King Charles Won’t Be Out And About As Much Over Next Six Weeks

LONDON (AP) — King Charles III won’t be out and about much over the next six weeks.

U.K. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak called an early parliamentary election for July 4.

Buckingham Palace said shortly after that all members of the royal family were canceling most public engagements until after the vote to avoid doing anything that might divert attention from the campaign.

That announcement is just one of the ways Charles will seek to play his part as a unifying head of state during the election without violating a constitutional ban on interfering in politics.
