The Moment Prince William Arrives to Help the Queen Consort
As words echoed around the grand room, its deep red-hued walls and sizable portraits of past emperors, including King William III, were installed.
Yet the grandeur and importance of the first part of the Council of Accession was in stark contrast to the scene, when the room was buzzing with noise and loud rumbles of conversation.
William was the first to sign the Proclamation, proceeding carefully to take the pen with his left hand before placing his signature on the historical record, as he turned the lid and set the pen. Then came Camilla, who slowly carefully signed her name.
As she returned to his side on the stage, her gaze briefly turned to William. The prince moved back and forth with a touch, as he stood there, clasping his hands, with the sad couple both serious but in control of their emotions.
As the order of business was set for the proclamation, William looked up at the terrace while surveying the grand surroundings – the palace he had known well as a child. With little proceedings at the conclusion, William accepted Prime Minister Liz Truss as the party made its way through the Council Chamber for the second part of the Accession Council.
