For the First Time Since Princess Diana, There Is a New Princess of Wales

As the world continues to mourn the loss of the beloved Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth II son, Charles addressed his country for the first time as the King of England.

During his speech, King Charles III spoke about his mom from the blue drawing room at Buckingham Palace. “Queen Elizabeth’s was a life well lived. That promise of lifelong service I renew to you today.”

The King then went on to talk about each of his family members including his wife, Camilla, who is now known as the Queen Consort. “I know she will bring to the demands of her new role. The steadfast devotion to duty, on which I have come to rely on so much,” he said of his wife.

It is also the tradition that the reigning Monarch’s grandchildren are given the titles of prince and princess. However, it’s unclear if Harry and Meghan’s children will be given such titles like their cousins, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

As it has been widely reported, Harry and Meghan stepped down as senior members of the Royal family in 2020. They now live in California. 

Nonetheless, King Charles did address is youngest son and daughter-in-law during his speech. “I want also to express my love for Harry and Megan, as they continue to build their lives overseas,” he said.
