King Charles and Camilla, Queen Consort
On September 27, King Charles announced that the Queen’s period of royal mourning was over.
To announce the news, the Royal shared a photographic portrait of the Queen, taken by Dorothy Wilding on February 26, 1952, 20 days after her accession to the throne, on the Royal Family’s Twitter account with the caption: “The period of mourning Royal after the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth is now complete.
The period of royal mourning following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth is now over.

As for King Charles’s aftermath, his coronation has yet to be announced, but royal biographer Hugo Vickers said we should know a date soon.
Speaking on ITV Hello Brittany on Tuesday September 20, Vickers, author of biographies of many 20th century figures including the Queen Mother, said he expects it to take place in the spring or summer of next year
It is also expected that the king will introduce a “lite” monarchy, meaning there could be fewer working members of the royal family. Prince Harry and Markle retired as senior members of the family in March 2020.
According to Vickers, the coronation of the newly appointed monarch should be shorter and smaller than that of the queen in 1953.
