They looked at the numerous bouquets and messages at Buckingham Palace. They shook numerous hands – and there was also a kiss.

London – “God Save the King” – as the new King Charles III. When he arrived at Buckingham Palace in London, thousands of people shouted at him: God save the king.

Charles disembarked at the palace gates to greet the crowd. He shook countless hands and accepted expressions of grief. He thanked the people for their sympathy. Hundreds in the front row tried to capture the new king with their cellphone cameras. A woman kissed the monarch on the cheek – actually a breach of royal protocol, but Charles didn’t seem upset; he smiled.

Camilla (Queen Consort) also shook numerous hands. She wore a black dress and a pearl necklace. Together, the two then looked at the numerous bouquets of flowers and messages that people had left in front of the palace since Thursday evening. The two then walked to their new official residence. Charles previously lived in Clarence House a few hundred yards away.
