Queen Elizabeth’s death ends popular rule and begins the era of King Charles

“The king (or queen) is dead, long live the king (or queen).”

Britons last heard these traditional words on the death of a monarch in 1952 when Queen Elizabeth II succeeded her father, King George VI. No one under 70 today could remember his glittering coronation at Westminster Abbey the following year, Britain’s 39th since 1066.
