In this scene, we see that [[Duncan]] announces that [[Malcolm]] will be the next king and heir to the throne. He also confirms Macbeth's new title as [[Thane]] of Cawdor. The [[audience]] also sees that Macbeth is starting to become [[ambitious]]. In his [[soliloquy]] he says that 'stars hide your [[fires]] let not light see my black and [[deep]] desires.' This begins to show he is trying to keep his true feelings [[concealed]] and is now secretly [[irritated]] that he has not been named heir to the throne.
