The new Monarch of the UK Charles III paid tribute to his “darling mama” and called her an inspiration in his first address to the nation as king and vowed ‘lifelong service’ to the people.
“…To my darling mama, as you begin your last great journey to join my dear late papa, I want simply to say this- Thank you for your love and devotion to our family and to the family of nations you have served so diligently all these years..” King said. “May ‘flights of angels sing thee to thy rest’,” he added.
King Charles III in his pre-recorded speech addressed the mourning nation for the first time as the king after the demise of Queen Elizabeth II.
“I speak to you today with feelings of profound sorrow. Throughout her life, Her Majesty the Queen — my beloved Mother — was an inspiration and example to me and to all my family, and we owe her the most heartfelt debt any family can owe to their mother; for her love, affection, guidance, understanding and example.
“Queen Elizabeth was a life well lived; a promise with destiny kept and she is mourned most deeply in her passing. That promise of lifelong service I renew to you all today,” King Charles III said.
