King Charles III--single figure
Item Number: CE094
"God Bless The Queen… God Save The King!"
6 May 2023 has been declared to be a Public Holiday and the Coronation Day of Britain’s newest monarch and head-of-state, King CharlesⅢ. On that day, Charles will officially become King of the United Kingdom and no less than 14 other Commonwealth countries.
As the eldest son of Her Late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth Ⅱ, he became the longest serving heir apparent and Prince of Wales in the history of the Monarchy. At the age of 73, he also became the oldest person to ever accede to the British throne. The tasks and duties before him are going to be many, wide ranging and increasingly complex. In addition, he is also following in the footsteps of a beloved mother who, as Britain’s monarch and head-of-state, rarely, if ever, put a foot wrong throughout her long and memorable reign.
To celebrate our new King and to remember the long and valued legacy of his mother K&C has designed and produced a small number of individual figures to represent King Charles Ⅲ and Queen Elizabeth II.
King Charles III
The new King enjoys, just as his mother did, a very special relationship with all of Britain’s Armed Forces. As King, he holds honorary rank in all three branches; however, it is the Royal Navy that he is probably closest to. In 1971, he enrolled at the Royal Naval College Dartmouth to learn to become an officer. After completing his training, Charles went onto serve on the guided-missile destroyer HMS Norfolk before moving to additional sea service on the frigates HMS Minerva and Jupiter. During this time, he also qualified as a helicopter pilot operating from the carrier HMS Hermes. By 1976, he was given command of the coastal minehunter HMS Bronington, which, as he has often recounted, was one of the happiest times in his life.
This new K&C figure of King CharlesⅢ shows him in the full dress uniform of an ‘Admiral of The Fleet’… the highest rank in the Royal Navy.
Due to be released in APRIL 2023.
