With the interment of Queen Elizabeth II,  The United Kingdom entered a new era under King Charles III. For 70 years the British Empire was under the leadership of Queen Elizabeth II. One legacy from Queen Elizabeth is the stability of Britain and commonwealth countries over a period of more than half a century. Britain, which had been plagued by violence from Northern Ireland but slowly then after the Cold War became lessened.

This so-called new era under Charles King III was the first, England ceased to be an emporium like the 17th to 20th centuries due to the independence of its colonies. In the midst of that situation, the British Empire must survive not maintaining the values of the kingdom in the United Kingdom and at least as head of state in four countries such as Australia, Canada and Jamaica. Although the territory has shrunk, the remnants of British influence are still lingering. This is what later became Britain’s source of power in international relations.

Secondly, in the days since Queen Elizabeth died it appears that the solidarity of the people in the Kingdom of England from Wales to Scotland to Northern Ireland is strengthening. Hundreds or even thousands of people ranging from Scotland to London, England extended farewell greetings to the minister of Queen Elizabeth. This event is rare, giving rise to the interpretation that it is true that there are still ties between the people of the British Empire and the Royal family. The British royal family because of Prince Harry’s matter of abandoning the royal family’s obligations and choosing to stay in the United States was a challenge from the royal family. But it did not dampen the respect of the British people to Queen Elizabeth II and King Charles III.

Thirdly, When Britain has already exited the European Union through Brexit, Britain’s influence and involvement in Europe is not as close as it used to be. Many rules are a challenge for Britons working in Europe and vice versa. King Charles III’s challenge is how to lead Britain when it is no longer in the extended family of the European Union but is in Europe.

In short, the new era of the British Empire under King Charles III was highly dependent on his leadership ability both in maintaining the monarchical culture in England and in being an inspiration for the British people to face the dynamics of the world including the War in Ukraine which seriously threatened the economies of Britain and Europe.
