Charles III takes oath as he is proclaimed King of England

After the Accession Council publicly reported the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, Charles III takes an oath and is crowned King.

At St. James’s Palace, the swearing-in event is taking place.

On Thursday afternoon, the Queen passed away at Balmoral Castle in Scotland.

Her passing occurs shortly after the BBC previously reported that the Queen’s doctors had voiced concerns about her health at some point on Thursday, September 8, 2022, around mid-morning.

The Queen, whose given name is Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, was born on April 21, 1926, and promptly succeeded her father, King George VI, to the throne on February 6, 1952.

As a result, she governed for 70 years before passing away.

She earned the respect and love of her subjects, residents of former British colonies, and people all over the world during her reign as queen of Britain.

Elizabeth II reigned over Ghana, a former British colony, from 1957 to 1960, the year the country attained independence.

In 1961, from 9 to 20, Queen Elizabeth II paid two visits to Ghana: on November 7 and 8, 1999.

At a farewell ball in Accra during her 1961 visit, the Queen made history by dancing with Ghana’s President, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.

According to many academics, the dance represented a significant turning point in the Commonwealth’s history. The Queen persisted on this tour despite explosions in the city and worries that Ghana was becoming too close to the Soviet Union to prevent Ghana from leaving the Commonwealth.
