England’s new king Charles has released his first official statement since ascending the throne.
King Charles III of England First Statement:
King Charles’s statement was released after the death of his mother Queen Elizabeth.
Her death comes barely 24 hours after the 96-year-old monarch pulled out of a Privy Council meeting, which was to be held virtually, after her doctors advised her to rest.
The death of my beloved mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family.
During this period of mourning and change, my family and i will be comforted and sustained by our knowledge of respect and deep affection in which the Queen The Queen was so widely held.
This is breaking news.
