New British Monarch King Charles III will make his first speech as King today according to his spokesperson.

The following day it is expected that Charles will be formally proclaimed King although technically he became King the moment the Queen died.

The ceremony will take place at St James's Palace in London in front of a ceremonial body known as the Accession Council.

At the meeting, the death of Queen Elizabeth will be announced and a traditional proclamation will be read aloud.

King Charles will then attend a second meeting with the group where he will make his first declaration and swear an oath to preserve the Church of Scotland. After trumpeting and fanfare, he will be formally declared the new King as gun salutes are fired from sites around the city.
