King Charles III was officially proclaimed Britain’s monarch on Saturday (September 10). Two days after the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, the former prince was elevated to the throne in an elaborate, centuries-old accession ceremony, which took place at St. James Palace and was broadcast live for the first time.

“I am deeply aware of this great inheritance and of the duties and heavy responsibilities of sovereignty which have now passed to me,” Charles said at the event, before referencing the loss of the Queen, who had recently celebrated her Platinum Jubilee. “I know how deeply you and the entire nation, and I think I may say the whole world, sympathize with me in this irreparable loss we have all suffered.”

British politicians, including the new Prime Minister Liz Truss, met at the state apartments at St. James’s Palace for the meeting of the Accession Council.
