The public, along with invited guests, attended the Proclamation ceremony, which was held on the square outside Llys Cadwyn, Pontypridd, at 1:15pm on Sunday (September 11) .
The announcement was made by the Mayor of Rhondda Cynon Taf, Councillor Wendy Treeby, accompanied by Councillor Maureen Webber, Deputy Leader of Rhondda Cynon Taf Council, the Mayor of Pontypridd Town, the Deputy Lord Lieutenant, Members of Parliament, representatives from the police and fire services, and a number of other dignitaries.
King Charles III became Monarch following the death of his mother, the late Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, on Thursday, September 8, aged 96.
Following the Proclamation at St James’ Palace, London, on Saturday (September 10), proclamations have taken place across the UK. The Senedd was also recalled at the weekend for Welsh politicians to pay tribute to The Queen.
Flags are now flying at half-mast at civic buildings across our County Borough for the period of National Mourning. They will remain at half-mast until 8am on the day after the State Funeral of The Queen.
