Published: Friday, 9th September 2022
The “Proclamation” is the official announcement of the new monarch.
Initially read at St. James’s Palace followed by the Royal Exchange in the City of London, the Proclamation was read on the following day in cities, boroughs, districts and counties across the country.
As in all areas of the country, the reading of the Proclamation was held here in the London Borough of Hounslow, where the Mayor formally proclaimed the death of the monarch and the accession of King Charles the Third to the throne. The local proclamation took place at Holy Trinity Church on Hounslow High Street on Sunday 11 September.
As part of the National Proclamation of the new monarch, flags were raised to full height from 11am on Saturday 10 September and then be lowered at 1pm on Sunday 11 September, an hour before the local Proclamation event. The flags remain at half mast until the day after the funeral.
