King quotes Shakespeare in moving tribute to Queen in speech to MPs and peers

See restrictions. The King promised “faithfully to follow” the example of his mother in a speech in Westminster Hall as both Houses of Parliament gathered to express their condolence to the new monarch. In a short response inside the hall after a formal expression of condolence from MPs and peers, the new King quoted Shakespeare as he spoke movingly of tributes and monuments to his mother inside the Palace of Westminster and spoke of feeling the “weight of history” as he stood inside the historic room. Speaking from a gilded lectern, Charles said: “I am deeply grateful for the addresses of condolence.”
