Charles III swears oath in Proclamation Ceremony

Charles III swore an oath as he was proclaimed as King at a ceremony at St James's Palace. Charles became king immediately following the death of his mother Queen Elizabeth II, but a historic meeting formally confirmed his role on Saturday. The Accession Council, a body made up of senior politicians, judges and officials, proclaimed him as the monarch in the State Apartments. It is the first time the historic ceremony has been televised.
