Britain’s King Charles has named his eldest son William and daughter-in-law Kate the Prince and Princess of Wales. In his first speech to the nation since the death of his mother Queen Elizabeth on Thursday, King Charles said he is proud to make his heir William the Prince of Wales, a title Charles had held since 1958.

William and Kate, both 40, have taken on central roles within the royal family in recent years, appearing regularly in public and increasingly taking their three young children to events such as the queen’s Platinum Jubilee earlier this year.

Elizabeth, Britain’s longest-reigning monarch and a towering presence on the world stage for 70 years, died on Thursday at her home in Scotland aged 96.
