King Charles III pays tribute to Queen Elizabeth II in first statement as monarch

It was a seamless transition. Buckingham Palace simultaneously announced Queen Elizabeth’s death and the passing of the throne to the new King in just two sentences.

“The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon,” the palace said in a statement.

“The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”

Half an hour later, King Charles III made his first statement as monarch.

“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,” the statement from King Charles read.

“We deeply mourn the passing of a cherished Sovereign and a much-loved Mother.”

He said his family would be comforted by those around the world who adore his mother.
