King Charles III became the oldest person to ascend to the British throne on Thursday, following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, at the age of 96. Charles, 73, was born at Buckingham Palace in London on November 14, 1948, and had been heir to the throne since 1952, by far the longest wait in the history of the British royal family. The new monarch made headlines in 1981 after marrying Lady Diana Spencer, later known as the Princess of Wales. The wedding was seen by 750 million people across 74 countries. The couple went on to have two children, Princes William and Harry. After just a few years, the marriage began to show signs of strain, inevitably leading to divorce. Not long after, Diana, who was often described as the ‘people’s princess’ was tragically killed in a car accident in Paris in 1997. In 2005, Charles married Camilla Parker Bowles, who he had known for 35 years. Parker Bowles, formerly the Duchess of Cornwall, now holds the title of ‘Queen Consort’ following an announcement made by Queen Elizabeth II during the 70th anniversary of her accession to the throne earlier this year. Currently, no date has been set for the coronation of the new king.–
