An eventful year is coming to an end for King Charles: Today the British royal is celebrating his first birthday without his mother. Of course, Kate and William congratulate on the 74th day of honor. Nothing is known about congratulations from the USA.
King Charles III celebrates his 74th birthday today, November 14th. It is his first birthday as reigning king after the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, in September. Palace circles said Charles was spending the holiday in private.
As part of this special day, the palace released a new picture of the monarch. The photo can also be seen on the Royals’ official Instagram account. It shows King Charles III. Leaning against an old tree with a walking stick. Charles is now the official ranger of Windsor Great Parks, 70 years after his late father took over the title, the accompanying comment reads. Prince Philip held the office from 1952 until his death last year.
The palace also shared a short clip on Instagram. In the video, a band can be seen and heard playing “Happy Birthday” as part of a changing of the guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace for the King’s birthday. There were also numerous congratulations from followers of the royals on social media.
Congratulations from Kate and William
Previously, Prince William and his wife, Princess Kate, had already congratulated. For a photo that shows the laughing king, it said on the the couple’s official Twitter profile: “Wishing His Majesty the King a Happy Birthday.” In a story on the two’s Instagram profile, the picture was shared with the same congratulations. And also on the Royal Family’s Twitter account, the palace wished all the best – again for a picture that shows the laughing Charles.
Nothing has been reported about congratulations from Harry and Meghan to Charles. Instead, the “Daily Mail” reported that the two Sussexes turned down the traditional invitation to Christmas at Sandringham Castle and would rather stay in the United States. “It is unlikely that they will attend,” a source close to the king told the paper. So this celebration should also take place in a smaller circle.
