The new King of Britain, Charles III has officially named his first son, Williams and his wife, Kate, Prince and Princess of Wales.
The King made this announcement on Friday, 9th September 2022, as he addressed the United Kingdom for the first time, barely 24 hours after the demise of his mother, Queen Elizabeth.
In his address he said:
“As my Heir, William now assumes the Scottish titles which have meant so much to me. He succeeds me as Duke of Cornwall and takes on the responsibilities for the Duchy of Cornwall which I have undertaken for more than five decades,”
“Today, I am proud to create him Prince of Wales, Tywysog Cymru, the country whose title I have been so greatly privileged to bear during so much of my life and duty.”
“With Catherine beside him, our new Prince and Princess of Wales will, I know, continue to inspire and lead our national conversations, helping to bring the marginal to the Centre ground where vital help can be given.
The king, also, in what seems to be a reconciliation move, extended an olive branch to his youngest son Harry, by praising him and his wife, Meghan.
Until her death, the Queen was survived by four children; Charles, Anna, Andrew and Edward, and many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
The late Queen reigned for 70 years before her death, bringing an end to her reign and ushering in a new leadership to the Throne.
