King Charles marks anniversary of mother’s death at private church service
The Guardian says King Charles III is remembering his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, with a private church service in Scotland on the anniversary of her death on Friday.
As gun salutes and abbey bells mark the anniversary of his accession elsewhere, Charles and Queen Camilla will be at their Scottish retreat, and will attend private memorial prayers at Crathie Church near Balmoral Castle.
It will be a day of private reflection for the royal couple, who are spending their traditional summer break at their Aberdeenshire home, joined by a small number of guests.
The Prince and Princess of Wales, who are visiting west Wales, will commemorate the life of the queen at a small, private service at St Davids Cathedral on Friday.
