New Monarch of Britain, King Charles III, signed a series of ministerial meetings today as the mourning son returns to work after the mother and Queen’s historic funeral on Monday.
For the past 70 years, Queen Elizabeth has approved new government roles, but that responsibility now falls to Charles in one of his many jobs as King.
King’s mother rested at St George’s Chapel in Windsor on Monday.
During the final military Procession, King Charles led the sombre march on Monday. King was seen with teary eyes during the funeral.
The Royal Family is now keeping another week of mourning after the national mourning period ended.
King Charles III flew to Scotland with his wife Camilla, the Queen Consort, where they grieved privately.
His appointments include Mims Davies to the Home Office, Sarah Atherton to Defence, Dean Russell to Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, David Duguid to the Scotland Office, Gareth Johnson, Rob Butler, and Mike Freer to the Ministry of Justice.
Sarah Dines, Nigel Huddleston, Amanda Solloway and Adam Holloway have been made Government whips, while Lia Nici, Darren Henry, Damien Moore, Jacob Young and Mark Jenkinson become assistant whips.
The final day of Queen’s Funeral began with the last respects being paid at Westminster Hall, waiting in queues for more than 17 hours. King Charles III and his siblings Princess Anne and Princess Andrew and Edward walked together in the Military procession.
As the funeral procession entered the abbey, world leaders, politicians and foreign royalty stood as her coffin was carried up the aisle to be placed on a catafalque, draped in the royal standard with the Imperial State Crown, orb and sceptre on top.
About 100 presidents and heads of the government joined the 2,000-strong congregation at the abbey, as well as US President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, and there were French President Emmanuel Macron, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol and Chinese Vice-President Wang Qishan.
