“Hip, hip, hurra”: el ferviente respaldo a Carlos III tras su proclamación como rey del Reino Unido / The fervent support for Carlos III after his proclamation as king of the United Kingdom

El cargo militar ceremonial conocido como Rey de Armas de la Jarretera leyó “la primera y principal Proclamación”, culminada por una fanfarria y desfile militar

La primera lectura pública este sábado, desde el balcón del patio del palacio londinense de Saint James, de la proclamación del rey Carlos III estuvo acompañada de salvas de cañón y una interpretación del himno nacional, en el que desde ahora se sustituye el “Dios salve a la reina” por “Dios salve al rey”. Y se escuchó fuerte tres veces el “Hip, hip, hurra”, las vivas para el flamante soberano.

El cargo militar ceremonial conocido como Rey de Armas de la Jarretera leyó “la primera y principal Proclamación”, culminada por una fanfarria y desfile militar, que será recitada también en la antigua City de Londres (hoy su centro financiero) y en Escocia, Gales e Irlanda del Norte.

El Rey de Armas pidió al final “tres hurras por su majestad el rey”, a lo que la Guardia Real respondió con hurras y levantando sus gorras de piel de oso.

Previamente, el Consejo de Ascensión -institución ceremonial que solo se convoca cuando hay nuevo monarca- pronunció dentro del palacio esta misma proclamación, en la que se constata formalmente la muerte de Isabel II y su sucesión por Carlos III, aunque en realidad el heredero la sustituyó automáticamente tras su defunción pasado jueves.

El Consejo, formado por autoridades políticas y sociales, constata en lenguaje muy formal y antiguo que, tras el fallecimiento de la soberana, la corona pasa a su primogénito.

“Los señores espirituales y temporales de este reino, y miembros de la Cámara de los Comunes junto con otros miembros del consejo privado de su difunta majestad y representantes de los reinos y territorios, concejales, ciudadanos de Londres y otros, con una sola voz y consentimiento de lengua y corazón publicamos y proclamamos que el príncipe Carlos Felipe Arturo Jorge se ha convertido ahora por la muerte de nuestra soberana de feliz recuerdo en nuestro único señor legítimo y feliz, Carlos III”, dice el texto.

La Reyna ha muerto, que viva el Rey: Carlos III asume el trono

La declaración promete entonces “fe y obediencia con humilde afecto”, deseándole un largo reinado.

Durante la jornada de hoy, el nuevo rey del Reino Unido mantendrá audiencias con varios líderes religiosos y políticos del país, como el arzobispo de Canterbury, Justin Welby, primado de la Iglesia Anglicana; de nuevo con la primera ministra, Liz Truss, y su gabinete y con los líderes de la oposición en el Parlamento, encabezados por el laborista Keir Starmer.

Mientras Carlos III asume sus nuevas funciones, siguen los preparativos para el funeral de Estado de la reina, que se prevé que sea el 19 de septiembre, aunque el calendario oficial no se ha anunciado.

Lo que sí se ha comunicado ya es que ese día, cuando mandatarios de todo el mundo vendrán a Londres a despedir a Isabel II, será declarado jornada festiva en el Reino Unido.

The first public reading this Saturday, from the balcony of the courtyard of the London Palace of Saint James, of the proclamation of the king charles iii It was accompanied by cannon salutes and a rendition of the national anthem, in which “God save the queen” is now replaced by “God save the king”. And he was heard loud three times the “Hip Hip Hooray”, cheers for the brand new sovereign.

The ceremonial military position known as Garter King of Arms read “the first and main Proclamation”, culminating in a fanfare and military parade, which will also be recited in the former City of London (today its financial center) and in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The ceremonial military position known as Garter King of Arms read “the first and main Proclamation”, culminating in a fanfare and military parade, which will also be recited in the former City of London (today its financial center) and in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The King of Arms asked at the end “three cheers for his majesty the king“, what the Kingsguard responded with cheers and raising their bearskin caps.

Previously, the Ascension Council – a ceremonial institution that is only convened when there is a new monarch – pronounced this same proclamation inside the palace, in which the death of Isabel II and her succession by Carlos III are formally confirmed, although in reality the heir replaced automatically after his death last Thursday.

The Council, made up of political and social authorities, states in very formal and ancient language that, after the death of the sovereign, the crown passes to her eldest son.

“The Lords Spiritual and Temporal of this Realm, and Members of the House of Commons together with other Members of Her Late Majesty’s Privy Council and Representatives of the Realms and Territories, Aldermen, Citizens of London and others, with one voice and consent of tongue and heart we publish and We proclaim that Prince Carlos Felipe Arturo Jorge has now become, due to the death of our sovereign of happy memory, our only legitimate and happy lord, Carlos III”, says the text.

The statement then promises “faith and obedience with humble affection”, wishing him a long reign.

During today’s session, the new king of the United Kingdom will hold audiences with various religious and political leaders of the country, such as the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, primate of the Anglican Church; again with the prime minister, Liz Truss, and her cabinet and with the opposition leaders in Parliament, led by Labor Keir Starmer.

While Carlos III assumes his new functions, preparations continue for the queen’s state funeral, scheduled to take place on 19 Septemberalthough the official schedule has not been announced.

What has already been communicated is that that day, when leaders from around the world will come to London to bid farewell to Elizabeth II, will be declared a public holiday in the United Kingdom.
