The New Zealand Army’s 16th Field Regiment will pay tribute to the Death Gun on Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s death, firing 96 rounds – one for each year of Her Majesty’s life.
Princess Beatrice, the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, received a massive promotion as the royal family was forced to restructure its roster following the Queen’s death.
The 34-year-old princess, who is rarely called upon to perform royal duties, is now a State Counselor, meaning she has fallen into a small list of senior royals who can represent King Charles III when needed.
Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince Harry and Prince Andrew were the four required state advisers before Queen Elizabeth II died on Thursday afternoon local time, meaning they could fill the monarch’s place if they were “sick or not abroad” vacancies. .
This is because they are the highest candidates for the royal heir over the age of 21.
After Her Majesty’s death, Beatrice was ninth in the line of succession to the throne and fourth among royals over the age of 21, allowing her to play key roles alongside William, Harry and Andrew.
Despite not inheriting the throne, Queen Camilla was also able to fill Charles’ vacancy.
In fact, this makes Beatrice one of the best candidates to succeed Charles after William, as Prince Andrew is largely barred from royal duties amid allegations of sexual abuse, while Prince Harry lives in the US with his family.
In her new role, Beatrice will be empowered to perform the official duties of the monarch, including attending Privy Council meetings, signing routine documents and receiving credentials from the new ambassador to the UK, according to the royal website.
Prince William, 40, is now in line to the throne and has been awarded the new title of Prince of Wales, while his children Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4, are second and third respectively. and fourth-in-line heir, respectively.
Prince Harry, 37, was fifth, while his children with wife Meghan Markle, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, 3, and Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor, 1, were sixth. position and seventh.
Beatrice’s 11-month-old daughter Sienna Mapelli Mozzi shares with husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, the 10th in line to the throne.
Buckingham Palace confirmed on the afternoon of September 8, local time, that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning monarch in British history, died, and her son Charles immediately became the new monarch.
“The passing of my beloved mother, Her Majesty the Queen, is the saddest time for me and all members of my family,” King Charles said in an overnight telecast.
“We deeply mourn the passing of a cherished monarch and a much-loved mother.
“I know her loss will be deeply felt by the entire nation, kingdom and Commonwealth, and countless others around the world.”
