A new Sovereign

Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, a new Sovereign has acceded to the Throne.

Charles became our King on the passing of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.  Yesterday (Saturday 10th September) at the Accession Council which took place at St James’s Palace, he was formally proclaimed King Charles III.

A proclamation ceremony for the county of Bedfordshire took place earlier today in Bedford.  This afternoon at 3.30pm the Vice-Chair of Central Bedfordshire Council read out the proclamation at Priory House.  It was a great honour to be able to attend both events.

It was clear from our new King’s first address to the nation that he shares the same values as his mother; he vowed to serve the whole nation with loyalty, respect and love. His Majesty has always taken a keen and active interest in all areas of public life with a particular passion about protecting the environment for future generations.

Following the long reign of Queen Elizabeth II, His Majesty King Charles III, will continue to inspire and lead our nation.

  2. Dunstable held a very special event yesterday with several hundred gathering in Grove Gardens to hear the Proclamation. The Deputy Lieutenant and myself as Town Mayor led the event and after three cheers for his Majesty the King we the paraded through the town to Priory Gardens where floral tributes were laid. It was so lovely to see residents walking with us to the gardens and to have the opportunity to speak with them afterwards.
