King Charles formally declared King on this day last year – what happened

King Charles III formally declared as King on this day last year in London.

September 10, 2022 marks the day that the King was formally declared the title which he had waited for since he was a young boy – as the next in line to the throne.

As soon as a new sovereign succeeds the throne, they are formally proclaimed at the Accession Council.

His Majesty The King was formally proclaimed at the Accession Council, held at St James’s Palace.

Here, Express.co.uk takes a look back at this day, 365 days ago, and delves into what happened – and why.

Charles III automatically became King as soon as the late Queen died, but the Proclamation is a constitutional formality needed to formally recognise his sovereignty.

The day started with a meeting held by the Privy Council, who were summoned to the Accession Council.

The Accession Council is a ceremonial body that is made up of privy councillors.

Both the King and Queen Camilla, who was then still to be known as Queen Consort, were present.

Upon entering the meeting, the King first made a personal declaration about the late Queen.

The King also signed an oath to uphold the security of the Church in Scotland. His signature is witnessed in person by Queen Camilla and Prince William.

To mark the start of the new royal era, this was the first time that this particular part of welcoming a new monarch had been filmed.

After the Accession Council took place, the first public Proclamation was read in the open air from the Friary Court Balcony by the Garter King of Arms at St James’s Palace.

This was done in the presence of the Earl Marshal and two of the sovereign’s Serjeants at Arms.

Friday, September 8 marked the first anniversary of the late Queen’s death at Balmoral.

The King made the decision to remain at Balmoral, where he has been for the past few weeks, for the anniversary. The King and Queen Camilla attended a service at Crathie Parish Church, which is close to the Balmoral estate, on Friday.
