William, now known as the Prince of Wales, said, “On Thursday, the world lost an outstanding leader, whose devotion to the country, the Realms, and the Commonwealth was total.
The significance of her historic reign will be discussed in great detail in the coming days. “.
But my grandmother passed away recently. While I will miss her, I also feel tremendous gratitude. The Queen’s wisdom and assurance have been helpful to me as I enter my fifth decade.
For twenty years, she has advised and helped my wife. My three kids were able to spend the holidays with her and create lifelong memories thanks to her.
The reality of living without Grannie won’t fully sink in for a while, but I knew this day would come. She was there for me on both my happiest and saddest days.
“I thank her for the consideration she extended to my family and myself, and I thank her on behalf of my generation for setting an example of duty and respect in public life that was rooted in a previous era but was always applicable to all of us,” he said in his closing remarks.
“The famous proverb, ‘Grief is the price we pay for love,’ is attributed to my grandma. All of our sorrow over the coming weeks will directly result from our love for our magnificent Queen. I will do everything in my power to assist my father, The King, in paying tribute to her memory.
King Charles announced their new titles and expressed his pride in giving his eldest son and successor the title in his historic speech to the nation the day before.
Kate is the first person to hold the title since Diana, Princess of Wales, who did so during her marriage to Charles, demonstrating that William is continuing in his father’s footsteps.
At the age of nine, the Queen appointed Charles the Prince of Wales, and he served in that capacity for more than 64 years.
The Prince of Wales and the Princess of Wales, as “our new Prince and Princess of Wales,” “will continue to inspire and lead our national dialogues, helping to bring the marginal to the centre ground where crucial help may be given,” said Charles. “.
The King said that the Scottish titles that have meant so much to me now belong to William as my heir. He takes over the responsibilities I’ve held for the Duchy of Cornwall for more than 50 years and succeeds me as Duke of Cornwall.
The nation whose title I have had the great honour to wear for a sizable portion of my life and service, I am honoured to entitle him Prince of Wales, Tywysog Cymru, today.
“With Catherine by his side, I have faith that our new Prince and Princess of Wales will continue to inspire and direct our national discourse, helping to bring the underrepresented to the fore where important assistance may be offered. “.
Buckingham Palace announced that the 96-year-old monarch passed away on Thursday at Balmoral.
The Queen died peacefully this afternoon at Balmoral, according to the statement. The King and the Queen Consort will spend this evening at Balmoral before returning to London. “.
Earlier Thursday, Prince William drove the Duke of York, the Earl of Wessex, and the Countess of Wessex to the Queen’s official residence in Balmoral.
While their mother, Kate, 40, was in Windsor, her three children—Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis—went to school for the first time.
The Queen, who had four children, eight grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, and twelve great-great-grandchildren, is survived by a loving family of grandchildren and great-grandchildren, including Peter Phillips, Zara Tindall, Prince William, the Duke of Sussex, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Lady Louise Windsor, and Viscount Severn.
Prince William once said, “She may be my grandmother, but she’s also very much the boss.
