6:00 am
kingdom. there is the new king, her son, king charles the serve. >> thank you for teaching us lessons about living a good life and dedication and devotion to your country. glad you are reyouiteed to your lord and your family. >> stay tuned for continuing coverage throughout the day. thank you. >> bill: thank you to our colleagues. good morning to everyone at home. it is 9:00 in new york and we continue our coverage now here on the fox news channel. the king has arrived in the capital city, king charles iii and queen consort camilla landing in london a few moments ago. an address to the world, the first of its kind since the death of queen elizabeth. she died yesterday. her death announced in the afternoon at the age of 96 as we say good morning. a different morning today, right?
6:01 am
different kind of friday. bill hemmer. good morning to you at home. >> dana: i'm dana perino and this is "america's newsroom." the breaking news yesterday and now the sadness is in motion here. the queen's death marking the end of an historic era. she began in 1952 when harry truman was president. >> things stand at the moment the prince is scheduled to give his first address later today as monarch. prince harry seen leaving balmoral in scotland earlier today. we believe other royals are still at the castle. >> dana: a service is held later today at st. paul's cathedral in london. >> bill: our coverage continues with team fox coverage. duncan, a former royal editor of the the sun and author of "the inside story." lucas tomlinson has reaction from president biden. >> dana: we'll go to chief
6:02 am
correspondent jonathan hunt live outside buckingham palace in london. wonderful to have you on our show today. you were in los angeles but have returned to your home country of london for this reporting this morning. good morning to you. >> good morning to you, dana. it is a curious atmosphere to come back to after so many years leaving this country having lived for 30 years here under queen elizabeth and becoming a u.s. citizen and now coming back to the strange realization that it is no longer the elizabethan reign. it is now the reign of king charles iii. we saw the new king leaving balmoral today, taking a flight from the nearby airport in aberdeen. queen consort camilla alongside him. in about four hours' time we expect to hear from king charles. it will obviously be the most
6:03 am
consequential speech he has ever made. you would expect that he will pay tribute to his mother, queen elizabeth ii and also, i would imagine, want to emphasize above all for the british people continuity and stability. he may well have his own way of acting as monarch. he may well have his own priorities but what the british people want to hear now including my own mother who i spoke to this morning at 84 years of age, what they want to hear is the things that will stay the same and will not be a radical change in the way the monarchy is run or the kind of priorities king charles has succeeding his mother, queen elizabeth. that's what they will be looking for from king charles. i would expect him to respond to that, not to any promises of any radical change in the way things are done, just the promise to continue the legacy, the extraordinary legacy of his
6:04 am
mother. and talking of this legacy i wanted to mention, bill and dana, part of a speech the queen made in 1957, her annual christmas address she said these words quote, i cannot lead you into battle. i do not give you laws or administer justice, but i can do something else. i can give you my heart. she obviously has the heart of an entire nation today. bill and dana. >> dana: while we have you, i wonder if you can tell us what it's like if you've had a chance to walk the streets and get a sense of how people are feeling and what they're saying. >> yeah, i think there is a deep sadness at the loss for a lot of people obviously. as you drive into london from the airport, every single one of the many electronic billboards along the streets are tributes to the queen. this is being felt nationwide. to give you a personal feeling, my mother, my 84-year-old mother said she and her husband
6:05 am
just feel in her words edgy about the future of the country. she was 14, my mother. she is now 84. she was 14 when the queen took the throne. her entire life pretty much has been with the queen as the monarch here in the u.k. she, like everybody else, wants to hear king charles say that continuity and stability will be the watch words of his reign, dana. >> dana: thank you. i'm sure we'll see you again as the news continues. president biden is set to attend the queen's funeral on the last day of the 10-day mourning period. lucas tomlinson has more from the white house. we don't have a lot of details about the funeral. the palace will release those in due course. we know our president will be there? >> that's right. that's the report now. president biden will attend the queen's funeral at westminster abby in 10 days. he spoke at a dnc meeting outside the nation's capital. >> president biden: before i
6:06 am
begin i want to say a few words about queen elizabeth. i just stopped by the british embassy to sign the condolence book in her honor and i had the opportunity to meet her before she passed and a very gracious and decent woman. the thoughts and prayers of the american people are with the people in the united kingdom and the commonwealth and their grief. >> the queen had a love of horses and thoroughbred racing. here she is with ronald reagan. reagan is on a horse not too long after the nation's bicentennial when her horse won the royal ascot. her racing stable produced more than 1800 winners, 24 coming at royal ascot alone. the queen inherited the love of the sport. here in washington president biden and first lady paid respects at the british embassy
6:07 am
last night offering condolences to the ambassador and wrote a message into the condolence book. >> president biden: she was a great lady. we were so delighted we got to meet her. >> president biden leaves any minute now for ohio to attend the groundbreaking of a new intel semi conductor plant. >> dana: lucas tomlinson, thank you. >> bill: want to bring in fox news royal contributor, former royal editor of the sun and harry, this is an interesting relationship. he was the last to arrive, the first to leave we're told. his wife did not go to balmoral with him. can you lay out the extent of the relationship as it stands today? >> yeah, i have to say unfortunately it doesn't look that great. i started covering him as a
6:08 am
journalist when he was a teenager and i've seen harry go through some pretty highs and some pretty bad lows. the look of him as he arrived yesterday, he flew to scotland and pretty much as soon as he heard the news. but he went on his own without william, his brother, and without prince an due. no members of the royal family. harry not only did he not get the chance to see the queen before she passed away, which was the same situation for other members of the family other than charles and princess anne but, you know, it just really fundamentally cements what harry has given up. he is now pretty much all but an outsider. they made the announcement the queen had died while harry was still in the air before he had arrived in scotland. and as a kind of day that
6:09 am
prince harry will just want to focus on his grandmother, i think there were early signs perhaps that under prince charles, now king charles, not going to be quite so sympathetic to harry and meghan's complaints. >> dana: take us back to his early childhood and his relationship with his grandmother and how close they were especially after his mother died. >> i think that's really worth a mention when we talk about prince harry. make no mistake, he was a favorite grandson of the queen. remember, some people -- [inaudible] might remember his military events where he would take on the american team of wounded soldiers. harry did a publicity stunt for that with the queen at buckingham palace and challenged barack -- as long as
6:10 am
she was alive, harry always had a door slightly open to return. but unfortunately now it seems -- very early days but seems like in losing the queen as that beloved grandmother, prince harry may just have lost his only lasting and remaining major ally within the family. >> bill: listen, here in the u.s. we'll learn a lot about royal tradition over the next week and a half, 12 days give or take. i learned this this morning, that some key legal documents had been changed or rewritten that changes the status of harry's son, archie, suggesting that he would not be entitled to become a prince of sorts and that charles was leading that. why is that and what comes of that? >> yes. look, i couldn't confirm that myself, bill, because what seems to have been coming out in the past hour or so really over here in britain is that
6:11 am
prince harry's children will become prince and princess and that's because unlike when the queen was still alive when they were great grandchildren they are now direct grandchildren of the reigning monarch. i'm afraid i don't know yet but i tell you, if that turns out to be true, it could well be, you know, that -- before the queen dad there was a real discussion after that from meghan and now is the time the duke and duchess of sussex should be removed. we're in a different league now. i think prince harry is a fantastic guy. i don't know meghan but i do know that harry is a great guy and it was very upsetting to see him so upset yesterday and i hope for his sake that he is not about to feel the wrath of his father. >> dana: i had an opportunity
6:12 am
to live in a part of england for about a year and we traveled around during that year across britain. i've always been interested in the royal family. i was also interested in the different perspectives within britain. it wasn't necessarily a partisan thing like you might have here republican or democrat, but there is a rift in britain either you are pro-royal or you don't think the country needs that anymore. she was really holding a lot of that together and really insisted on trying to unify the country, keep it unified. do you think charles will be able to continue that, or will you see more exacerbations on those fringes? >> yeah, there is a lot there to unpick. but i think what i would say is that -- i might be spectacularly wrong, but i really feel that prince charles, now king charles, will
6:13 am
be taken pretty quickly to the public's heart. >> dana: he is arriving now. they are now leaving the rolls-royce and there you have the new king, king charles. listen to his reception. [cheering and applause] >> bill: that's quite a moment, you have to think how many times charles considered this moment. now at age 73, soon to turn 74 in november. he lived in the shadow of an enormous figure.
6:14 am
and this is his moment. >> dana: here he is arriving at buckingham palace, no doubt very sad. he will address the nation in less than four hours. it will be 1:00 p.m. eastern time here. yesterday morning was the prince and this morning now he is the king. similar thing for his mom, who was not destined to be the queen but that all changed when her uncle abdicated and father took the throne and overnight she went from princess to queen. he had lot more time to prepare for this moment and quite tumultuous over the pass several years. he has camilla at his side and queen elizabeth ii made sure she could be queen with him, she is queen consort now. after all the formalities have taken place she will be the queen. >> what strikes me as we watch
6:15 am
these pictures, here is a man reaching out to his subjects. a point of controversy for centuries about how much transparency and how quote, unquote, untouchable king or queen would be toward their subjects. this would suggest to me a very good first step. >> i'm very glad you are saying that. you think you are absolutely right. i think the king, king charles, is now basking in the goodwill people had for his mother and the goodwill they have for his son prince william and kate. we have been by his side enough and the memory of his mother, and people have been perhaps dreading this day. some said prince charles should never be king and go straight
6:16 am
to william. i think hold on, i think we're in for a surprise. >> dana: also interesting to see how technology has changed since 1952 when queen elizabeth the 2sh first took the throne no selfies and iphones and things of that nature. the way the monarchy has had to adapt with the technology you see. he has very strong feelings and ideas about green energy in particular. i don't think you will expect to hear that from him today. he has a direction he wants to take the country. meantime now being there and knowing you will always be on camera and having a chance to smile and shake these people's hands is really wonderful. duncan, if you could hold for a moment let's go to jonathan hunt. you are still there as king charles and queen consort have arrived at buckingham palace.
6:17 am
what are you seeing, jonathan hunt? >> we've been hearing the cheers from right behind me here where the flag is now at full staff over buckingham palace. king charles and queen consort camilla arriving a few minutes ago to the surprise and delight of the many who have gathered outside buckingham palace actually getting out of the car and greeting some of the thousands who have since yesterday, since the awful news broke yesterday have been coming to the gates of buckingham palace to pay their respects to queen elizabeth and now to greet king charles iii. we can hear some of them singing god save the king as they greet him and look to him now to lead this nation in the very stoic and classy way that queen elizabeth did for all of
6:18 am
those 70 years. so this is a joyful moment amid great sadness, of course. this is a joyful moment for those outside of buckingham palace seeing their new monarch, king charles iii getting out of the car and greet them in a human moment for him and what a lot of people wouldn't have expected of charles. he is not necessarily known as having the common touch as much as some others, for instance, his own son william. but here you are certainly seeing it from him and this will stand him in good stead as he takes on the extraordinary legacy of his mother, queen elizabeth ii. >> bill: the irony, dana, his first wife was considered the queen of the people. and just not to overstate it but in his first public act as king, he chose this and in the
6:19 am
year 2022, it is probably considered appropriate and necessary and for him to tie the bond from his mother of 70 years of rule to him, this will be seen as a moment. >> dana: duncan, your thoughts as he continues to shake the hands. there is a lot of condolences being offered but many smiles as well and good wishes for his reign. >> listening to you and watching what we're seeing now, there is a sense and i've never personally noticed that yet, there is a sense that prince charles finally as king charles is stepping out of the shadows. as bill mentioned, prince charles, when he was prince charles, was absolutely overshadowed by his first wife, diana, we know how awful that was and the whole episode could have stopped this day from being possible.
6:20 am
what we're seeing outside buckingham palace might not ever happened had it been for the queen. doesn't it feel like prince charles wants to come out of the shadow and he has been waiting since he was 4 years old for this job. and the last person that would wish her death being as abrupt as it ultimately was he is ready and stepping out at buckingham palace is for me a symbol i'm out of the shadows, this is my time and we are going to do this together. very important that first images of him not shaking prime minister's hands but members of the public. >> bill: listen, here in the u.s. we expect our -- he is not a politician but we expect our people of the public to interact with us this way. but it has not been that way for the crown going back hundreds of years.
6:21 am
>> dana: i like listening to some of the stories, for example, queen elizabeth ii and her younger sister convinced their parents, as world war ii ended, for them to be able to go out without s courts and being with the people and everybody dancing down whitehall. we forget that -- because we have our freedom and we can go where we want, it is quite different for somebody like king charles. he has lived with it and understands -- i believe he understands the privilege of the position he is in and the responsibility that we have here. we don't know how long he will continue to do this. i came to the end and did the whole thing. >> bill: the king just worked the rope line in ways that we are not used to seeing. >> dana: that's right. you see all the flowers that
6:22 am
are lined up there and he looks like he will head back into buckingham palace, just one moment. see what they are deciding. >> bill: his speech, by the way, this afternoon at 1:00 our time, 6:00 prime time in the evening in london. i think you can make the argument, i don't know if duncan would agree or not, but the words he uses today will possibly be the most important speech he gives as a king. >> dana: duncan, do you have a thought on that? >> i think your guess nigel farage alluded to this earlier. make month mistake. today we'll see a significant moment in british history when the new king of england actually talks in public for the first time as king. he may set out some priorities and pay tribute to his incredible mother and i'm sure he will pay tribute to those
6:23 am
people he has met, the public reaction for his mother has never been seen like this before. that is a moment that will go down. i don't know, you think about it. prince charles was prince charles age 4 when he knew one day this speech would be made, you know. but 70 years ago. i don't know if you have ever had to give a speech at a wedding or something and had a few months to think about it. i think it makes it even more nerve racking. having 70 years to plan your speech but a big, significant moment. he has to get off on exactly the right footing. >> he is walking over to the other side of buckingham palace with additional flowers laid at the gate. hip hip hooray for the king and queen consort. >> bill: a moment ago we heard in the background they've
6:24 am
changed the words of the song from god save the queen to god save the king. it was one of the first times we've heard that. >> dana: i imagine it would be a little jarring for people who never sang god save the king. >> bill: two things that strike me watching the hours of coverage we had earlier today. one was from martha when she said that it's hard to find anyone in the u.k. who has lived under a different monarch. >> dana: right. >> bill: number one. and piers morgan who said she has never played the victim card in her life. you can debate whether or not that's the case but there is a strong argument to be made that is true. >> dana: stiff upper lip. all they went through as a family. every family has some dysfunction. theirs happened to be on display for everyone to see in the world as king charles walks
6:25 am
with queen consort camilla. let's see if they're about to enter buckingham palace. it's an incredibly weighty day and also mourning the loss of his mother. to walk into buckingham palace for the first time without her. it is a huge palace but it might feel a little lonely today. any thoughts, duncan as he talks with queen consort camilla into buckingham palace for the first time? >> yes. people may not realize listening and watching that actually it is -- buckingham palace is a symbolic building where the monarch works. visiting american presidents are hosted. prince charles lives in st.
6:26 am
james palace. will he move to buckingham palace or even use it? we still don't know. but on a day like today and over the next few days, buckingham palace once again is that central national focal point of the royal family. it is where bride and groom head on the day of their wedding to the balcony of buckingham palace and, of course, it was the stage when we saw the jubilee in july -- in june. the arrival at buckingham palace is symbolism. he probably doesn't have a toothbrush in there. he lives across the road. >> bill: i would beg to differ. >> dana: i'm sure someone will bring one for him. a question about staff. when we have a changing of a president here, anybody who served at the pleasure of that president your job is over at noon on january 20th. but is there more of a seamless continuity here in terms of
6:27 am
staff? >> that's actually a really good question, thank you. actually, prince charles has his own staff and so do william and kate and so actually still do the likes of princess anne and the others going down the pecking order. the queen's staff, i will have to confess i don't think we know whether the queen's staff are unemployed now or whether they will be absorbed within king charles' offices. i actually don't know the answer to that. but i will put up my defense. this event is so unusual that unless i could speak beyond the grave to my great grandmother i couldn't ask anyone what happened last time. >> dana: nobody has any idea. it has been 70 years. we don't expect you to have the answer to all these questions. i was just curious. >> i will find that out. >> bill: you are terrific. hang on. we have a lot of other voices
6:28 am
we'll work into our coverage. stand by in london. lorna shaddok. welcome to our coverage. tell us what you've seen today. >> i'm in central london. but yesterday evening, in fact, i was outside buckingham palace as the news broke. there was a real moment, a somber moment as the crowd realized what had happened and the royal staff came out and put the notice on the railings of the palace. people moved forward. and within a few moments you start evidence to see the first of those many bouquets you have been showing being laid outside buckingham palace. there is a mixed atmosphere. not only is it very somber, the death of a beloved monarch, but also a questioning of what comes next now. we haven't had a king here in
6:29 am
the u.k. for 70 years, over 70 years. as a result, not many people can even remember a time when the queen wasn't on the throne. as a result, i think people are somewhat at sea and why it is so comforting, i think, for them to see the new king out and about in front of buckingham palace meeting people and giving the sense of stability and continuity. >> bill: can you help us understand? charles has talked about reforming the monarchy. to what degree i'm not certain just yet. i think part of it has to do with the amount of real estate they have, for one. and the way they live, for two. what would you expect these so-called reforms to be, lorna? >> you are right. it has been widely reported that prince charles does have interesting plans for the future of the monarchy. none have been made public. he wants to really slim down
6:30 am
the number of so-called working royals. royals who receive money from the public purse and have titles as such. a little glimpse of that at the end of the jubilee when various members of the royal family appeared on the balcony. we saw just prince charles and the queen and william and the three children. maybe his desire moving forward to slim down the number of royals who take money from the public purse. there are also potentially to open up more of the royal family's property portfolio including buckingham palace which opens for a little while in the summer. for the rest of the time is relatively off limits. there are reports he might even have what is known as a flat above the shop and open up the rest of the palace itself to the public a bit more often. potentially do the same at balmoral and perhaps even
6:31 am
sandringham. taking a lesson from his mother, the queen. who was nothing if that adaptable to the demands of the modern age. the royal family very aware of the need to keep in step with the times. charles clearly wanting to make sure that -- >> dana: we'll continue our coverage in a moment. we'll be right back. ke a momento address my fellow veterans because i know so many of you have served our country honorably. one of the benefits that we as a country give you as a veteran is the eligibility for a va loan, for up to 100% of your home's value. if you need cash for you family, call newday usa. with automatic authority from the va, we can say yes when banks say no... give us a call.

. >> dana: republican governor brian kemp facing democratic challenger stacey abrams in a 2018 rematch. kemp narrowly beat abrams in that race and another close race is in store this november. governor kemp with us now. want to bring up the fox news poll. approve 52, disapprove 45. that's -- that's a decent number in today's politics. then you have this with stacey abrams at 44% and i'm a little
6:37 am
bit confused on my numbers. i want the hear from you what you think the state of the race is. this week "the new york times" wrote a piece saying the democrats are worried that stacey abrams is way behind in their minds and they are worried she will lose to you. >> well, thank you, guys, for having me this morning. i know the country and the world is mourning the loss of the queen. we're morning the loss of two of georgia's finest who got gunned down last night, two cobb county sheriff's deputies serving a warrant. i want to say my condolences on their families. people in georgia are focused on what the issues on. i had outside noise play into that. stacey abrams is more worried about her doanors in california and new york want her to do but what the people in georgia need to flight inflation and the gas
6:38 am
pump and grocery stores and what's happening at the border. the president who said he wouldn't raise taxes on hard working people in the middle class in the country has done that and they are increasing spending when we have 9% inflation. so i think that's one reason we're doing as well as we are. look, this is going to be a tough race. she has all the resources she needs. she had those way back in june. she has been outspending us 3-1. i will tell our folks don't believe any polls you see. >> bill: the headline says democrats fret as stacey abrams struggles in georgia governor's race. she has been trailing republican rival governor kemp alarming democrats who celebrated her as the master status behind the shift. she shocked the country and narrowly lost to you in 2018. four years later do you think her ground game is as good or
6:39 am
better than it was in 2018? if so, how have you responded in kind now to beat her in 22? >> i don't think you can underestimate her ground game and we've been focused on it and something we worked hard in the primary, which is why we overperformed. we're working hard now. i think the real risk with the democrats eptionly people left of center and people in the middle is, you know, they wanted our economy opened up. she criticized when i did that. they wanted our kids back in the classroom where the data and the trump administration and biden administration says they need to be. she was opposed to that. she criticized me, suspending the gas tax and sending a billion dollars of georgia taxpayers money back to them to help them fight through 40-year high inflation and they certainly haven't forgotten her pressure in pulling the cancel culture attack on major league baseball to get the all-star
6:40 am
game moved. people if georgia realize who is fighting for them and that's my administration with the great partners in the general assembly we have. we've been putting them first and not letting a lot of outside noise distract us from our mission of serving the people here. >> dana: can you give us your take, then, on how the u.s. senate race between warnock and herschel walker is affecting or not your race. people in georgia must be flooded with all the political ads they're seeing. democrats are throwing a lot of money at that race and love to keep warnock in the seat. walker is moving up in the polls as well. >> i think from a republican perspective, guys, look, senator warnock and stacey abrams, they have outspent our whole ticket probably 3 or 4 to 1 all summer. we have weathered that storm. i think people are tired of just over the top ads. they want the truth. and that's what we've been giving them. i think you will see more fire power coming from us but also
6:41 am
from the walker camp and other republicans on the ticket. we don't have out of state billionaires sending us million dollar checks and we don't have national unions sending us million dollar checks. but we're getting close enough now where we'll be able to compete with them and we have a better record than they do quite honestly. warnock has voted with biden 96% of the time. abrams gets credit for getting him elected president and auditioned to be his vice president and we have 40-year high inflation. we were talking with families the other day talking about if you go to the grocery store mustard was $1, now it's $5. people see that every day and we're fighting to help people fight through. >> bill: it's fun to watch. 59 days and counting, sir. thank you for checking in and we hope stacey abrams seps our invitation to come on our program. in the meantime the border crisis is coming to president

6:56 am
>> jump in, grab her, grab her. grab her. >> there has been fewer crossings than normal this past week because of those types of conditions. but now that water levels are starting to drop, we're starting to see all of the migrants who have been waiting to cross, like this group of 500. the largest group we have seen in months, and more just like it are expected over the next few days. when groups like this come across it overwems border patrol taking agents away from their posts to process them which allows migrants who don't want to be caught to get into the country elsewhere. that's leading to at least a couple of car chases a day for law enforcement like this one. a smuggler gets pulled over and as officers approach the car everyone inside bolts out into the field. other car chases do not end so well. some drivers refuse to pull over and end up getting in crashes killing or injuring other folks on the road.

ascending the throne in an era of great uncertainty for his country and the monarchy itself. many gathering outside the palace there reacting to the news as they ponder the future. give this a listen. >> i think it's more than just london mourning. it's the world. we're waiting to see what happens. >> she has been our queen all my life. a new prime minister, new monarch. >> i do wonder how king charles will do, because i don't think he is very popular in britain. it just feels like the constant in the world is gone now. >> dana: alex hogan is live outside buckingham palace. good afternoon, i should say. >> good afternoon, bill and dana. the new king, king charles iii is here at buckingham palace greeting mourners and a state tribute of morning after the death of queen elizabeth ii.
7:03 am
earlier this morning for an hour across the country we heard church bells ring over and over grieving for her loss and celebrating the life of the 96-year-old. just about an hour ago, we heard 96 times the ringing of exactly this, the sounds repeated over and over. 96 time gun salute for every year of her life. she took the throne in 1952 at the age of 25 years old after the death of her father king george iv. her core nation in 1953 watched by millions of people on television. now her death is elevating prince charles to king. his new title is king charles iii. this change elevating the rest of the royal family members making them one step closer to being next in line for the throne. king charles iii started really stepping in for his mother increasingly over the last year. this is because more and more
7:04 am
she was giving away some of her royal duties as her health deteriorated. now that he is king the core nation will not take place for a while but the assertion council meets after a monarch dies as soon as possible at james palace. the royal family, counselors, as well as the prime minister. the new king will soon meet with the prime minister today before he addresses the country about the loss of the queen and the loss of his mother. crowds have been gathering here outside of buckingham palace to honor the queen the 70 years she reigned, a symbol of british tradition, who is now simply gone. >> never known anything different. she has been our queen all this -- all my life. so it will be a huge terribly sad. but pleased that she went quietly in her sleep. >> just to pay my respects pretty much because it is quite a sad day, isn't it? she has been like a constant
7:05 am
for more than 70 years. >> there are large groups of people who consider themselves royalists and others who might not support the monarchy as much but do support the queen and you can see from the crowds growing behind me, bill and dana, how much support there is here and how much people in england want to be part of this day. >> dana: good to have you there for us. >> bill: they do ceremony quite well in central london. tributes to the queen pouring in from royal leaders. griff jenkins has a look at that from washington >> few figures in history have been as revered around the world. we're seeing that in the outpouring of condolences. here at home flags are now flying at half staff. president biden visited the british embassy yesterday signing the condolence book. afterwards he paid his respects. >> president biden: i had the opportunity to meet her before she passed and she is an incredibly gracious and decent woman. our thoughts and prayers of the
7:06 am
american people are with the people of the united kingdom, commonwealth and their grief. >> she met with 13 different u.s. presidents from treuman, kennedy to reagan and carter, george w. bush, obama and trump. on the global stage nearly every world leader is offering tribute. prime minister trudeau said. for most canadians we have known no other sovereign. our heart felt condolences to members of the royal family. macron saying she embodied the british nation's continuity and unity for over 70 years. i remember her as a friend of france, kind hearted queen who left a lasting impression. beyond heads of state pope francis offering prayers for her eternal rest and even the dalai lama wrote to king charles praising his mother's
7:07 am
service. as we head into the next 10 days of remembrance president biden is reportedly expected to be among the many world leaders to attend the queen's funeral. the white house not confirming that. an interesting list of who is there. >> bill: thanks, griff, nice to see you in washington >> dana: joining us for more on this martha maccallum, anchor of "the story" who made it to london for us. thank you for being there and let's get your observations as this has unfolded. >> hi, dana and bill. good morning to both of you from buckingham palace. obviously there is a lot underway. there are lots of people gathering here and for the very first time the royal standard flag has been raised behind us over buckingham palace in honor of the fact that king charles iii is in residence. i know you heard earlier about the fact that he spent a little time with the crowds here and had a quick exchange with some of them. this is an enormous day for him. he will speak tonight around 6:00 local time. make his first address to the
7:08 am
nation as king. a moment he has been waiting for his whole life. it is conflicted with a lot of grief, a lot of sadness for the loss of his mother as the world outpouring is just beginning and will stretch over the 10 days of this period of mourning that is in effect right now in great britain. of course, everybody watches the younger members of the family, prince william looking for an appearance from william and kate and perhaps their children to perhaps go out and take a look at some of the flowers that have been amassed outside of windsor, the queen's main home and their home as well. it's just the beginning and starting to sink in for people here that the queen is gone. the person that has been a stalwart throughout their lives is now no longer. she left an enormous legacy, enormous shoes to fill. >> i imagine the impact of that struck a lot of people, perhaps
7:09 am
millions when they thought about that thought there, martha. you mentioned the roll-out. 10, 12 days, a big plan in motion. but we don't know when the funeral will happen. do we have a better -- >> this is an operation that has been underway since the 1960s. it is called operation london bridge. in the initial stages it was all about the notifying and mi-6 notifying the prime minister. today we heard from a number of members of parliament. we saw a service at st. paul's. charles returning to buckingham palace and the queen's body will be brought here by train or plane in the coming days getting ready for the funeral in 10 days, known as d-day. the beginning of this process. >> dana: one of the things that is remarkable, call for number five. i know you can't see it. this is the video of her
7:10 am
repairing a motor truck and driving that truck and being a part of the world war ii effort. that's how long her life -- she had a long life, a wonderful life of 96 years. one of the things that people are so affectionate about her and admire her for is she was willing to do a little bit of her part during that war effort. martha cannot hear me unfortunately. >> bill: if you still got us here. we were showing from 1945 video of the queen as a very young woman who had the option to leave the u.k. and come to the u.s. for protection during the war and decided to stay. just the act of getting involved in the war effort endeared her at a young age to her people. >> dana: after all of that, extremely diplomatic as well.
7:11 am
her first foreign policy debut was war and she helped margaret thatcher with the leadership from the u.k. during the cold war in conjunction with pope john paul and ronald reagan amongst others. and then there was 9/11 and in which she had to do something remarkable and had her royal band play the united states -- our national anthem outside of buckingham palace. >> bill: longevity has it perks, doesn't it? you look at 70 years on the throne and this is what you get. 80% of brits have never known another monarch. 15 prime ministers, the first winston churchill. reign spanned 30% of u.s. history. a third of our history and reigned for 14 different u.s. presidents. i think it's cool the last 24 hours how many images of history that we have seen her with so many world figures over their time that she has been on
7:12 am
the throne. >> dana: martha, you are here again with us, i believe. we were marking about the queen's amazing longevity and her willingness to serve the people. i was listening to a speech that she gave in which she said i'm not going to be somebody who can lead troops into battle, but i can give you my heart. and i think that she -- everybody makes mistakes and everyone is human. 100% of the time she seemed to have that dedication front and center for her people. >> absolutely, dana. i think back to that initial statement that she said in kenya at the age of 21 about i will serve for the rest of my life, whether it be short or long, i will always be in your service. in that same speech she said but i can't do it alone. i'm not strong enough or have the strength to do it alone. i will need your support to help me through it. she said that at the age of 21.
7:13 am
i think she had such wisdom at that young age realizing the role she was stepping into and how difficult it might be for some people to take her seriously as a very young princess, becoming queen at the age of 25 in a world of men, post world war ii, early 1950s. not a lot of women were in the workplace at that time. england was really an its knees after world war ii. it was victorious but took a big battering economically. there was a lot of rebuilding to do and she really stood up to that task in terms of creating that kind of backbone for the nation that they have turned to again and again and again regardless of her prime minister or what else was going on in the world as the central figure. she did accomplish a lot when you look at the relationship with ireland and south africa. some of those moments are really pivotal. we'll have a chance to talk about them in the coming days. i think those really are
7:14 am
probably the strongest parts of her legacy when it goes to the relationship that the u.k. had with other countries. >> bill: i will press our luck here, martha, with one more question. we're less than three hours away from the moment of the day, prince charles -- sorry, king charles iii first arrest to his people. and i frankly have no idea what he will say, but there will be memorable lines in this speech that he has had years to think about. how do you think it is going to go? >> well, you know, i think he hopes so. i think it's probably a moment of some nerves for him even at the age of 73. he has been watched as the person in waiting for his entire life essentially. he has had a tough act to follow. for many years he really was not sort of the genial favorite family member of most people in the united kingdom. he has worked over the years to
7:15 am
earn their good graces. he had an awkwardness as a young man. the country waited for him to settle down and get married, which he did with princess diana and divorced one of the most beloved figures from the public perspective in the country's history as well. it has been a complicated ride for king charles iii, and i think this is obviously a big moment for him. a lot of that is water under the bridge. has been sort of worked through over time. but this is a big moment for him and very difficult act to follow and indeed you will hear a lot of grief from the perspective of the son and what he -- how he perceived her as a mom and grandmother and great grandmother and also what she wanted more than anything was the stability and continuation of the dynasty and the windsor family. that's a mantel he takes on now, bill. >> bill: thank you, martha. sleep when you can. you will be working a lot over the next 10 or 12 days or
7:16 am
whenever it is. >> great to see you both. >> bill: back at home the suspect in a horrific shooting spree that killed four people in memphis this week. age 19, set to be arraigned any moment now. we're live inside the courtroom in memphis, tennessee. >> dana: public safety is one of the top issues in organ. christine draizen will join us live this hour. it's called the newday 100 because it lets veterans borrow up to 100% of their home's value. not just 80% like some typical loans. that extra cash can make a huge difference in these times of skyrocketing prices. here's more good news: home values have skyrocketed too. that means even more cash! take out an average of $60,000 to pay down your high-rate credit card debt, consolidate your second mortgage, personal loans, and car loans, and lower your payments by $600 every month.

7:22 am
months into a three-year prison sentence. jonathan serrie has the latest from memphis. >> lives were shattered, american city went on lockdown. the man accused of causing all this mayhem is appearing before a judge being arraigned on first degree murder charges. police arrested 19-year-old ezekiel kelly wednesday night after a day of random shootings that killed four people and injured three others. the defendant who live streamed one of the shootings on facebook has a prior conviction for aggravated assault but was released in march after serving only 11 months of a three-year prison sentence. this summer a new law took effect in tennessee requiring violent offenders to serve 100% of their sentences. after wednesday's shooting spree the memphis mayor praised the truth in sentencing lot. the d.a. had initially opposed the idea but said he will follow the law. >> there is no tension between the mayor and i right now.
7:23 am
both of us think that all these cases including the tragic incidents of last night need to be dealt with strongly. >> because of that livestream facebook says it is working closely with memphis police. the company says it rapidly identified the livestream and took it down even before police issued their first public alert. dana, back to you. >> a hell of a week in memphis. lawrence jones here in studio. good morning to you. you've been watching this one and saw the jogger from the other day jumped at 4:00 in the morning and killed and allegedly that suspect has been arraigned as well. >> these are high-profile murders and incidents that have been happening across the country. this isn't anything new with what we've been experiencing for almost two years in the country where the crimes have become more brazen. it is very clear the criminals
7:24 am
aren't afraid of law enforcement. they have no respect for the communities. they livestream it, they post it on facebook, they aren't afraid to show their faces. people know who they are. when you go into communities, if you want to know who the criminals are, people in the community will tell you who they are. but these people even when they are arrested, they are released back on the street. cross the country we'll have the story. two days ago i went to baltimore to interview a marine who stopped a mass shooting. he had gun on him. he used a non-violent technique to disarm the guy after he had pistol whipped someone. he was arrested after doing that because -- baltimore you aren't supposed to have the gun in the bar. he ran toward danger, saved lives and he had paramedics saying why do we have to arrest this guy? we have to make an example out of him after the lieutenant arrived on the scene. i was telling this off air.
7:25 am
what i'm afraid of as this continues in the country, that we'll have vigilante justice. we can't have it in a civilized society. when there is a void there and communities are begging for help, law enforcement are leaving the profession because they aren't appreciated or afraid if they make one bad move or they do the right thing they'll lose their family, their livelihood and freedom. someone will feel that void and there will be vigilante justice but we don't want that to happen. the mayors aren't stepping up, the d.a.s aren't. judges aren't stepping up to the plate. who will do it? that's where vigilante justice comes into play. >> dana: a poll the top voting issues for nationwide registered voters, economy, 77%, gun policy 62, violent crime at 60%. that's a reflection of what you are seeing as you travel the country. >> you hear from the left all the time when there is this
7:26 am
mass shooting that the guns are a problem. yet when it comes to everyday crime on the day-to-day basis, this happens all the time. chicago, baltimore, philly, new orleans murder capital, they aren't as aggressive on these offenders with their guns. it is just -- i don't get it. i don't understand how one moment when all the cameras are there, there is a issue and you want to go after them. people commit acts with guns that are illegally possessed and they do nothing. i've said this many times. there used to be this notion of criminal justice reform that when people turned their life around you have the first step act, bipartisan agreement that people should be given second chances. what we're seeing now are offenders that never turned their life around, right? and we're giving them a second chance. there is no deterrent there. >> bill: both these cases in memphis that's the case. people will learn about this
7:27 am
and say what in the hell is going on in that court system when you don't fulfill even a third of the sentence that you were given? now you are back on the street and killing people that should be alive today. >> it is no longer criminal justice reform. the left made it clear under the leadership of soros and his election of these d.a.s. they want to empty the prisons. they believe people should have 20 years max even if they commit murder. the criminal justice and jails were created for people that are a risk to society. you mean to tell me you didn't know this guy was a risk to society? >> bill: when he is laughing and smiling at the camera that tells you everything he needs to know. i'm looking forward to story out of baltimore. >> dana: president biden departing a short time ago for the battleground state of ohio. he will appear with the democrat tim ryan. will that help or hurt tim ryan in the senate race?

event in june. since august, she has been slamming the administration saying the president is letting solar manufacturers be undercut by china and working with g.o.p. senator rob portman to protect ohio jobs in that ad. portman is here today. i spoke to him a while ago hoping the president's remarks don't turn political. we've been hearing so much of the ultra-maga rhetoric in many of the president's events. this is an official event. not a campaign event. >> bill: well done. a lot going on there tying it together. nice to see you in columbus. >> dana: let's bring in shannon bream, the new anchor of "fox news sunday" and we'll talk about that in a moment. the president will probably make a lot of trips to ohio. in pennsylvania already and he has had these attacks. listen to this one. >> president biden: not everyone republican is a maga republican. not every republican embraces extreme ideology. i worked with them.
7:36 am
there are still a few mainstream republicans. the extreme set of maga republicans has chosen to go backwards. >> dana: we might be on day nine of who he meant who is a maga republican and who is not. how do you see it? >> i would love to ask him what are the maga policies you are talking about? let's throw some names out there. what do you think of mitch mcconnell, maga or not? what about chuck grassley and ron johnson? he would probably say yes on ron johnson. interesting to see how this administration wants to define that. i think they know it has echoes, as we've said, of the deplorables comment from former secretary clinton. you have to be really careful. it tends to fire up the base who is very supportive of the former president's policies, president trump. and of his candidates. i think they have to calculate. they must have thought there was a net positive but as we say, if you explain in politics you are probably losing.
7:37 am
>> bill: getting a lot of questions. the only phrase he left out is super size maga. maybe that comes next week. we'll see. big trip in ohio. tim ryan will be there. he has been critical even 24 hours ago as jacqui showed us. interesting to some the travels of the president who chooses to be in person and who does not. interesting parlor game to watch. >> some people have scheduling conflicts from stacey abrams to john fetterman. there are questions people have now. tough polling as we know for this administration and president on a number of issues from covid, border, economy. that candidate in that district will have to say what the are top issues here. to my potential constituents have a problem with the way the president is handling this? there is a lot of nuance to the individual districts. statewide races are different. it has been interesting to see which candidates want to show up and say this is my
7:38 am
president, he speaks for me. and others who said i've got a scheduling conflict. he will be out on the trail or and more. >> dana: he feels like he has the wind at his back. let's talk about you. the new anchor host of "fox news sunday". we're thrilled for you and known you for so long and we know all of the skills that you bring to this job and you are incredible experiences, how much you love this country and really love what you do. what can we expect from the new "fox news sunday"? >> i will use all the lessons bill hemmer taught me as his co-anchor on "america's newsroom" to put onto the show. we're going to do the inside the beltway policy lawmakers and newsmakers will happen every week. exclusives from both sides of the aisle. senator tester and tim scott to talk about major issues. the maga conversation and rhetoric. can they work together? they have issues they care deeply about, education, veterans. we'll press on those. we have special coverage of the
7:39 am
events in london and guests to talk about the queen and her legacy. it's 9/11 as well. we have special remembrance episcopal we'll follow around the country. andy petitte from the yankees will join us, too. we'll do entertainment, sports and andy will make a lot of sense when you see him on sunday. >> bill: two years ago you said you were moving back to washington and here you are. good luck on sunday. the big kickoff show for you. well done. >> dana: congratulations to sheldon bream. >> my much better half. >> bill: d.c. mayor bowser understanding the scope of the crisis at the border as her city struggles to court. law and order a top issue in the oregon race for governor. a surprise how close it is. we'll talk with the republican candidate for that office. her name is christine drazan.

want a permanent solution to homelessness? you won't get it with prop 27. it was written and funded by out-of-state corporations to permanently maximize profits, not homeless funding. 90% of the profits go to out-of-state corporations permanently. only pennies on the dollar for the homeless permanently. and with loopholes, the homeless get even less permanently. prop 27. they didn't write it for the homeless. they wrote it for themselves.
7:44 am
>> dana: rising crime and public safety are top issues for oregon voters as they choose their next governor.
7:45 am
christine drazan, great to have you. your campaign is picking up with buzz. tell me the state of the race as you see it. >> we are up today and could not be more excited where we stand in the race. we are leading in the polls and people from oregon are ready for change. >> when you think of the news stories coming out of portland for three years running. how do folks feel about that? >> yeah, they are looking around. they don't recognize their own state. they certainly are not proud of their own city right now. and oregon is beautiful. it used to be the most safe and certainly the most beautiful state in the nation. and that's not the experience we have now. people in oregon are looking for change in this election and opportunity to flip our state. they are asking for it. as they are looking for leadership to insure public safety, to improve graduation
7:46 am
requirements and certainly to address affordability, which is out of control here in the state of oregon. >> dana: do you think if people don't get that kind of change that they would consider leaving? >> it is happening all the time even now. people are voting with their foot. they are going to, frankly, republican states. looking for opportunities to be able to keep their kids in school full-time. they are looking for a better business environment. my job as oregon's next governor is keep people here and encourage families to stay and build their future in our beautiful state. >> bill: oregon is leaning democrat which should not be much of a surprise. it has been blue for a long time and been years since a republican governor. tina kotek is a democrat. betsy johnson was a democrat running as an independent and there is you.
7:47 am
i know the thinking is johnson will take democratic voters away from kotek and gives you the opportunity to shoot the gap. >> it's very realistic. it is a team effort. you don't run races alone. it is about people choosing to have a new direction for their own state. we will only get that done oregon voters need to make the decision not adopt status quo and more of the same but choose to have our state be led in a new direction. they are both democrats. by any other name they're both democrats. the opportunity in this race really is do you want more of the same or do you want a new direction? >> dana: this is your roadmap for oregon. provide tools to ensure homelessness is rare and temporary. i am curious as governor what could you do that would change that on the streets of portland?
7:48 am
>> i will declare a homelessness state of emergency in the state of oregon. it is essential and necessary and we have more than enough money to solve this crisis in our state. billions of dollars in oregon has been dedicated to housing support and shelter beds as well as supports at different levels of government to continue to fight this problem. the problem is there is no leadership and no one saying this isn't good enough for the people on our streets today. there is no compassion or dignity and allowing people to continue to live in conditions which are unsafe for them and certainly not acceptable for the communities and frankly the neighborhoods that they are in. i did a ride along recently. there was an encampment on the street. ot on the other side were chain link fences with trikes in the
7:49 am
yard. >> bill: you put an ad, a tent city goes on forever. well -- we'll see whether people in oregon are ready to change it. no republican has held that office since 1987. thank you for your time today. >> thank you. >> bill: emotional outpouring in the streets of central london. we watched the new king get off his plane earlier today and then head to buckingham palace. he is exactly two hours and 11 minutes from a speech that he will deliver to the people of his nation on how he will rule as the next king. stay tuned. veteran homeowners. prices on everything have gone up and up. the good news? so has the value of your home. and maybe a lot more than you think. if you need cash to stay ahead, call newday. use your va home loan benefit to borrow up to 100% of your home's value. not just 80% like some other lenders. take out an average of $60,000
7:50 am
and lower your payments by $600 a month with the newday 100 va cash out loan. pay down high-rate credit cards, personal loans, even car loans. missed a payment along the way? newday's been granted automatic authority by the va. we look at your whole picture. when lenders say no to a veteran, newday can say yes. can you believe someone thought this would help you hear better? and no one will notice it? genius. now this is eargo. made to be heard. not seen. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪

>> harris: the real reasons why president biden will do campaign events but not sit for a major one-on-one interview. more than 200 days and king charles iii is in charge now arriving at buckingham palace as the world mourns the death
7:55 am
of his mom, queen elizabeth. plus the democrat candidate pushing voters aside by agreeing to a debate with republican dr. oz but only after early voting begins. oz demanding fetterman step up. dr. oz is in "the faulkner focus". marc thiessen, steve hilton, raymond arroyo top of the hour. >> dana: bowser signing an executive order to address the thousands of migrants arriving in the nation's capital from texas. edward lawrence is live at the white house. this won't let up. will the mayor be able to make a difference? >> the mayor keeps asking for help. let's start off by saying d.c. declared itself a sanctuary cities. so far d.c. has about 9200 migrants that have been bused by the governors of arizona and texas into washington, d.c. now, with d.c. declaring a
7:56 am
state of emergency it frees up $10 million to stand up an agency help with greengt and location services. the texas attorney general says texas taxpayers have shelled out more than $850 per year or $70 million a month to handle illegal migration. d.c. has a population that is like del rio texas with a 35,000 population. in july alone they encountered more than the city's population in one month. the d.c. mayor upset about the lack of federal support that she is getting for the small percentage getting bused to her city. >> is the federal government? yes, the president, the white house, and anybody else who was involved in the national guard not being granted for the district's humanitarian response. yes.
7:57 am
>> she is upset about that. 3 1/2 million migrants have come into the country since president biden took office. five times the population of washington, d.c. back to you. >> dana: incredible story. we'll keep following it. thank you, edward. >> bill: a 92-year-old grandmother took up an invitation from her grandson seven years ago started a mission to visit all 63 of america's national parks. they are brad and grandma joy ryan with us now. a lifetime adventure that started in 2015. how are you guys doing? good morning. you look great. >> thank you. >> we're fine, thank you. >> bill: grandma joy, can i call you that? >> sure. >> bill: thank you for that. you look great. your grandson gives you a phone call seven years ago, wants to go on this great adventure and you tell him when are you picking me up, remember that phone call? >> oh, yes. it was great.
7:58 am
i'm glad he called. >> bill: how did that feel? >> oh, well, it feels great. i wasn't doing anything at the time, just sitting there resting, so if he wanted to go i was willing. >> bill: she had no hesitation. she said i'm on board. at the time you said you were suffering from some mental health issues and you wanted to get outside and do all of this. so it's hawaii, alaska, california and on and on it goes. how has this relationship been with grandma joy? >> i think it has been transformational for both of us because i think like a lot of people her age she felt left behind and i was in my fourth year of veterinary school at ohio state university and i wanted to break away from the stress of that professional bubble for a minute and remember what life is really all about. the fact she came along with me at age 85 and went camping for the first time. climbed a mountain for the
7:59 am
first time and why we continue to travel. if you go to our instagram page you can see what's possible for people of any age. she was 91 last year. she went whitewater rafting in class three rapids in alaska. no matter how old you are, life is still happening and make that adventure happen for somebody in your life as well. >> bill: brad, you had an expectation but found out she changed you, didn't you? >> 100%. if you want to know what resilience is you need to speak to somebody from this generation. it puts a lot of the things going on in our lives today in perspective. it definitely got me back to reality and it's been a positive experience for me in every possible way. we've driven over 50,000 miles at this point. been to every state in the beautiful country. one park left to go about 6700 miles from her front porch. >> bill: where is number 63?
8:00 am
>> national park of american somoa. >> bill: listen, grandma joy, pack your bags. one more trip, okay? good luck. >> all right. >> bill: thanks to both of you for sharing your story. >> dana: that was so sweet. oh, i love that story, grandma joy. america's grandma. thank you for being with us today. harris faulkner is here. she is next. >> harris: we begin with this fox news alert. in just under two hours king charles iii first address to the united kingdom and british commonwealth in his new role. the u.k. and the world, of course, in mourning today after his mother, queen elizabeth ii, passed away yesterday at the age of 96. i'm harris faulkner and you are in "the faulkner focus". the official 10-day period of mourning begins today. operation london bridge, the carefully orchestrated and detailed plan for handling her death now playing out. gun salutes
