Prince Charles titled His Majesty, King Charles III two months ago on September 8, following the death of the late Queen Elizabeth II, at age 96.

Now, King Charles III is continuing a long tradition of the Sovereign and members of the Royal Family.

Windsor Great Park is a very popular destination featuring magnificent horticultural displays, woodland shores, historic features, wildflowers, and deer. It’s free to enter and open all year round where over five million people visit each year.

Will His Majesty follow the royal tradition of celebrating a second birthday?

The “Trooping of the Colour” has marked the official birthday of the British Sovereign for over 260 years. The ancient ceremony represents the Army’s allegiance to the Monarch bringing together over 2,400 parading soldiers, 200 horses, and 400 musicians for a nationwide celebration.

Similarly, the ceremony is held in June each year and is generally on the first Saturday of the month at the time of the late Queen Elizabeth II. His Majesty, on the other hand, is likely to have a second birthday because November is also a cold month.

Nonetheless, Buckingham Palace announced that King Charles III’s coronation will be held on Saturday 6th May 2023.
