After Queen Elizabeth’s Death and a chapter of the longest-ruling queen of Britain is closed now. The monarch who ruled over the nation for more than 70 years, Queen Elizabeth II passed away and the whole globe, but especially Britain, is in grief. The Queen died on Thursday at the age of 96 in Balmoral, soon after the rumors of her failing health had appeared. After his mother passed away, King Charles is now the next king of Britain.
At the time of Queen Elizabeth Death, she was 96 years old and she had a long and successful reign as Queen of the United Kingdom. Queen Elizabeth II was born on April 21st, 1926, in London. She became Queen of the United Kingdom on February 6th, 1952, after her father, King George VI, died. During her long reign, Queen Elizabeth II presided over many important changes in British society. She was instrumental in modernizing the country and bringing about major improvements to the way the government works.
She also played a major role in promoting British culture around the world. She was a longtime supporter of the arts and helped to bring about changes to British broadcasting that made it more diverse and inclusive. Queen Elizabeth II was an excellent representative of Britain overseas. She visited many different countries during her reign and built strong relationships with their leaders. This helped to improve relations between Britain and its allies.
Queen Elizabeth II is widely respected throughout the world and will be greatly missed by her people. Her legacy will continue to be felt for many years to come. There are a number of customary procedures that must be followed for the coronation of the next King even if the Royal family is now through a difficult time.
Impact of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign
Before Queen Elizabeth Death, she ruled the United Kingdom for more than 65 years and was an iconic figure in world history. Her long reign has had a profound impact on both the UK and the rest of the world. Here are five ways her reign has changed society:
1. The Monarchy Is More Popular Than Ever Before
Queen Elizabeth II was one of the first royals to embrace social media, and her presence helped to boost public support for the monarchy. Her popularity has only grown since she stepped down from public life in 2002. In 2016, an estimated 90% of Britons said they were happy with the way things were going in their country, compared to just 58% who said the same in 1997.
This positive sentiment may be due in part to Queen Elizabeth II’s legacy of promoting equality and diversity – she was one of the first royals to appoint a black woman as a member of her staff and she championed causes such as AIDS awareness and environmentalism.
2. The monarchy plays a more active role in politics
Since Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne, the monarchy has become much more involved in British politics. For example, Prince Charles has played an influential role in promoting reform of the NHS, while the Queen has hosted numerous state visits from around the world. This increased role for the monarchy has been controversial, with some arguing that it diminishes democracy and undermines the principle of separation of powers.
3. The UK is more stable and prosperous than ever before
Queen Elizabeth II’s long reign has had a positive impact on the economy of the UK. GDP growth has averaged 2.5% every year during her reign, compared to just 1.3% during the years leading up to it. This stability has helped to create jobs and boost wages – in 2017, median earnings in the UK were £27,000, which was 9% higher than they had been in 2007.
4. The UK is more diverse and inclusive than ever before
She has been a strong supporter of diversity and inclusion, both within the UK and internationally till Queen Elizabeth’s Death. For example, she appointed the first black woman to be a member of her staff and she championed causes such as AIDS awareness and environmentalism. Her popularity has helped to promote these values within British society, which is reflected in the fact that 60% of Britons say they are proud to be British, compared to just 47% who said the same in 1997.
King Charles Is Now the New King at The Age Of 73
King Charles has now become the next King of Britain after Queen Elizabeth’s Death. At 73 years old, he is now the oldest king to assume the throne. Camilla, his wife, is now known as the Future Queen. Charles III will be the monarch’s title. For the longest period in the British monarchy’s history, King Charles served as the heir apparent to the throne. When his mother was crowned Queen in 1952, he was three years old and immediately became the chosen successor.
King Charles has now ascended the throne, but within 24 hours of Queen Elizabeth’s passing, he will officially be crowned. The King is at Balmoral right now; on Thursday, he traveled there to spend time with his mother when she passed away. The event is held in front of the Accession Council, which is made up of senior MPs, both past and present, lords, senior government officers, Commonwealth high commissioners, and the Lord Mayor of London, in St. James’s Palace in London.
King Charles’ Statement Regarding the Death of His Mother
The King has since issued a statement on the Queen’s passing. “The passing of my loving mother, Her Majesty the Queen, is a time of the deepest sorrow for me and all members of my family,” he said. We deeply lament the loss of a beloved mother and beloved Sovereign.
“I am aware that the nation, the States, the Commonwealth, and a great number of people all over the world will be devastated by her passing. The statement continued, “My family and I will be comforted and strengthened through this time of loss and transition by our understanding of the respect and profound compassion in which The Queen was so universally praised.
King Charles is the New Head of the Commonwealth
King Charles now has the title of Head of the Commonwealth, a grouping of five autonomous nations, 14 of which will recognize him as their Head of state, as a result of his accession to the throne.
Australia, Canada, Papua New Guinea, Saint Lucia, Belize, Grenada, Jamaica, Saint Christopher and Nevis, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Tuvalu, the Bahamas, Antigua and Barbuda, Solomon Islands and New Zealand are among the 14 countries where he will be considered as the head of state.
Ceremony Of Crowning
During the official coronation, the new King will be crowned. However, the new king as delayed the ceremony because of the mounting and sad situation of her mother, Queen Elizabeth Death. The King has already ascended the throne, but his coronation is not required to take place right away. Queen Elizabeth’s accession to the throne occurred in 1952, but her coronation wasn’t until 1953.
The service is customarily conducted in Westminster Abbey under the direction of the Archbishop of Canterbury. King Charles will receive St. Edward’s Crown at the conclusion of the ceremony, making him the 40th monarch in history to do so.
