The star of the Dark Knight trilogy and Oscar winner (for The Fighter in 2011) told The Hollywood Reporter he could be persuaded to join the Star Wars franchise – but only to continue the work of the famous but unidentified stormtrooper who banged his head on the doorframe in the background of A New Hope.

'This is also a time of change for my family,' he began. 'I count on the loving help of my darling wife Camilla in recognition of her own loyal public service since our marriage 17 years ago. She becomes my Queen Consort. I know she will bring to the demands of her new role, the steadfast devotion to duty on which I have come to rely so much.'

King Charles and Camilla, Queen Consort

On September 27, King Charles announced the royal mourning period for the Queen had ended.

Via the official Royal Family Twitter account, he shared: 'The period of Royal Mourning following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth has now ended.

'This account will continue to reflect the work of The King, The Queen Consort and other members of The Royal Family, as well as remembering the life and work of Queen Elizabeth.'

Accompanying his announcement was a portrait photograph of the Queen taken by Dorothy Wilding on 26 February 1952, 20 days after her accession to the throne.

His post came just over a week after the national mourning period for the Queen had ended.

As for what's next the date of King Charles' coronation is yet to be announced, but royal biographer Hugo Vickers said we should know a date soon.

Speaking on ITV's Good Morning Britain on Tuesday, September 20, Vickers, author of biographies for many 20th century figures, including the Queen Mother, said he expects it to take place in spring or summer next year

It's also predicted that the King will introduce a 'slimmed down' monarchy, meaning there could be less working members of the royal family. Prince Harry and Markle stepped back as senior members of the family in March 2020.

According to Vickers, the newly-appointed monarch coronation is due to be shorter and smaller than the Queen's in 1953.

'The King is very aware of the struggles felt by modern Britons so will see his wishes carried through that although his coronation ceremony should stay right and true to the long held traditions of the past, it should also be representative of a monarchy in a modern world,' a source told the news outlet.

It's also believed his ceremony 'will be shorter, sooner, smaller, less expensive and more representative of different community groups and faiths'.

In addition, the guest list could be limited to 2,000 people, with Commonwealth leaders and a range of religions 'prioritised among the congregation'.

As per the Telegraph, the King is also expected to visit France for his first overseas trip as sovereign, and rather than visit one of the Commonwealth countries, it's likely he may head to Paris 'as soon as next month' as part of a tour.

Monarchs typically make state trips to members of the Commonwealth.

The Queen, however, struggled to travel during the final years of her 70-year reign, with no state visits conducted by the monarch for the past seven years.

Visiting France will allow the King to work on a major tree-planting scheme in Africa, designed to combat climate change. The Great Green Wall project, focused on planting trees across 30 miles of the African continent, could also be held during his visit.

Plans for the King's foreign visit aren't confirmed, but it's been reported he will visit a neighbouring country ahead of long-haul trip to a Commonwealth country.

At the time of the Queen's death, France's president Emmanuel Macron wrote: 'The United Kingdom will forever bear the seal of she who embodied it for seventy years with unwavering strength and moral authority. France pays tribute to she who marked the History of her country, our continent and her century.'
