However, what happens then? For at least twelve days between her death and funeral, all the major happenings in the United Kingdom will halt.

The banks and the stock market will probably close and funeral and the next coronation will be declared as a national holiday.

Who will be the next ruler?

Prince Charles will be the next king but he won’t be the 'King Charles', as the United Kingdom has no provisions for kings since King William III (1650-1702). Prince Charles has said that he is ready to serve his job after the death of his mother. In 2012, in an interview, he said that.

Impatient? Me? What a thing to suggest! Yes of course I am, I’ll run out of time soon. I shall have snuffed it if I’m not careful.

The new Monarch (presumably Charles) will swear loyalty to parliament, and to the Church of England. He will also become the new Supreme Governor of the church. Prince William will become the new Prince of Wales when Charles will be crowned the King.
