Britain’s King Charles III arrived in Berlin on Wednesday for his first foreign trip as monarch, hoping to improve the U.K.’s relations with the European Union and to show that he can win hearts and minds abroad, just as his mother did for seven decades .

Charles and Camilla, the queen consort , landed at Berlin’s government airport in the early afternoon. The king, dressed in a black coat, and his wife, in a light blue coat and a feather-trimmed teal hat worn at a jaunty angle, paused at the top of their plane’s stairs to receive a 21-gun salute as two military jets performed a flyover.

German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier welcomed the royal couple with military honors at the German capital’s historic Brandenburg Gate.

Charles, 74, who ascended the throne after the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September, is set to be crowned May 6. As Britain’s head of state, the king meets weekly with the prime minister and retains his mother’s role as leader of the Commonwealth.

He had initially planned to visit France first, but that leg of his trip was canceled because of massive protests there over planned pension changes.

Billed as a multi-day tour of the EU’s two biggest countries, the trip was designed to underscore British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s efforts to rebuild relations with the bloc after six years of arguments over Brexit and highlight the countries’ shared history as they work together to combat Russian aggression in Ukraine.

World & Nation

Can King Charles put Queen Elizabeth’s legacy behind him and craft his own?

Elizabeth’s and Charles’ lives and temperaments diverged from an early age. What will his legacy be?

Sept. 9, 2022

Billed as a multi-day tour of the European Union’s two biggest countries, the trip was designed to underscore British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s efforts to rebuild relations with the bloc after six years of arguments over Brexit and highlight the countries’ shared history as they work together to combat Russian aggression in Ukraine.

Now everything rests on the visit to Germany, where the king faces the first big test of whether he can be an effective conduit of the “soft power” the House of Windsor has traditionally wielded abroad, helping Britain pursue its geopolitical goals through the glitz and glamour of a 1,000-year-old monarchy .

Charles, a former naval officer and the first British monarch to earn a university degree, is expected to use more intellectual heft where his glamorous mother once wielded star power.

His visit to Germany will showcase these roles while also giving him an opportunity to highlight the causes he holds dear, such as sustainability and the environment.

After Queen Elizabeth II, it’s a long line of kings. Will that matter?

Barring tragedy or revolution, Britain is set to have a man instead of a woman on the throne for the next 75 years at least.

But there will also be a full dose of the pomp and circumstance that screams royal visit, starting with the ceremonial welcome at the Brandenburg Gate, the neoclassical landmark in the center of Berlin that has provided the backdrop to so much of German history . White tie and tiaras are expected to be on display during a state dinner at Schloss Bellevue, the German president’s official residence, on Wednesday evening.

Fans of the British royals started lining up early in the morning for security checks at the Brandenburg Gate, hoping to get a close-up view of Charles and Camilla. By noon, hundreds of well-wishers awaited their arrival as police and sniffer dogs worked in the area. About 1,500 spectators were admitted to the cordoned-off area, German news agency DPA reported.

Christoph Muehlbach, 59, traveled by train from Hamburg to Berlin see the king and his wife. He described himself as a supporter of the royal family for the last 20 years and said he had traveled to London in the past for weddings, anniversaries and the queen’s state funeral .

“I take great pleasure in the British royal family,” Muehlbach told the DPA.

Gabriele Fluechter, 57, of Berlin, said she came “out of love for England,” where she had attended university. She said she had seen Elizabeth on one of the queen’s visits to Berlin, and also had spotted Charles and Camilla before.

“They walked along there very casually,” she said, adding that the long wait Wednesday was no problem.

The king is scheduled to give a speech to the Bundestag, Germany’s Parliament, on Thursday. He will also meet Chancellor Olaf Scholz, talk to Ukrainian refugees and meet with British and Germany military personnel who are working together on joint projects. In the afternoon he will visit an organic farm outside of Berlin.

The royal couple go to Hamburg on Friday, where they will visit the Kindertransport memorial for Jewish children who fled from Germany to Britain during the Third Reich, and attend a green energy event before returning to the U.K.

The king was urged to make the trip by Sunak, who during his first six months in office negotiated a settlement to the long-running dispute over post-Brexit trading rules for Northern Ireland and reached a deal with France to combat the people smugglers ferrying migrants across the English Channel. Sunak hopes goodwill created by a royal visit can help pave the way for progress on other issues, including Britain’s return to an EU program that funds scientific research across Europe.

The British royals are among the most recognizable people on the planet . While their formal powers are strictly limited by law and tradition, they draw attention from the media and the public partly because of the historic ceremonies and regalia that accompany them — and also because the public is fascinated by their personal lives.

Elizabeth’s influence stemmed in part from the fact that she made more than 100 state visits during her 70 years on the throne , meeting presidents and prime ministers around the world in a reign that lasted from the Cold War to the information age.

Politicians were eager to meet the monarch for tea, if for no other reason than that she’d been around so long.

LONDON (AP) — King Charles III will travel to France and Germany for his first state visits since becoming monarch, Buckingham Palace said Friday, underscoring Britain’s efforts to build bridges with its European neighbors following years of strained relations caused by Brexit.

Charles and Camilla, the queen consort , are set to visit the European Union’s two biggest countries March 26-31, hosted by Presidents Emmanuel Macron of France and Frank-Walter Steinmeier of Germany, the palace announced.

“The visit will celebrate the U.K.’s relationship with France and Germany, marking our shared histories, culture and values,’' the palace said. “It is also a chance to look forwards and show the many ways our countries are working in partnership, whether that be to tackle climate change; respond to the conflict in Ukraine; seize trade and investment opportunities or share the best of our arts and culture.’'

Highlighting the significance of the trip is the fact that it will be the first state visit by a British monarch since 2015; the late Queen Elizabeth II , Charles’ mother, stopped traveling abroad in her later years.

The announcement came just days after Charles met with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen at Windsor Castle and British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced a breakthrough in talks to resolve the dispute over post-Brexit trading arrangements for Northern Ireland.

Sunak will be anxious to use the soft power of the monarchy to highlight the thaw in relations between the U.K. and the EU, which have been strained by Britain’s decision to leave the bloc.

The trip to France and Germany is being made at the request of the British government and at the invitations of the two governments, the palace said.

The royals will travel first to France, where they will be greeted by Macron and take part in a ceremony of remembrance at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Charles will later meet with members of the National Assembly and Senate and attend a state banquet at the Chateau de Versailles.

The French leg of the trip will also include traveling to Bordeaux, which is home to a large British community. The royal couple plan to visit an organic vineyard and one of the areas devastated by wildfires last summer.

Charles and Camilla are scheduled to travel to Germany on March 29, where they will be greeted by Steinmeier and Charles plans to address the Bundestag, Germany’s parliament. Steinmeier will also host a state banquet for the royal couple.

Charles will also meet with Ukrainian refugees in Germany, visit a joint U.K.-German military unit and travel to Hamburg, where he will visit sustainable energy projects.

While Britain’s royals have ceded most of their powers to the nation’s elected leaders, the aura of the monarchy and the pomp and ceremony of royal visits are still seen as a way to burnish the U.K.’s image and bolster ties with nations around the globe.

This role was epitomized by Elizabeth, who made 121 state visits during her 70-year reign, leading royal historian Robert Hardman to dub her “Queen of the World.”

When Charles met with von der Leyen on Monday, Buckingham Palace was quick to stress that he was working in concert with the government.

“The king is pleased to meet any world leader, if they are visiting Britain, and it is the government’s advice that he should do so,” the palace said before that meeting.

The French leg of the trip may have a particular significance for Charles, who is said to have formed a close relationship with Macron because of the two men’s shared focus on protecting the environment and fighting climate change.

Mutual respect also was expressed by Germany’s president. In a video message, Steinmeier said he last met Charles at Elizabeth’s funeral and invited him to visit Germany as king. He said that Charles’ decision to visit half a year later shows how much the king values the friendship between Germans and Britons.

The German president said Charles’ decision to travel to Germany and France “is also an important European gesture.”

“I would like to say to him, but of course also to all Britons: We in Germany, we in Europe, want close and friendly relations with the United Kingdom after Brexit as well,” Steinmeier said.

In November, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa made the first state visit to Britain of Charles’ reign. But the visit had been in the works before the late queen’s death.

Charles III welcomed in France for first visit as king

Paris (AFP) – King Charles III on Wednesday embarked on his first state visit to France as monarch, a three-day trip aimed at showing the fundamentals of the cross-Channel alliance remain strong despite a litany of political tensions after Brexit.

Issued on: 20/09/2023 - 14:25 Modified: 20/09/2023 - 16:27

Charles and his host President Emmanuel Macron were driven down the Champs-Elysees for their talks at the Elysee Palace, escorted by 136 horses of the Republican Guard and standing up with the car roof open to acknowledge the greetings of a few thousand people lining the famed avenue.

The trip was initially planned for March and was supposed to have been Charles' first state visit abroad since becoming monarch on the death of his mother Queen Elizabeth II. But it was shelved due to widespread rioting and strikes across France against pension reforms.

The original itinerary in the capital Paris and the southwestern city of Bordeaux -- packed with ceremony and pomp in a country which abolished its monarchy in the 1789 revolution and then executed the king -- is largely unchanged.

The king and his wife Queen Camilla were welcomed at Paris Orly airport by Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne, with the visit blessed by pristine autumn clear skies, an AFP correspondent said.

They then paused to remember war dead by laying wreaths at the Arc de Triomphe.

Driven down the Champs-Elysees, Macron and the king were seen chatting amicably while Camilla and Macron's wife Brigitte followed behind in a similar vehicle.

The Macrons will then in the evening host the royal couple at a sumptuous state banquet at Versailles, the palace west of the capital synonymous with French royalty.

The menu will include delicacies including blue lobster cooked as a starter by star chef Anne-Sophie Pic, who has said she was inspired by the tastes of the so called "Sun King" Louis XIV.

Dinner guests at the glittering Hall of Mirrors will include Charlotte Gainsbourg, the actor and daughter of Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin, Hugh Grant and French former Arsenal football manager Arsene Wenger.

'On his own terms'

Macron, who has faced accusations from left-wing opponents of himself behaving like a monarch, will likely be eager to ensure the event proceeds smoothly without showing excess at a time of economic frugality.

"This image, in this context, is obviously fundamentally harmful for Emmanuel Macron even if there are diplomatic imperatives behind it which also play a role," French author and academic Benjamin Morel told AFP.

The French president, who has dealt with no fewer than four UK premiers over the last half-decade during a period of political turbulence in Britain, is known to have a strong personal rapport with Charles.

Many of the engagements on the trip reflect Charles' lifelong interest in the environment, sustainability and biodiversity, as well as promoting young entrepreneurs and community.

But it is also designed to promote Charles beyond British shores, as he continues his transition from a sometimes outspoken heir to the throne to monarch.

"This is King Charles, who was only just over a year ago still Prince Charles, putting himself on the international stage as a leading public figure," said Ed Owens, a royal historian and author.

"We know that he's going to address things including his concerns around climate and environment, so he's playing to the crowd in that respect, but doing so on his own terms," he told AFP.

In Queen's footsteps

There are reminders throughout the visit of the late queen, a French-speaking francophile who made five state visits to France during her record-breaking 70-year reign.

The Arc de Triomphe was the location for her ceremonial arrival on her last state visit in 2014.

On the first, in 1957, she lunched with president Rene Coty in the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles. Charles on Thursday addresses lawmakers in the French Senate, again following in the footsteps of his mother who did the same in 2004.

The queen also spent two days in Bordeaux -- a former English possession in the Middle Ages -- on a state visit in 1992.

Charles' visit is seen as the follow-up to moves by UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to reset relations between the two neighbours following tensions sparked by the UK's exit from the EU.

Coincidentally, Charles arrives one day after Macron held talks with British opposition leader Keir Starmer, whose Labour Party is increasingly confident of being able to oust the ruling Conservatives from power.

King Charles Sets 1st Overseas Trip Since Cancer Battle in Honor of D-Day

King Charles III has booked his first overseas engagement since undergoing cancer treatment.

Buckingham Palace revealed in a Friday, May 17, statement that Charles, 75, and wife Queen Camilla will travel to France in June with other members of the royal family to mark the 80th anniversary of the D-Day Landings.

After visiting monuments in Portsmouth, England, the couple will journey to Ver-sur-Mer in Normandy, France. On Thursday, June 6, Charles and Camilla will attend The Ministry of Defense and the Royal British Legion's commemorative event at the British Normandy Memorial. (His Majesty is the patron of the Royal British Legion.)

Charles' eldest son, Prince William , and the king's sister, Princess Anne , will join them in Normandy for additional engagements.

Charles recently resumed his public-facing duties in April after a brief hiatus to undergo cancer treatment. The palace confirmed in February that Charles had been diagnosed with an undisclosed form of cancer .

"I would like to express my most heartfelt thanks for the many messages of support and good wishes I have received in recent days," he said in a statement later that month. "As all those who have been affected by cancer will know, such kind thoughts are the greatest comfort and encouragement."

Charles continued, "It is equally heartening to hear how sharing my own diagnosis has helped promote public understanding and shine a light on the work of all those organizations [that] support cancer patients and their families across the U.K. and wider world. My lifelong admiration for their tireless care and dedication is all the greater as a result of my own personal experience."

As Charles took a break from his public-facing duties, William, 41, Camilla and brother Prince Edward carried on in his place.

By April, Charles received an encouraging prognosis from his doctors.

Kate Middleton and More Royals Who Were Diagnosed With Cancer

"His Majesty's medical team are very encouraged by the progress made so far and remain positive about the King's continued recovery," Buckingham Palace said in a statement last month . "Forthcoming engagements will be adapted where necessary to minimize any risks to His Majesty's continued recovery. The pacing of the King's program will be carefully calibrated as his recovery continues, in close consultation with his medical team."

Charles is not the only member of the royal family battling cancer. William's wife, Princess Kate Middleton , confirmed in March that she had been diagnosed with an undisclosed form of cancer two months prior. The Princess of Wales, 42, has also taken a reprieve from her public duties as she undergoes a preventative course of chemotherapy.

King Charles Announces His First Overseas Trip Since Cancer Diagnosis

The monarch is finding a way to return to normalcy as he continues cancer treatments.

 King Charles III attends the Sunday service at the Church of St Mary Magdalene on the Sandringham estate on January 7, 2024 in Sandringham, England.

King Charles is preparing to take his first overseas trip since revealing he has been diagnosed with and is currently undergoing treatment for an unspecified type of cancer.

On Friday, May 17, Buckingham Palace confirmed the monarch will travel to Normandy, France, on June 6 to commemorate the 80th anniversary of D-Day, the Independent reports .

The monarch will visit the British Normandy Memorial alongside his wife, Queen Camilla, where the event will be led by the Ministry of Defense and the Royal British Legion.

The announcement comes after Queen Camilla provided an update on the monarch's health and something of a warning to her husband, telling guests at a recent garden party at Lamb House that King Charles "would" be "getting better" if "he behaved himself."

As the Independent noted, the Queen has said to have previously told her husband he needed "to slow down a bit" after he was initially diagnosed with an enlarged prostate.

The King returned to public-facing duties on April 30, which included  a visit to a cancer treatment center to meet with medical specialists and patients .

Prior to his first big step toward a more normal public schedule, the  Palace released an update on the King's health , writing in a statement that the monarch's "treatment program will continue" and that "doctors are sufficiently pleased with the progress made so far."

“Forthcoming engagements will be adapted where necessary to minimize any risks to His Majesty’s continued recovery," the Palace's statement continued, in addition to confirming that the King was “greatly encouraged” to be resuming some public-facing duties and “very grateful” to his medical team for their “continued care and expertise.”

King Charles is a notorious "workaholic," according to numerous family members and royal insiders. Following his cancer diagnosis,  Peter Phillips —the King's nephew—told  Sky News Australia 's  The   Royal Report  that his uncle is "frustrated that he can't get on and do everything that he wants to be able to do."

“He is always pushing his staff and everybody and his doctors and nurses to be able to say: 'Actually, can I do this? Can I do that?'" Phillips explained at the time. “So the overriding message would be that he's obviously very keen to get back to a form of normality."

Prince William to Step in for King Charles at Special D-Day Commemorations in France

The Prince of Wales will be in Normandy, France, with other heads of state, while Charles and Queen Camilla are at a separate event

Prince William is stepping up as an international statesman.

The Prince of Wales will represent his father King Charles at a key D-Day commemoration in Normandy, north-east France next week.

William, 41, is set to be the senior U.K. figure at a gathering of 25 world leaders at Omaha beach, Saint Laurent sur Mer, on the 80th anniversary of the landings on June 6. The ceremony will honor the estimated 160,000 American, British and Canadian troops who landed at the beach on D-Day.

The battles on D-Day of June 6, 1944, and in the weeks that followed, pushed the German forces back from the coast and across France and were among the most important in bringing about the end of the Second World War, which ended almost a year later.

As well as being alongside international heads of state, William will join D-Day veterans and attend the the Canadian commemorative ceremony at the Juno Beach Centre, Courseulles-sur-Mer, hosted by the Canadian government, Buckingham Palace has announced .

William expected to travel to France solo, as his wife Kate Middleton , 42, is still not undertaking public duties as she undergoes her  cancer treatment .

Charles, 75, and Queen Camilla, 76, will be in Normandy for the celebrations but will be at a separate event marking the British memorial.

President  Joe Biden will also be in France, while French President  Emmanuel Macron confirmed that Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelenskyy  would also be taking part in the commemorations , the Associated Press reported.

The event is the latest step for William in his burgeoning international role. As heir to the throne, he has to navigate the difficult terrain of appealing to politicians and decision-makers while not overstepping the mark and becoming party-political on the world stage.

In the past, he has urged President Xi Jinping in China to join the ban on the illegal trade in endangered wildlife and deftly taken part in  diplomatic visits to Israel and Pakistan .

"In his early 20s, I always had to pinch myself to remind me that he was still a very young man. He already had an extraordinary maturity," Charlie Mayhew, CEO of the  Tusk Trust charity previously told PEOPLE . "That, I suppose, comes with a knowledge of his destiny. He has developed into a really valuable statesman for this country and for conservation and the environment."

The events in France are among a set of special occasions to mark the bravery and sacrifices of those who took part in the historic landings. Other members of the Royal Family will take part in celebrations in the U.K. too.

It is part of a busy period of public outings for the King and his family. The following week will see the annual birthday parade or Trooping the Colour , followed by the Order of the Garter ceremony and Royal Ascot horse races, which start on June 20.

King Charles Will Travel to France and Germany for First State Visits

Britain’s new monarch and his wife, Camilla, the queen consort, will attend state banquets in Paris and Berlin later this month.

LONDON — King Charles III and Camilla, the queen consort, will travel to France and Germany this month, making their first state visits since Charles ascended to the throne in September, Buckingham Palace said on Friday.

“The visit will celebrate Britain’s relationship with France and Germany, marking our shared histories, culture and values,” said a statement from the palace. “It will also provide an opportunity to look forwards and demonstrate the many ways the U.K. is working in partnership with France and Germany, whether that be to tackle climate change; respond to the conflict in Ukraine; seize trade and investment opportunities or share the best of our arts and culture.”

In choosing France and Germany, the two largest economies of the European Union, for his first official visits, King Charles is signaling Britain’s intention to strengthen ties after Brexit negotiations sowed divisions .

For the French portion of the trip, which begins March 26, the royal couple will join President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte, in Paris for a ceremony of remembrance and wreath laying at the Arc de Triomphe. The king and queen consort will also attend a state banquet in their honor at the Palace of Versailles.

In addition, Queen Camilla and Mrs. Macron will open the new Édouard Manet and Edgar Degas exhibition at the Musée d’Orsay . From Paris, Charles and Camilla will travel to Bordeaux, where they will see the devastation caused by last summer’s wildfires. They will also tour an organic vineyard known for its sustainable approach to winemaking.

King Charles and Queen Camilla will then travel to Germany for a three-day visit to Berlin and Hamburg. They will attend a state banquet, hosted by President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and his wife, Elke Büdenbender, at Bellevue Palace,   the   presidential residence in Berlin. King Charles will address the Bundestag, the German parliament, and he will meet refugees who have recently arrived from Ukraine. Camilla and Mrs. Büdenbender will visit the Komische Oper in Berlin, to hear about the opera company’s outreach projects.

Britain’s constitutional monarch traditionally conducts meetings with other heads of state to build relations, but stays out of politics. King Charles was criticized this week when he met the European Commission president, Ursula von der Leyen, for tea at Windsor Castle, minutes after she and Prime Minister Rishi Sunak presented a landmark agreement to end a dispute over post-Brexit trade rules for Northern Ireland.

King Charles Becomes the Patron of His “Tough” Scottish Boarding School

Image may contain Person Walking Clothing Coat Formal Wear Suit Architecture Building Wall Adult and Jacket

This week, King Charles III accepted a surprising new honor that harkens back to his secondary school days. On the occasion of the anniversary of his coronation, the BBC reports that the king will now be the new patron of the Gordonstoun Association, the organization that runs the small boarding school in north-east Scotland where the king was a student from 1962 to 1967.

The school’s principal Lisa Kerr praised the king in a statement . “As our most prominent former student, His Majesty exemplifies so many of the qualities we seek to instill in our students, notably a lifelong commitment to service,” she said. “That His Majesty has chosen a patronage of our alumni body is a great honor both for the school and all members of the Gordonstoun Association.”

king charles first international trip

The patronage is the king’s first official link to the school since his graduation. For the last few years, Charles’s sister Princess Anne has been the family’s primary liaison with the remote Scottish boarding school, serving as the patron for the Campaign for Gordonstoun, a fundraising drive. Anne was not a student there herself as it did not admit girls, but her children Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall attended in the 1990s.

The royal association with the school in Moray stretches back to its 1934 founding, when Prince Philip became one of its earliest students, and Philip previously served as its patron. Though Gordonstoun says it is “immensely proud to be the first senior school to educate a king” on its website, the king wasn’t its most enthusiastic student. Charles was more interested in music and drama than outdoorsmanship, and in his letters home, he complained about his classmates. “The people in my dormitory are foul,” he wrote in a letter home, according to biographer Christopher Andersen . “Goodness, they are horrid. I don’t see how anybody could be so foul.”

By the time the king reached his late 20s, his opinion about the school had started to soften. “It was only tough in the sense that it demanded more of you as an individual than most other schools did—mentally or physically,” he said in a 1975 speech to the House of Lords. “I am lucky in that I believe it taught me a great deal about myself and my own abilities and disabilities. It taught me to accept challenges and take the initiative.”

The King and Queen are planning to travel to Australia in late October

  • The anti-monarchy group Republic will protest against the Royal Family overseas
  • Graham Smith, CEO of the group, outlined Republic's plan to protest in Australia on GB News’ royal podcast
  • New episodes of The Royal Record are released every Thursday

Protestors are set to target King Charles and Queen Camilla’s next international tour.

The head of the anti-monarchy group Republic said its members plan to demonstrate overseas as Charles and Camilla tour Australia, during the second episode of GB News’ new podcast The Royal Record.

The monarch is planning to travel Down Under in late October and early November as he continues his cancer treatment.

Speaking to GB News’ Royal Correspondent Cameron Walker and Royal Editor of GB News.com Svar Nanan-Sen on the podcast, Graham Smith described why he is planning to travel abroad to protest.

Protestors will travel to Australia to demonstrate against the Royal Family during the King's trip Down Under

Smith said: “Everything I have read so far is that they intend to go to Australia as planned in October.

“My intention is to go over there as well, we’ve got members and supporters over there and of course, there is an Australian republican movement that we want to talk to.”

Smith explained that the “purpose” of the long-haul trip “won’t be to campaign for an Australian republic, but to campaign for a British [one].”

He continued: “We’re going to be constantly turning up where they’re turning up and saying ‘You’re not for us, you’re not my King’.”

The anti-monarchy group Republic protesting regularly at royal events

The Republic group protest at many events and engagements that the Royal Family attend demanding an elected head of state rather than a constitutional monarchy.

On June 15, the group are planning to protest at the King’s Birthday Parade, Trooping the Colour, at The Mall in London.

The royal voyage to Australia has been scheduled around the Commonwealth heads of government meeting in Samoa which begins on October 21, 2024.

In April, a source told The Sun that the King was “supercharging” his plans for the two-week trip where he would also visit New Zealand and Samoa.

LATEST ROYAL NEWS:

  • Kate and William to make major decision on George, Charlotte and Louis
  • Beatrice and Eugenie may not want full-time royal roles
  • Kate cancer speculation is 'unhealthy' as royal receives treatment

The source said: “The King is raring to go after a significant amount of time off due to his cancer diagnosis.

“He's over the moon with the way treatment has gone and supercharging plans for Australia, New Zealand and Samoa.”

The last time a ruling monarch visited Australia was in October 2011 when the late Queen Elizabeth II went to the country.

Charles last visited the country in 2018 when he was the Prince of Wales with Camilla; the monarch has travelled to the country 15 times on working trips and studied for six months at the Timbertop, Geelong Grammar School in Victoria.

"Investor expectations are high, particularly for growth and tech companies. So companies who are missing earnings or issuing lackluster forward guidance are being punished ," said Dylan Kremer, chief investment officer at Certuity.

King’s Birthday Honours 2024: What’s open, what’s not and when you have to pay a surcharge

Share this article

King Charles III gets two birthday celebrations now he is on the throne. Photo / Getty Images

For more than 70 years, the first Monday of June was known as Queen’s Birthday. This year, New Zealand will be celebrating the King’s Birthday on Monday, June 3 .

Although the day goes by a different name, the rules are much the same. Just like the Queen’s Birthday, the public holiday is a non-working day.

That means if you’re working on the day (as regularly rostered), you’re entitled to time-and-a-half pay and an alternative day off.

What’s open?

Trading restrictions don’t apply to King’s Birthday in the way they would for Easter holidays , Christmas or the first half of Anzac Day.

Shops, restaurants, cafes and other hospitality and retail venues will be open as usual, but they can choose to close if they wish - so it pays to check opening hours beforehand.

Supermarkets and malls will be open too, but some may operate with shorter hours.

Public holidays are an expensive day to be a business and King’s Birthday is no different.

Hospitality businesses in particular may add a 15 per cent surcharge to their services - this is usually to cover the costs of paying employees time-and-a-half.

If a business does charge a surcharge, they must have clear signage communicating this to the customer.

This can be done with the display of signs detailing the surcharge, a message on the business’s website, or by verbally letting the customer know at the time of purchase or before they order.

If customers believe they have been misled about a surcharge, they can complain to the Commerce Commission.

Why do we celebrate the King’s Birthday in June?

Although King Charles III’s birthday falls later in the year, New Zealand still marks the monarch’s birthday in June.

King Charles will officially celebrate his 76th birthday on November 14, but now that he has taken the throne, he receives the privilege of celebrating his birthday twice every year.

It was the same with Queen Elizabeth II , whose real birthday was on April 21.

The reason? Britain’s winter weather.

It’s traditional for British monarchs who are not born in summer to celebrate twice, with a second official birthday. Once on their actual date of birth, and then later in the British summer with a grand parade.

The tradition was started by George II in 1748, who also had a November birthday and deemed the month too cold for a celebratory parade.
