Situated at a desk beside a photograph of his recently departed mother, the King reaffirmed the commitment and duty the Queen had so dutifully displayed is now his own.

The new King, who will be replaced by his eldest son an heir William as the Prince of Wales, said: “As The Queen herself did with such unswerving devotion, I too now solemnly pledge myself, throughout the remaining time God grants me, to uphold the Constitutional principles at the heart of our nation.

“And wherever you may live in the United Kingdom, or in the Realms and territories across the world, and whatever may be your background or beliefs, I shall endeavour to serve you with loyalty, respect and love, as I have throughout my life.”
