Having visited Buckingham Palace for the first time since the Queen’s death, addressed the nation and met the prime minister on Friday, Charles will officially be proclaimed King on Saturday. The Queen’s coffin will remain at Balmoral.

Here is a guide to some of the key moments scheduled to take place on the second day after the Queen’s death.

Others in attendance at the ceremony, which will be televised for the first time, will include privy councillors and government ministers and possibly former ministers, prime ministers and senior clergy.

Afterwards, the King will hold his first privy council – the UK’s oldest working legislative assembly – accompanied by Camilla and William and will make his personal declaration about the Queen’s death and take an oath to preserve the Church of Scotland.
