London: Charles III will be officially proclaimed monarch Saturday morning at an Accession Council meeting, Buckingham Palace said.
The formal body overseeing Queen Elizabeth II’s succession will meet at 10:00 AM (0900 GMT), with a first public ruling from a balcony of St James’s Palace in London at 11:00 AM.
Earlier, King Charles III left the remote royal estate in Balmoral, in northeastern Scotland, where his mother Queen Elizabeth II died, on Friday, en route to London.
