King Charles gives William, Kate new titles

  • On Friday, Buckingham Palace began a period of Royal Mourning.
  • King Charles delivered his first speech as reigning monarch with a message for his “darling mama.”
  • James Corden, Elton John and world leaders continued to mourn and pay tribute to the queen.

King Charles III, on the first full day of his reign following the death of Queen Elizabeth II Thursday, addressed the nation in a nearly 9-minute long pre-recorded message.

The new king paid respects to his mother, his queen — and the era in which she ruled — and commented on how his life will change going forward while promising to serve his people.

In a significant change for the royal family, the king also made Prince William and Duchess Kate Prince and Princess of Wales. He also expressed his love for Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, who stepped away from royal duties and left the U.K. in early 2020, citing what they said were the unbearable intrusions and racist attitudes of the British media.

Here’s the latest from the king’s address and everything that happened Friday following Queen Elizabeth’s death.
