The last formality to take place is the coronation.

Queen Elizabeth II was crowned on June 2, 1953, some 16 months after her accession on Feb. 6, 1952, when her father, King George VI, died.

Charles is the 41st monarch in a line that traces its origins to the Norman king, William the Conqueror, who captured the English throne in 1066.
