After the Queen's death
The new monarch is King Charles III.
After the death of the Queen, her eldest son is now king. The new monarch calls himself Charles III.
Britain's new monarch calls himself King Charles III. This was confirmed by Prime Minister Liz Truss (47). She said according to British media reports: "Today - as it has been for more than a thousand years - the crown will be passed on to our new monarch, our new head of state: His Majesty King Charles III."
Charles could have chosen to rule under a different name, just like many previous kings and queens.
Liz Truss also paid tribute to the late Queen in a message as "the rock on which our country was built": "Britain is the great country it is today because of her. She was the true spirit of Great Britain." This will remain.
