head of state and more widely travelled than any other world leader.

Born Princess Elizabeth Elizabeth Alexandra Mary in in London on 21 April 1926, she became Queen in 1952 at the age of 25, when her father, King George VI, died.

During a radio address on her 21st birthday in 1974, she pledged her life to the service of the Commonwealth.

“I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong,” she said.
