But now, nearly a month after the Queen’s passing and Charles’ inheriting the throne, one question remains: What’s going on with the new King?

The long-standing heir apparent, now made King, has recently been seen with his wife and new Queen, Camilla, in Scotland. The two were greeted by a pipe band, school children, and hundreds coming out to see them.

The King has yet to be officially coronated as the new King of England, but according to an article written by Bloomberg, that will change in June 2023, as UK Officials have stated. 

As King, however, there are still duties in which Charles must attend to for the sake of everyone. One such example of this is the climate change conference taking place in Egypt.

However, Buckingham Palace announced that the King would not be attending this event against the wishes of Egyptian officials that warned the UK to “not backtrack” on the global climate crisis. 

In lighter news, the King has announced his first State Visit to Buckingham Palace, inviting the President of the Republic of South Africa to the UK from November 22nd to November 24th this year.
