King’s speech so full of love
KING Charles III. Even two days later it takes a little getting used to.
This is not a reflection of our new monarch.
Just a measure of the Queen’s constant, comforting presence in all of our lives for 70 years and the void she left.
Charles gave us every confidence in his moving first speech that he will bring wisdom, skill and compassion to it.
We have occasionally feared he might be an active king, a risk to the future of our monarchy. But not anymore.
He is clearly aware of his role as an impartial head of state.
His TV speech was full of love: For Camilla, his Queen Consort. For William and Kate. For Harry and Meghan.
Also love and gratitude for his “dearest mom” and the example she set for him.
Charles ascends the throne on a tide of goodwill that was once difficult to imagine.
Diana fans used to be adamant they would never accept Camilla.
But over two decades, she’s won millions through the charm, wit and hard work that The Sun has so often seen up close.
The affection the couple now harbors was palpable at Buckingham Palace as they joined a cheering crowd singing God Save The King.
This should be a sobering moment for Republicans, who are certain the Queen’s death signals the endgame for our monarchy.
Likewise, the global outpouring of sorrow and love will stun those who still insist Britain is a small nation in decline:
Flags around the world at half mast. Honors in the capitals. Buildings lit with our Union flag. Three days of mourning. . . in Brasil.
Glorious praise from world leaders, world politics giants, rock stars, A-list actors.
your greatest achievement
Even Putin bizarrely sent his “condolences to the people of Britain”.
It’s not all just for the Queen.
It’s for the UK. She was, after all, “the rock on which modern Britain was built,” as Liz Truss told MPs yesterday.
Spare yourself a thought for the new PM. Her first five days may seem like an eternity.
She was elected on Monday, met the Queen, unveiled a huge energy rescue operation, handled Her Majesty’s death and welcomed the new King.
The Commons’ most moving tribute to the Queen was that of Boris Johnson.
He said she considers it her greatest achievement to have prepared her son so well to follow her standards of duty and service.
Boris is definitely right. At 73, our king has had decades to contemplate his accession to the throne.
He obviously spent them well and learned from the best ever.
