King Charles is now the new British king following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday. Given that the date of his coronation has not been made public, he is also the oldest British king in history.
William and Harry are the two sons of King Charles. The brothers were formerly quite close, but lately, they seldom speak to one another. William follows a traditional life like the other members of the Royal Family, but Harry and his wife Meghan reside in Los Angeles.
King Charles’s relationships with his brothers are also not particularly good. His accession to the throne will cause the Royal Family’s power dynamics to shift even more.
