British Queen celebrates

King Charles III and Queen Camilla are set to visit Jersey on 15 July as part of a royal tour of the Channel Islands. This visit marks the first time since 2005 that a

British monarch has visited Jersey, following Queen Elizabeth II's visit to the island.

Deputy Bailiff of Jersey, Robert MacRae, announced the upcoming royal visit to the States Assembly, detailing that the King and Queen would visit the States Assembly and Royal Court during their stay. The royal couple will then proceed to Guernsey on 16 July.

The Bailiff of Jersey's office has indicated that the visit will be primarily focused in St Helier, with additional details of the day's events to be released at a later date.

Lieutenant-Governor of Jersey, Jerry Kyd, expressed his delight regarding the visit, stating, "Their visit reflects the ancient and very personal relationship between Jersey, one of the Crown’s oldest possessions, and the Monarch, a relationship that spans eight centuries. As His Majesty’s personal representative on this wonderful island, I am extremely proud of the island and the enduring affection and loyalty of its people to the Crown."

Further details of the visit's itinerary will be shared as the date approaches. Photo by Andy Gott, Wikimedia commons.
