Congratulatory messages from around the world are pouring into London following the official proclamation of Charles III as the UK’s new King.
President of the European Council Charles Michel has wished the new British monarch “a successful and glorious reign.”
King Felipe VI of Spain sent this message:
On the auspicious occasion of the proclamation of your accession to the throne, I wish to extend to your Majesty, on my behalf and on behalf of the Spanish Government and people, our sincere congratulations.
Even the Russian President Vladimir Putin sent his wishes, saying: “Please accept my sincere congratulations on your accession to the throne. I wish Your Majesty success, good health and all the best.”
Putin’s message comes as he is waging a war against Ukraine, a conflict in which the United Kingdom stands firmly on the side of Kyiv.
The UK has sent weapons to Kyiv and provided military training to help the country defend itself against the unprovoked Russian aggression.
Meanwhile, the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, also wished Charles well.
“On behalf of all Londoners, I wish our new monarch King Charles III every success as His Majesty takes on this momentous responsibility,” Khan said in a tweet.
