Members of Parliament have been swearing allegiance to King Charles as the new head of state and have also been paying tributes to Queen Elizabeth.

A former Prime Minister, David Cameron, has told the BBC that the King has been preparing for a long time for this moment.

“I had audiences with Prince Charles when Elizabeth II was still on the throne because he wanted to start thinking about how to conduct those audiences, and from what I saw, he would be brilliant at that job, brilliant at listening, brilliant at asking questions, giving wise advice and sage counsel,” revealed Cameron.
