After the death of Queen Elizabeth II – big changes: they will be felt by all residents of the United Kingdom

True, as reported by the Daily Mail, it may even take several years – new notes and coins will be produced with the image of the new King Charles III, while the older ones are gradually being phased out.

Currently, the Queen’s face on the coins faces to the right, while the latest coins will have the King facing left, in keeping with the tradition since the 17th century.

The words of the United Kingdom national anthem – “God save the king” – are also changing.

Queen Elizabeth II died on September 8

“The death of my beloved mother, Her Majesty the Queen, is a moment of greatest sadness for me and my family,” the statement said. “We mourn the death of a dear monarch and a much-loved mother.”

“During this time of mourning and change, my family and I will be comforted to know that the Queen was widely respected and loved,” the statement added.

Delphi reminds that he died on Thursday at the age of 97 United Kingdom queen elizabeth II, reported Buckingham Palace.

“The Queen passed away peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon,” the statement read.

Buckingham Palace announced her death in a brief statement. 10 days of national mourning has been declared.

Elizabeth II inherited the throne from her father in 1952. She ruled the UK for over 70 years.

After the death of Elizabeth II, her eldest son now takes the throne, prince charles. His wife Camilla will become Queen Consort. The couple will remain at Balmoral Castle on Thursday evening and return to London on Friday morning, according to Buckingham Palace.

The new king of the United Kingdom will be known as Charles III.

This is reported by the British national broadcaster BBC, based on an official statement.

It has previously been considered that the Queen’s heir may choose another royal name.

Charles’ eldest son William inherits the Dukedom of Cornwall and retains his current title of Duke of Cambridge.

Mr Truss calls for support for the new king

British Prime Minister Liz Truss expressed her condolences on Thursday over the death of the Queen and called on Britons to unite and support the new monarch, Charles III.

“Today the crown passes, as it has for over a thousand years, to our new monarch, our new head of state, His Majesty King Charles III,” the British prime minister said on Thursday.

“We must come together as a nation to support him and help him shoulder the enormous responsibility he carries for us all,” she added.

She called the dead Queen “the rock on which modern Britain was built”.

“Queen Elizabeth II gave us the stability and strength we needed,” Truss said.

Huge changes

Queen Elizabeth II ascended the throne at the age of just 25 in 1952 and entered a world scene dominated by political figures such as China’s Mao Zedong, Soviet leader Joseph Stalin and US President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Her 70-year reign spanned the turn of two centuries, a time of great social, political and technological upheaval.

Globally, the last vestiges of Britain’s vast empire have crumbled, at home Brexit has shaken the foundations of her kingdom, and members of her family have faced a string of scandals.

But all the while, Elizabeth II remained popular and was the queen and head of state not only of the United Kingdom, but also of 14 former British colonies, including Australia, Canada and New Zealand.

She also presided over the Commonwealth of 56 countries, home to a quarter of humanity, and was the head of the Church of England, the mother church of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

But her death will also raise questions about whether the golden age of the British monarchy has yet to pass, how such an ancient institution can remain viable in modern times and whether Charles will command the same respect or rule in his mother’s shadow.

Official mourning

Television and radio stations interrupted their regular programs to announce the news, and special programs were made to commemorate her long life and reign.

When the news of the monarch’s death was announced, the national anthem “God Save the Queen” was played. Flags were flown at half-mast and church bells tolled in memory of the woman once described as “the world’s last monarch”.

National mourning will end with a final public farewell to the Queen at Westminster Abbey in central London.

Charles’ coronation, an elaborate ritual steeped in tradition and history, will take place in the same historic setting as it did centuries ago. The coronation date has not yet been announced.

Longevity

For most of her subjects, Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor was the only monarch they had ever known, an unchanging figure on stamps, banknotes and coins.

The pop culture icon-soon-to-be petite queen was instantly recognizable for her brightly colored suits and matching hats, pearl necklaces, gloves and handbags.

During her reign, the royal family went from stagnant, reclusive figures to tabloid targets before being re-popularized by series such as The Crown, enjoyed by tens of millions of viewers around the world.

Her time on the throne spanned an era of extraordinary change, from the Cold War to the 9/11 attacks, from climate change to the coronavirus, from paper letters and steamships to email and space exploration.

It became the epitome of post-war Britain and the link between the modern era and the previous century.

As the matriarch of one of the world’s most famous families, she has always enjoyed huge public support and even weathered the backlash following the death of Charles’ first wife, Diana, in 1997.

The royal family was recently rocked by Prince Harry and his wife Meghan’s claims of racism within the royal family.

Harry, a former British army captain, and Meghan, a mixed-race American TV actress, were called the modern face of the monarchy after their wedding in 2018.

But less than two months later, they quit royal life and moved to the US, facing a string of accusations, including racism.

Elizabeth II also endured a scandal involving her second son, Prince Andrew, whose friendships with the late convicted sex offenders Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell sparked public outrage and resulted in a civil suit against him in the US for sexual assault. It was eventually discontinued.

“None of us will live forever”

Britain was forced to recognize the beginning of the end of her reign when she lost her beloved husband, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, in April 2021. They were married for 73 years.

But the palace had long since recognized her mortality, and the transition to Charles being on the throne was already well underway.

Charles, his eldest son prince williamwho is now heir apparent, and his wife Catherine have taken over more and more official duties from the Queen in recent years.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic and her advanced age, she has been forced to spend time at Windsor Castle, west of London.

However, behind the magnificent walls of the building, she continued to be restless, participating in video calls with representatives of the public.

In a rare televised speech during her first quarantine, she evoked the spirit of the Blitz in besieged Britain during the Second World War, which characterized her generation.

“We will meet again,” she said.

After Philip’s death and the pandemic subsided, the Queen returned to public duties, but age and ill health forced her to slow down.

After a night in the hospital in October 2021, due to some health tests, her performances became less frequent.

“None of us will live forever,” she told world leaders at a UN climate change summit, urging them to ensure a legacy for future generations.

One of her final, fateful acts was to resolve the unanswered question of succession by agreeing to Charles’s second wife, Camilla, being called Queen Consort.
