President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan has sent a message of congratulations to King Charles III of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, on his ascension to the throne after the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

“Our best wishes to my dear friend His Majesty King Charles III on his accession to the throne of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. We look forward to further strengthening this exceptional friendship,” Sheikh Mohamed tweeted on Saturday.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, has also dispatched a similar message of congratulations to King Charles.

“Congratulations to the people of Great Britain and Northern Ireland on the occasion of King Charles III's accession to the throne. We wish him success in his new royal duties, and the friendly British people continued prosperity and progress," the Dubai Ruler wrote in his tweet.

King Charles III was officially announced as Britain’s monarch Saturday, in a ceremony steeped in ancient tradition and political symbolism — and, for the first time, broadcast live.

Charles automatically became king when his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, died on Thursday, but the accession ceremony is a key constitutional and ceremonial step in introducing the new monarch to the country.

It’s the first time the ceremony has been held since 1952, when Queen Elizabeth II took the throne.
