Kings Charles III officially proclaimed new monarch at Rotherham Town Hall ceremony

A NEW monarch was proclaimed at Rotherham Town Hall during a service led by the town’s mayor.

Cllr Tajamal Khan led the formal proclamation service for King Charles III yesterday, which followed a model being replicated in towns and cities across the country. 

The service, which in Rotherham was attended by council leader Cllr Chris Read and chief executive, Sharon Kemp, and attended by a small crowd, is a part of the formal procession of succession following the death of Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday.

The Mayor laid an official bouquet in memory of Her Majesty at Rotherham’s Heart on Steel on Friday — where many more floral tributes have been placed since — and signed the book of condolence at the nearby Rotherham Minster. 

The new king was officially proclaimed during a ceremony in London on Saturday by the Accession Council, which included Wentworth & Dearne MP John Healey, who is a privy councillor.

Buckingham Palace announced yesterday that the Queen’s funeral will be held at Westminster Abbey next Monday, which will be an official bank holiday.
