Elizabeth II: King Charles III fulfills one of his mother’s last wishes

King Charles III, if not yet officially crowned, applies himself to carry out his duties with the greatest dedication, and especially to enforce the last wishes of the Queen, as heir to the Crown. As reported by The Mirror, this Saturday, November 12, 2022, he fulfilled one of the last wishes of his mother this week.

Since the death of Queen Elizabeth II, on September 8, Charles has brilliantly put on the costume of king, and is doing the official travel, and administrative paperwork. But the new sovereign also has the job of enforcing the last instructions of his mother, and the documents that she herself approved before her death. As The Mirror explains, on this November 12, 2022, King Charles III has offered the National Order of Merit to six people chosen by his mother before her death.

At the beginning of September, before she tragically lost her strength, Queen Elizabeth II was still at work and in full capacity: she had then granted for the last time in her life, the precious decoration to six personalities from the world of arts, sciences and culture. Among them were a molecular biologist, a geneticist, an architect, a nurse, a historian and a television presenter and writer. King Charles III followed his mother’s last wishes to the letter, and proceeded with this ceremony in honor of his mother.

The Queen honored on the second Sunday in November

The tributes to Queen Elizabeth II are still going on, especially this Sunday, November 13, “Remembrance day” in the United Kingdom, dedicated to veterans. The new sovereign of the United Kingdom will lay a wreath of poppies on an arrangement of black leaves at the Cenotaph in London, as is the tradition. This wreath will be decorated with a ribbon that will bear the official colors of royalty, namely scarlet, purple and gold. Colors also incorporated in the crowns of Kings George V, George VI and Queen Elizabeth II. A way for the husband of Queen Consort Camilla to pay tribute to his mother, but also to his illustrious ancestors.
