“God Save the King” – as the new King Charles III. Arriving at Buckingham Palace in London on Friday afternoon, thousands of people there shouted at him, “God save the king.”
Charles got out at the palace gates to greet the crowd. He shook countless hands and accepted expressions of sadness. He thanked the people for their compassion.
Hundreds in the front row tried to capture the new king with their cell phone cameras. A woman kissed the hand of the monarch. Another even kissed him on the cheek—actually a violation of royal protocol, but Charles didn’t seem upset: he smiled.

Royal consort Camilla also shook countless hands. She was wearing a black dress and a pearl necklace.
