Charles III has taken oath as he was proclaimed UK monarch at an elaborate ceremony at St James’ Palace, London on Saturday.

The passing of Queen Elizabeth II, Charles’ mother, was formally announced by the Accession Council.

It was after then that Charles III was named as king.

About 200 people gathered in the room all then said, “God save the King”, before documents were signed.

Flags that were lowered in mourning for the late Queen will fly full-mast for a short time.

On September 9, King Charles had pledged to follow his “darling mama’s” life of service in his first address to the nation.

The Queen, the UK’s longest-reigning monarch, died peacefully at Balmoral Castle on Thursday afternoon at the age of 96.
