ALMOST 2,000 people of all ages turned out to witness Bromsgrove’s official Proclamation of King Charles III which took place at the Jubilee Bandstand in Sanders Park this afternoon.

The Deputy Lord Lieutenant Paul West welcomed everyone and explained why the historic event was being held and how ‘the crown had passed in an unbroken line from monarch to monarch’.

He added the reading of the Accession Proclamation was being carried out after the national one in London yesterday and the Worcestershire one earlier today.

Also in an attendance were members of the Armed Forces, the Royal British Legion, the Bromsgrove Court Leet, Bromsgrove District Council, West Mercia Police, Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue, West Midlands Ambulance Service and other organisations, such as Scouts and Guides attended.




The declaration was read by Bromsgrove District Council Chairman, Coun Rod Laight.

Before he read it, he explained it was a tradition which spanned centuries and the ceremony ‘did not create a new King’ but was an announcement to the people – even being carried out in these days of the Internet and social media.


The proclamation (below) had been handed to him by the Deputy Lord Lieutenant – the monarch’s representative in the County.

After the Proclamation, the crowd gathered hailed ‘God Save The King’ and sang the National Anthem to conclude the ceremony.

Three cheers were also given to the new monarch.
