The eldest son of Britain’s longest-reigning monarch Queen Elizabeth II Charles has taken his mother’s place on the throne following her death on 8th September. King Charles III, as he will be called will succeed his mother as the king of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth realms. King Charles III is the first child of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. He can travel without a passport and drive without a licence. As his birthday is on November 14, it’s likely he’ll have an ‘official birthday’ in a warmer month. He would also own all unmarked mute swans in England. He can grant Royal Warrants to companies/tradespeople. Burberry, Cadbury, Jaguar Cars are among companies with Royal Warrants. The British monarch cannot vote or run for public office as he or she must remain strictly neutral in political affairs.
