2 Days after the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, we saw the first glimpse of the Royal Pomp and Pageantry. Day 2 of Carolean showed us the Royal Mantra of ‘The Show must go on”. From Pomp and Pageantry to meeting with the public who gathered outside the various Royal houses, it turned out to be a busy day. (Once again the events discussed below are in descending order).

The plan has always been for the Queen to be privately buried alongside her father, King George VI, mother, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, and sister, Princess Margaret. Her dearest Philip will be brought from the Royal Vault and buried with his wife of 73 years, reunited again.

The first act was the meeting of the ancient Accession Council at St. Jame’s Palace to proclaim Charles as the new King of The United Kingdom and realms.  The Accession Council met after 70 years. The last meeting was in 1952.

Earlier in the morning The Prince of Wales and The Queen Consort participated in the first part of the Accession Council meeting with the Prime Minister, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Archbishop of York, and the Earl Marshall.

The Accession council has approximately 700 members but given the small space of the Picture Gallery of St. James’ Palace, only 200 of the most senior members were present that included the Current Prime Minister Liz Truss, and 6 Former Prime Ministers.

In the first part, formal announcements of the death of the Monarch and proclaiming the succession of the new Sovereign were made and certain consequential Orders of Council mainly related to the Proclamation were insured. Monarch does not attend the first part. The Prince of Wales and The Queen Consort were present.

In the second part, King Charles III joined the accession council where after formally declaring the demise of his beloved mother Queen Elizabeth II, he made his declaration and took the Oath relating to the security of the Church of Scotland. The Transcript of King Charles III’s declaration is as follows:

My lords, ladies, and gentlemen.

It is my most sorrowful duty to announce to you the death of my beloved mother, the queen.

I know how deeply you, the entire nation — and I think I may say the whole world — sympathize with me in the irreparable loss we have all suffered. It is the greatest consolation to me to know of the sympathy expressed by so many to my sister and brothers and that such overwhelming affection and support should be extended to our whole family in our loss.

To all of us as a family, as to this kingdom and the wider family of nations of which it is a part, my mother gave an example of lifelong love and of selfless service. My mother’s reign was unequaled in its duration, its dedication, and its devotion. Even as we grieve, we give thanks for this most faithful life.

I am deeply aware of this great inheritance and of the duties and heavy responsibilities of sovereignty that have now passed to me. In taking up these responsibilities, I shall strive to follow the inspiring example I have been set in upholding constitutional government and to seek the peace, harmony, and prosperity of the peoples of these islands and of the Commonwealth realms and territories throughout the world.

In this purpose, I know that I shall be upheld by the affection and loyalty of the peoples whose sovereign I have been called upon to be and that in the discharge of these duties I will be guided by the counsel of their elected parliaments. In all this, I am profoundly encouraged by the constant support of my beloved wife.

I take this opportunity to confirm my willingness and intention to continue the tradition of surrendering the hereditary revenues, including the crown estate, to my government for the benefit of all, in return for the sovereign grant, which supports my official duties as head of state and head of the nation.

And in carrying out the heavy task that has been laid upon me, and to which I now dedicate what remains to me of my life, I pray for the guidance and help of almighty God.

Three cheers were made for the new King.  The new king formally approved a series of orders, including one declaring the day of his mother’s funeral as a public holiday.
