Death of Queen Elizabeth: King Charles heads to London to address nation

Britain’s new monarch King Charles III has begun his journey from Balmoral to London, following the death of his mother the Queen.

The grief-stricken King was glimpsed for the first time since his accession to the throne as he departed Birkhall, his private home on the Balmoral estate, by car at around 11.15am on Friday.

With Camilla, his new Queen Consort, in the front passenger seat, Charles sat in the back, dressed in his mourning clothes of a black suit and tie, looking sombre as he headed to Aberdeen Airport.

The King is flying to London where he is expected to address the nation on television on Friday evening, and hold his first audience with new Prime Minister Liz Truss.
