King Charles to be formally proclaimed King on Saturday
With the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth, on Thursday, Charles automatically became the new British monarch. On Saturday, his new role will be officiated with a ceremony at St. James’s Palace in London.
According to New York Times, the televised ceremony will begin at 10 a.m London time.
Saturday’s event is known as Accession Day and is not a coronation. A coronation event, which is much more celebratory, will likely come months after the queen’s death.
As princess, Elizabeth served during World War II
