British royal family resumes regular duties as the period of mourning comes to an end.
As the official time of royal mourning in honor of the late queen comes to a close, the British royalty and their households resume their regular duties.
Up until 8 a.m. on Tuesday, when the Prince and Princess of Wales will visit the country for the first time since assuming their titles, flags at royal homes were flown at half-mast.
After the queen passed away on September 8, the royal family only performed official responsibilities when necessary, and when they were out in public, they wore black as a sign of respect.
After following the seven-day period of grief, they will begin to fully fulfill their regular official tasks on Tuesday.
In order to visit Swansea in South West Wales, William and Kate will first travel to Holyhead in Anglesey, North Wales, where they will spend the first part of the day.
Following the passing of the queen, the royal couple vowed to go as soon as possible. By doing so, they hoped to start “deepening the trust and respect” they already had with the Welsh people.
The couple’s most recent official trip to Wales was in June when they visited Cardiff Castle as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to watch rehearsals for the Platinum Jubilee concert.
On Thursday night, the eve of his tax-cutting mini-budget, Charles had a phone audience with Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng as part of his one official obligation during the period of royal mourning.
The Prince and Princess of Wales thanked the volunteers and support employees they encountered that day at Windsor for their work during the ceremonies leading up to the queen’s funeral ceremony.
Following the tradition established by the late monarch, the king left for Scotland shortly after the queen’s funeral on Monday and is expected to stay at his home of Birkhall into early October.
The monarch would often return to London before the start of the fall session of Parliament after spending around 10 weeks at her residence in Scotland over the summer.
Charles’ coronation is thought to be in the planning stages, and Lavender Hill Magistrates’ Court in south London heard rumors that a date has been picked for the anticipated national ceremony in 2019.
