The St. Edward's Crown has been taken out of the Tower of London to be modified for the coronation ceremony next year. Charles became the UK's reigning monarch following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth.
Britain and the world reflected on Queen Elizabeth II's legacy and role in shaping the world during her reign. Her funeral is expected to take place within 10 days.
King Charles III is so far enjoying a "remarkable upsurge in public support" after his mother’s death, but it remains to be seen whether this will last. That's the view of Sean Lang, a senior lecturer in history at Anglia Ruskin University, who specialises in the history of the British Empire. He added that there may be a "snowball effect" if one or more countries decide to remove the British monarch as head of state, but that the Commonwealth itself has a bright future ahead.
Queen Elizabeth II passed away last week after reigning for 70 years over a Commonwealth of Nations that included Barbados until November 2021, when the country became a republic. In an interview with FRANCE 24, Prime Minister Mia Mottley said the queen "did extraordinary well as the head of the United Kingdom and, indeed, as head of the Commonwealth".
King Charles III has been visiting Northern Ireland on the latest leg of his tour after the death of Queen Elizabeth II. Meanwhile, police are facing criticism over their treatment of anti-monarchy protesters.
