Grieving King Charles signed a series of ministerial appointments today as he steps down to serve as monarch during a period of mourning. Just 24 hours after his late mother’s funeral, the king approved four people to take on roles in Liz Truss’s government.

He began his constitutional duties despite the royal family not participating in any formal public engagements for another week after the queen’s death to allow her to recover.

Ms Truss had been at No 10 for less than 48 hours when she died at Balmoral on September 8.

Appointing new ministers was one of the last duties the Queen was believed to have performed.

Ms Truss was part of her cabinet appointing ministers when politics effectively stopped as a mark of respect until after the funeral.

Charles and Camilla were pictured in a vehicle that arrived at RAF Northolt on Tuesday morning, reportedly on its way to Balmoral – the estate on which the King’s Scottish home of Birkhall is located.

Buckingham Palace has not commented on the new monarch’s actions.

King Charles III ordered on September 9, the day the Queen died after 70 years of reign, that a period of mourning be observed for seven days after the funeral.

Buckingham Palace said: “Following the Queen’s death, it is Her Majesty the King’s wish that a period of royal mourning be observed for seven days following the Queen’s funeral.

“Members of the royal family, staff of the royal family and representatives of the royal family will perform royal mourning on official duties, and will be bound by ceremonial duties with the military.”

After the last day of royal mourning, flags will fly at royal residences until 8 am.

The Queen was finally laid to rest alongside her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, at a private evening funeral service in Windsor attended only by close family.

No date has been set for Charles’ coronation, but it is expected that, in keeping with royal precedent and due to the large amount of planning involved, there will be at least a gap between the new king’s funeral and the coronation. There will be a gap of several months.
