The Accession Council will be televised for the first time in history, Clarence House has confirmed.

King Charles III will be proclaimed as the new monarch in front of millions of viewers as people can tune in to watch the historic event on Saturday morning at St James' Palace.

While Charles automatically became King following the death of the Queen, the formalities will take place in the days which follow.

The Accession Council would usually take place within 24 hours of the death of the monarch, but due to the timing of the news of Her Majesty's passing, plans were not put in place for Friday.

Historically the Privy Council would be summoned to the Accession Council to oversee the proclamation of the new monarch, but this year restrictions will be put in place with just 200 summoned.

Those who are not summoned will be asked to enter a ballot.

The Accession Council will be provided into two parts, with the first part including The Proclamation which will consist of the chosen Privy counsellors, excluding King Charles, will attend St James' Palace to proclaim him king.

Camilla and the Duke of Cornwall and Cambridge are privy counsellors so will be present.

The Lord President will announce the death of the Queen and will the text of the Accession Proclamation.

The proclamation will then be signed by the platform party which is made up of Camilla and William, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Lord Chancellor, the Archbishop of York, the Prime Minister, the Lord Privy Seal, the Lord Great Chamberlain, the Earl Marshal and the Lord President.

As they move onto the second part of The Accession Council it will be deemed the King's First Privy Council, which Charles will hold once he enters.

He will make a personal declaration about the death of the Queen.
