Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, became king with Queen Elizabeth’s death.
Elizabeth died Thursday afternoon, passing the crown on to her eldest son.
Prince Charles was blindsided by one thing in particular in terms of how Meghan changed Harry’s relationship with the family.
Heir Prince Charles and all the queen's children were either at the British monarch's bedside or en route to the castle in Scotland.
Queen Elizabeth, the longest-reigning monarch in Britain's history, died on Thursday aged 96, with her son Charles succeeding her as king.
In line with British tradition, Prince Charles has been automatically upgraded to king upon the death of the previous monarch.
Elizabeth II’s family rushed to her home in Scotland following a Buckingham Palace announcement about her declining health.
The British monarchy’s rules state that “a new sovereign succeeds to the throne as soon as his or her predecessor dies.”
