The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.  The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.

So is Prince Charles automatically King or is he acting King until an investiture ceremony

This has never happened in my life.

It’s amazing she received the new Prime Minister just two days ago.

Say what you will about her but there is something to be said for her mere constancy in a constantly evolving world.

She was literally always…there….until today.

This has never happened in my life.

he became king the second the queen died.  there will be an official coronation ceremony when the crown is formally put on his head, but all rights and duties of the throne became his the moment his mother died.

sorta like how the president-elect becomes president at noon on Jan 20, regardless of whether the oath of office has been taken yet.

Marciano Cantero

Singer/bassist from an Argentine band (Enanitos Verdes) that made an impression on me in the late 80s. They toured the US successfully for decades. I think the last place they played around here was Fillmore a couple of months ago. (Actually seems like August 7!)

It may be morbid, pun intended, but I feel bad for anyone famous, who dies within the next week.
