Elsewhere in his speech, the newly appointed King, 73, thanked his wife, Camilla, 75, who will now be known as Queen Consort, a title given to her Queen Elizabeth herself. He also explained how his daily duties will now differ under his new title.
“My life will, of course, change as I take up my new responsibilities. It will no longer be possible for me to give so much of my time and energies to the charities and issues for which I care so deeply,” he continued. “But I know this important work will go on in the trusted hands of others.”
