Charles made his first address to Britain and the Commonwealth as monarch Friday afternoon. He became king on Thursday after the queen's death.
“That promise of lifelong service I renew to all today,” he said.
His speech was broadcast on television and streamed at St. Paul's Cathedral, where some 2,000 people were attending a service of remembrance for the queen. Mourners at the service included Prime Minister Liz Truss and members of her government.
