LEAD IN :

King Charles III became monarch immediately upon his mother’s death.

The week that followed the news of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II and his accession to the throne, has seen the new king proclaimed as monarch and travel to Scotland and Northern Ireland to meet the public.

STORYLINE:

A week ago King Charles III arrived at Buckingham Palace for the first time as Britain’s monarch, after the death of his mother Queen Elizabeth II on 8th September.

The king flew to London from Scotland and was driven to the royal residence in an official Bentley. A large crowd cheered as the car arrived at the palace gates.

He got out of the car to greet well-wishers and look at some of the huge pile of floral tributes left to honour his mother.

Some called “Thank you Charles” and “Well done, Charlie!” as he shook hands with the crowd. Several shouted “God save the King!”

A few broke into a rendition of Britain’s national anthem, which is now titled “God Save the King.”

Later that day he met with Britain’s new Prime Minister Liz Truss at Buckingham Palace.

In the evening he gave an address to Britain and the Commonwealth as monarch.

On Saturday (10 September), Charles was officially proclaimed Britain’s monarch in a pomp-filled ceremony steeped in ancient tradition and political symbolism in London.

Charles, who spent seven decades as heir apparent, automatically became king when his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, died.

But the accession ceremony was a key constitutional and ceremonial step in introducing the new monarch to the country, a relic of a time before mass communications.

Then it was back to business and a meeting with dignitaries including the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and government ministers.

On Sunday (11 September)  King Charles III was formally proclaimed the monarch in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

In Edinburgh, the proclamation was followed by a gun salute and a military band playing the anthem, “God Save the King.”

Similar ceremonies took place in Belfast and at Cardiff Castle.

Earlier, proclamations were held in other parts of the Commonwealth - the group of former British Empire colonies - including Australia and New Zealand.

The king addressed a gathering at Westminster Hall on Monday (12 September)  expressing gratitude to the condolences over the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

Hundreds of lawmakers crowded into the 1,000-year-old Westminster Hall at the Houses of Parliament for the service, rich in pageantry, in which Parliament offered its condolences to the king, and he replied.

Later on Monday King Charles arrived in Edinburgh to accompany his late mother’s coffin on an emotion-charged procession through the historic heart of the Scottish capital.

Charles and his wife Camilla, the Queen Consort, travelled to the royal family’s official residence in Edinburgh, the Palace of Holyroodhouse, where Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin lay overnight in the Throne Room.

There, King Charles was presented with the ceremonial keys to the city of Edinburgh.

Queen Elizabeth II’s four children walked silently behind, as a hearse carried her flag-draped coffin, along a crowd-lined street in the Scottish capital to a cathedral, where a service of thanksgiving hailed the late monarch as a “constant in all of our lives for over 70 years”.

King Charles III, dressed in army uniform, and his siblings Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward walked behind as the hearse travelled to St. Giles’ Cathedral.

Inside the church, the coffin was placed on a wooden stand and topped with the golden Crown of Scotland.

Charles and his siblings later stood in silent vigil at the church, lowering their heads as they stood at four sides of their mother’s oak coffin alongside members of the Royal Company of Archers.

As they performed the traditional vigil, members of the public filed past.

About 33,000 people filed silently past the Queen’s coffin in 24 hours at St. Giles’ Cathedral.

On Tuesday (13 September) the king visited Belfast for the first time as monarch.

Sinn Fein Vice President Michelle O’Neill told King Charles III on Tuesday that “she was sorry” for the new monarch’s loss of his mother Queen Elizabeth II.

During a meeting at Hillsborough Castle in Belfast, she also said that the late monarch had “played a great role here in terms of reconciliation”.

O’Neill’s Sinn Fein is a nationalist party that wants Northern Ireland to leave the United Kingdom and become part of the Republic of Ireland.

The British monarchy draws mixed emotions in Northern Ireland, where Protestant unionists consider themselves British and Roman Catholic nationalists see themselves as Irish.

The political and religious divisions fuelled three decades of violence known as “the Troubles,” involving paramilitary groups on both sides and UK security forces, in which 3,600 people died.

Alex Maskey, a member of Sinn Fein and the speaker of Northern Ireland’s Assembly, praised Queen Elizabeth II’s role in the peace process, in a message of condolence to King Charles III.

He said that queen had helped “break down barriers and encourage reconciliation” in Northern Ireland.

Later on Tuesday a crowd cheered King Charles III and the Queen Consort, as they departed St. Anne’s Cathedral in Belfast after attending a service of reflection for his late mother.

The leaders of Britain and Ireland joined politicians from Northern Ireland in the congregation.

They included British Prime Minister Liz Truss, her Irish counterpart Micheal Martin and Irish President Michael D. Higgins.

Clergy praised the queen’s role in helping bring peace to Northern Ireland.

On Wednesday (14 September) Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin arrived at Westminster Hall amid sombre pageantry on a horse-drawn gun carriage past crowds of mourners to the Houses of Parliament, where the late monarch will lie in state for four days.

King Charles III, Anne, Princess Royal, Prince Edward and Prince Andrew, as well as the king’s children, Princes William and Harry, walked behind the late monarch’s coffin.

The coffin was draped in the Royal Standard and topped with the Imperial State Crown – adorned with almost 3,000 diamonds -- and a bouquet of flowers and plants including pine from the Balmoral Estate, where Elizabeth died last week.

The 38-minute procession ended at Westminster Hall, where Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby led a service attended by Charles and other royals.

The 900-year-old Westminster Hall is now the focus of events, as the queen lies in state until Monday (19 September).

On Thursday (15 September) King Charles III spent a day in private to reflect on his first week on the throne.

The King will visit Wales on Friday (16 September). It will be the last of his visits to all four nations of the United Kingdom as monarch.
