A Message from The Honourable Anita R. Neville, Lieutenant Governor of Manitoba

On behalf of all Manitobans, it is my honour and privilege to extend congratulations to His Royal Highness King Charles III and Queen Camilla, on this Coronation day – a historical milestone for the British monarchy, the Commonwealth and, indeed, world history.

This monumental day ushers in a new era of leadership as His Majesty formally assumes his considerable royal responsibilities and the commitment to service that was so capably and wonderfully demonstrated throughout the remarkable reign of his mother, Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

While King Charles III automatically became King of Canada upon the passing of his beloved Mother, holding all legal, constitutional and symbolic authorities as Canada’s Head of State, the Coronation provides a celebratory occasion to mark the new reign and focus on the opportunities ahead.

As the heir to the throne, His Majesty has already experienced extraordinary mentorship and training for his new role. With the support of Queen Camilla, he is bound to establish his own unique legacy through his service ethic, intelligence, compassion and ongoing dedication to important topics in the fields of art, technology, architecture and environmentalism.

Earlier this week King Charles met with First Nations, Inuit and Metis representatives together. This is the first time a British monarch has done so.  I share in the spirit of optimism that surrounds this new chapter in the relationship between the Crown and Indigenous peoples.

I hope all Manitobans will join me in recognizing and reflecting on the significance of this ceremonial day and join me in extending hearty congratulations and loyalty to His Royal Highness King Charles III.
