When will Charles officially become king?

Charles automatically became king upon the death of his mother, but an accession council is usually convened at St James’s Palace in London within 24 hours of the death of a sovereign.

It will be later after the Queen’s death, as the announcement of her death didn’t come until early Thursday evening, meaning there wasn’t enough time to get plans going for Friday morning.

Therefore, on Saturday, September 10, Charles will be officially proclaimed King at the Accession Council. King Charles III sends a message to Harry and Meghan Markle in his first speech as monarch
