Prince Charles became King Charles III on Thursday after the passing of Queen Elizabeth II

In 2022, Charles will begin to define his position as a monarch and,

more significantly, determine whether he would continue his activism from the throne as 

Britain and the 14 Commonwealth states get used to their new head of state.

Prince of Wales Charles was unambiguous about climate change. 

He stated earlier this year that "the globe is on the verge" 

 and that "if we are to win, we need the mobilising urgency of a war-like

footing." He will now have to walk a fine line between political activism and the throne in his capacity as Kin

 His reputation in the U.K. and Commonwealth will undoubtedly be influenced

by how he handles his activist tendencies.
