King Charles III – Planned Local Proclamation

Following the death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, several Proclamation Days will take place throughout the United Kingdom.

The reading of the Proclamation does not appoint a new King, it is an announcement of the accession which took place immediately upon the death of the reigning monarch.

The first Proclamation will be read in London at 11:00am on Saturday, 10th September. At 2:30pm on Sunday, 11th September, the Mayor of Chichester, Councillor Julian Joy, will read the final local Proclamation outside the Council House in North Street and you are very welcome to come along to see this historic event take place.

During the Proclamation readings nationwide from Saturday morning, 10th September, the Union Flag is returned to the full mast. The Union flag at the Council House will be lowered to half-mast at the conclusion of the Mayor’s reading on Sunday and will remain half masted until the morning after the State Funeral.
