He had reportedly been by his mother’s side as she died on the afternoon of September 8.

Reporter Victoria Newton was with Charles on Wednesday – his last working day as the Prince of Wales.

Writing in the Sun, she said “he wasn’t himself”.

“He looked under strain, like a man with the weight of the world on his shoulders,” Newton said.

At one point, as she showed him a photograph of his grandchildren she said he “looked emotional, almost close to tears”.

As the new King left Balmoral to journey to London, he will have been very aware his life has now changed irrevocably.

Royal commentators told 7NEWS it would be a journey “he would remember for the rest of his life”.

7NEWS presenter anchor Angela Cox said Camilla appeared “weighed down” by her and Charles’ new responsibilities.

Earlier in the day, Prince Harry had been spotted leaving Scotland.

King Charles is set to address a country in mourning following the death of his mother, the only monarch most Britons ever knew and the “spirit of the nation” for seven decades.

Charles is set to meet the prime minister and make a televised statement.

The death of the Queen, Britain’s longest-reigning monarch and a towering presence on the world stage for 70 years, has drawn condolences from around the world.

Waking up to their first day without a woman once described by her grandson Harry as “the nation’s grandmother”, members of the public began gathering again outside Buckingham Palace to lay flowers and take photos of the growing memorial there.

Billboards across the city displayed messages of condolence and newspapers ran front-page photo tributes to the Queen.

Buckingham Palace said there would a period of mourning to be observed by members of the family and the royal household until a week after the funeral, the date of which has not yet been confirmed but is expected in about 10 days time.

At the remote Balmoral Castle in Scotland where the Queen died on Thursday and where her family gathered, people also arrived to pay their respects.

“She was amazing. She was like everyone’s granny. She always managed to capture the mood with her words,” said Kay McClement, 55, who came with a friend to leave flowers at the castle.

People also gathered at Buckingham Palace to lay flowers outside the railings.

“I brought my young daughter here, because even though she won’t remember it, we can tell her she was here as history was happening,” said railway worker Liam Fitzjohn, 27.

Charles, who automatically succeeded his mother as king, said the death was a moment of great sadness for himself and his family.

“We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished Sovereign and a much-loved mother. I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world,” the 73-year-old said in a statement.

He is expected to meet Prime Minister Liz Truss on Friday before later addressing the country.

There will be gun salutes at London’s Hyde Park and at the Tower of London and the bells at Westminster Abbey and St Paul’s will toll. At Windsor Castle, the Sebastopol Bell, captured during the 19th Century Crimean War and which is only struck to mark the death of the sovereign, will toll.

Regular business in parliament was replaced with a special session to pay tribute to the Queen.

The Queen had been suffering from what Buckingham Palace had called “episodic mobility problems” since the end of last year, forcing her to withdraw from nearly all her public engagements.

Her last public duty came only on Tuesday, when she appointed Truss prime minister – the 15th of her reign.

“The death of Her Majesty the Queen is a huge shock to the nation and to the world,” Truss said outside her Downing Street office where the flag, like those at royal palaces and government buildings across Britain, was lowered.

“Through thick and thin, Queen Elizabeth II provided us with the stability and the strength that we needed. She was the very spirit of Great Britain – and that spirit will endure.”

Trade unions cancelled planned strikes and the BBC national broadcaster said that “as a mark of respect” it had called off its remaining ‘Proms’ concerts – whose patriotic, flag-waving finale was due to take place on Saturday.

The Queen, who was also the world’s oldest and longest-serving head of state, came to the throne following the death of her father King George VI on February 6, 1952, when she was just 25.

She was crowned in June the following year.

Elizabeth became monarch at a time when Britain retained much of its old empire with Winston Churchill her prime minister, while Josef Stalin led the Soviet Union and the Korean War was raging.
