King Charles arrives at Buckingham Palace as a monarch for the first time

King Charles III arrived for the first time as Britain’s reigning monarch at Buckingham Palace, his new home, on Friday.

The 73-year-old king, who ascended to the throne on Thursday after the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth, aged 96, pulled up in a motorcade with his wife Camilla, the Queen Consort.

The couple flew from Balmoral to London this morning, where he and other members of the royal family gathered to mourn Queen Elizabeth.

Around 100 royal observers gathered at RAF Northolt to watch the arrival of the new monarch. Folders in hand, he was quickly ushered into a waiting vehicle.

Upon arrival at his new home, Charles is scheduled to meet Prime Minister Liz Truss at 6 p.m. local time before his pre-recorded address to the nation.

Although he succeeded his mother to the throne immediately after her death, the king’s reign will not officially begin until tomorrow when the Council of Accession meets at St James’s Palace.

Clarence House confirmed earlier today that the ceremony will be televised for the first time in history.

King Charles’ arrival at the palace marks the latest update in a whirlwind of change and uncertainty as Britain grapples with the loss of its longest-reigning monarch. In a statement released yesterday, Charles said: “We deeply mourn the passing of a esteemed sovereign and a well-loved mother.”
