Queen Elizabeth II is dead. The royal family has announced that she died peacefully at her Balmoral estate in Scotland at the age of 96. Now the monarch's son is king. Charles III he will return to London today with his wife Camilla, the Queen Consort. Heir apparent Prince William and his wife Kate have also received new titles.
William could also become the "Prince of Wales" and his wife the "Princess of Wales". Prince William's late mother, Princess Diana (1961-1997), was previously titled Princess of Wales. Out of respect, Camilla had refrained from leading it. The title of Prince of Wales does not pass to William immediately upon the death of his grandmother: it must be bestowed upon him by the king. King Charles III held the title of Prince of Wales, along with the titles of Duke of Cornwall and Duke of Rothesay, until the Queen's death on Thursday.
The Queen's closest family, including her four children and Prince William, traveled to Scotland to be at the head of the family's side before her death. According to the British "Daily Mail", her grandson Prince Harry (37) only arrived at Balmoral Castle after the news of his grandmother's death.
