Congratulatory messages from around the world are pouring into London after Charles III was officially proclaimed the new King of Great Britain.
European Council President Charles Michel wished the new British monarch “a successful and glorious reign.”
King Felipe VI of Spain sent this message:
On the auspicious occasion of the coronation, I would like to extend to Your Majesty, on my behalf and on behalf of the Government and people of Spain, our sincere congratulations.
Even Russian President Vladimir Putin sent his greetings: “Please accept my sincere congratulations on your enthronement. I wish Your Majesty success, good health and all the best. “
Putin’s message came as he was waging war against Ukraine, a conflict in which the UK sided with Kyiv.
The UK has sent weapons to Kyiv and military training to help it defend itself against gratuitous Russian aggression.
Meanwhile, the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, also wished Charles well.
“On behalf of all Londoners, I wish our new monarch, King Charles III, every success as His Majesty assumes this important responsibility,” Khan said in a tweet.
