King Charles III was officially named the new British monarch at a televised ceremony on Saturday where he was accompanied by his wife, Queen Consort Camilla, and son Prince William, who is the new heir to the throne and holds his father’s former title, Prince of Wales. It was the first accession ceremony since 1952, when Queen Elizabeth ascended the throne, and the first one to ever be televised.
Today, Monday September 12, is the last official day of mourning for the UAE. On Friday, officials announced a three-day mourning period after the death of Queen Elizabeth. During the mourning period, flags across the UAE fly at half-mast. The UAE Royals also joined world leaders in paying tribute to the late British monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, whose funeral is to be held at Westminster Abbey on Monday, September 19 at 2pm (GST).
