"The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow."

HRH reigned over the United Kingdom since 1952 and is the country’s longest-serving monarch.

ITV bosses have since been confirmed that Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard will present Good Morning Britain on Friday (September 10) from 6am until 9am.

The breakfast show will be followed by an extended ITV News Special from 9am until 8.30pm.

At 8.30pm, a special programme named Queen Elizabeth II – The Longest Reign will air.

Presented by Jonathan Dimbleby, the documentary is an authored tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, charting her historic reign, from its unlikely beginnings, through the splendour of the coronation, the triumphs and tragedies of the 20th century, to the present day.

Using a powerful archive, this feature length documentary examines the vital role Elizabeth has played both at home, during a period of rapid social and cultural change, and abroad, leading Britain and the Commonwealth on the international political stage.

This will be followed by News At Ten at 10pm.

Following the death of The Queen, King Charles III is the new head of state of United Kingdom.

The former Price of Wales automatically became the new monarch the moment Queen Elizabeth II died.

However, his coronation may not take place for a number of months.

Charles, 73. has been heir to the throne since 1952, four years after his birth.

There have already been two King Charles’ in British history – with one of them ending up executed – and there are some question marks about what title the modern-day Charles will take.

The new King lost his father, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, last year on April 9.
