King Charles III confirmed he will give up much of his charity work as he commits himself to a new life as monarch.

“My life will of course change as I take up my new responsibilities,” the King said. “It will no longer be possible for me to give so much of my time and energies to the charities and issues for which I care so deeply. But I know this important work will go on in the trusted hands of others,” he added.

It is expected for the British monarch to be strictly apolitical, a commitment which the Queen steadfastly upheld throughout her reign.

Charles has been involved in a number of charitable causes, and has had a particular focus on environmentalism.

King Charles III, in his first address as King, pledged to uphold the duties of monarch after the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

“Our values have remained, and must remain constant. The role and the duties of monarchy also remain, as does the sovereignty, so the particular relationship and responsibility towards the church in which my own faith is so deeply rooted,” he said.

“In that faith, and the values it inspires, I have been brought up to cherish a sense of duty to others. And to hold in the greatest respect, the precious traditions, freedoms, and responsibilities about unique history, and our system of parliamentary government.

As the Queen herself did with such unswerving devotion, I too, now, solemnly pledged myself, throughout the remaining time God grants me to uphold the constitutional principles at the heart of a nation,” he continued.

He also noted his devotion to British territories around the globe.

“And wherever you may live in the United Kingdom, or in the realms and territories across the world, and whatever maybe your background or beliefs, I shall endeavor to serve you with loyalty, respect, and love, as I have throughout my life,” he said.

In her memoir “Becoming,” the former first lady wrote that she first met her future husband when she was assigned as his mentor at the law firm Sidley Austin LLP in Chicago.

She said that she was initially too focused on her law career and wasn’t interested in dating, but that his insistence changed her mind.
She wrote that he first kissed her at a Chicago ice cream shop.

“When we stopped for ice cream and he got the sense that I was starting to open up, he played it real smooth,” she told “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts in 2018.

“He just leaned in for a kiss. And that really was it. You know, from that kiss on… it was love. And he was my man.”

The two became engaged in 1991 and eventually married on Oct. 3, 1992, in Chicago. They have two children together, Sasha and Malia Obama.
