King Charles III Becomes ‘Chief Life Governor’ of Corps Security

Listen to this article

His Majesty King Charles III has assumed the role of ‘Chief Life Governor’ at Corps Security following a review of more than 1,000 royal patronages by the Royal Household.

The patronage continues a tradition that began in 1901 when King Edward VII consented to head Corps’ list of governors. He was to be followed by Kings George V, Edward VIII, George VI, and her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The Corps of Commissionaires has been helping veterans in need since 1859 and this still holds true to this day.

Exemplifying the relationship between the Royal Family and the dedicated security services offered by Corps Security for over 165 years, the news was received by the organisation on the first anniversary of His Majesty’s coronation.

Corps Security President Lieutenant General Sir Robert Fulton KBE, KStJ and the Chair of the Board of Directors, Air Marshal Christopher Nickols, CB CBE DL, said in a joint statement: “We are delighted to announce that His Majesty King Charles III has accepted the Patronage of The Corps of Commissionaires, as our Chief Life Governor.”
