The country has got a new king after the death of 96-year-old Queen Elizabeth II, who ruled Britain for the longest time. This change in monarchy is happening after 70 years. Elizabeth’s son King Charles III, 73, is now sitting on the throne. He was crowned on Saturday and formally became the new King of England.
