Royalists have expressed their anger at the celebratory tone of some reactions to the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
King Charles III has been formally announced as Britain's new monarch during a ceremony at St James's Palace today.
On The Anton Savage Show, reporter Henry McKean captured the atmosphere in London.
Wendy and Jackie from Northern Ireland said King Charles' speech "would bring you to tears".
They see the royal family as "just a family who are grieving".
However, the sentiment is not shared by all, particularly some of those living in current and former British colonies.
One of the Royalists said: "At the end of the day, no matter what your beliefs are - and you're entitled to your beliefs - someone has passed away."
"A family have lost a much-loved relative ... it's angry to think that somebody would celebrate that."
'Part of the family'
The pair said the Queen was "like a grandmother" to them.
"She was just part of our family growing up."
Another onlooker described the late monarch as Britain's mother.
'The glue that stuck us all together'
More than 200 senior politicians past and present, witnessed the new King taking part in the key constitutional and ceremonial step, which was broadcast on TV for the first time in history.
Crowds gathered outside to pay their respects, hoping to catch a glimpse of the royal attendees.
One onlooker described the late Queen as "the glue that stuck us all together".
An American man told Newstalk: "Seeing her legacy over 70 years, it kind of meant a whole lot to us in the United States."
Northern Ireland's First Minister Designate has called on every community there to show respect following the Queen's passing.
Michelle O'Neill joined other party leaders in signing a book of condolence at Belfast City Hall on Friday.
"This is a time for everybody to be respectful: Queen Elizabeth has died, there's a family that is mourning her loss.
"She may have been the Queen of England but she was also a mother and grandmother.
"And I think people should be very respectful, this is a time for reflection, this is a time to be respectful of all people and how they feel.
