The meeting of the new prime minister of the United Kingdom, Liz Truss , with Queen Elizabeth II, in Belmoral, Scotland, was one of the last official meetings of the monarch. Last Thursday (8), Elizabeth II died, aged 96, and her son Charles III took over as King of the United Kingdom.
Along with Liz Truss in the British government, Charles also ushers in “a new era in the United Kingdom”, as ESPM professor of International Relations Roberto Uebel explains to CNN.
“Indeed the UK today begins a new era, never before in UK history, at least since the 16th century, has it had a new government and a new monarch in the same week, the new government of Liz Truss and the new reign of Charles III, which begins with the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth. It is a new country that is born at this moment”, said the professor.
On having Charles III as the new monarch, Roberto Uebel highlighted that the king will have the challenge of maintaining political unity and the traditions of the British monarchy.
The challenge now for King Charles III is to maintain this political unity and also to maintain the traditions, respect for the traditions of which the British monarchy itself is a part in the United Kingdom, which was a great power and today is a robust economy”, he said.
“But there are a number of economic challenges to overcome, with Brexit and the economic crisis of the pandemic. This symbology of his new reign has the symbology of maintaining tradition and respect for tradition”, he added.
