Charles III was formally proclaimed king at a historic ceremony at St James’s Palace on Saturday morning.

Flags which were lowered in mourning for the late Queen are flying at full mast after the Accession Council, which was televised for the first time.

A period of national mourning is now in place and will last until the end of the day of the Queen’s state funeral on Monday, 19 September.
