The accession ceremony for King Charles III will take place on Saturday at Rideau Hall
OTTAWA — A ceremony announcing the accession of King Charles III as Canada’s new head of state will take place Saturday morning at Rideau Hall.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and members of the federal cabinet and Privy Council are also expected to meet as part of the protocol required to formally proclaim the new sovereign.
Trudeau is signing the Queen’s Book of Condolences tonight after returning to Ottawa from a three-day cabinet retreat in Vancouver.
A date for Canada’s national memorial service for Queen Elizabeth II has not been announced as officials await public confirmation of when her state funeral will take place.
Canadian Heritage says it will hold a ceremony, including a televised church service, a memorial parade, as well as a 96-gun salute and a military parade to honor and remember Canada’s longest-serving head of state.
Government officials say it will be the same day as the Queen’s state funeral in London.
