Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, was the first head of state to congratulate King Charles III of the United Kingdom on assuming the throne.
After his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, unexpectedly passed away on Thursday, September 8, 2022, King Charles III was formerly declared as the King of Britain.
On Saturday, September 10, two days after the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, Charles—who had previously held the title of prince of Whales—was crowned king. He has since transferred that title to his first son, Prince William and his wife, Kate who are now known as the Prince and Princess of Wales.
