Visit to Jersey of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla

On Monday 15 July 2024 the island will host a visit of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla.

Earlier this morning The Deputy Bailiff of Jersey, Robert MacRae, read the following statement to Members of the States Assembly:

“I am delighted to announce that on Monday 15 July the island will host the first visit of the Sovereign since 2005.  His Majesty King Charles III and Queen Camilla will travel to Jersey on the morning of Monday 15 July before visiting Guernsey on Tuesday 16 July. Their visit will include a special sitting of the States Assembly and the Royal Court and I very much look forward to this and the rest of the programme that has been planned for the visit.”

His Excellency The Lieutenant-Governor of Jersey, Vice Admiral Jerry Kyd CBE, said “I am absolutely delighted that we have been able to share the fantastic news that Their Majesties will be making their first visit to the island since The King’s accession to the throne.  Their visit is a reflection of the ancient and very personal relationship which has existed between Jersey, as one of the Crown’s oldest possessions, and the Monarch which stretches back 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. The binding benefits of this special relationship remain as strong as ever and I know Their Majesties are looking forward greatly to their visit next month.”

The focus of the visit of Their Majesties will be in St Helier and will include a Special Sitting of the States Assembly and the Royal Court followed by a large-scale open air expo which will showcase the best of Jersey in one area. Once the visit has concluded this area will be opened to the public.

Details of the full programme, including highlighting areas the public will be able to see Their Majesties, will be shared in due course.
