Accession Proclamation – full text

In the past, the circulation of the Proclamation was the means by which communities learnt that they had a new Monarch. In this day and age though, with technology enabling news to travel round the world in an instant, it is no longer the means to convey such momentous change. It does, however, remain one of the first occasions when communities have the opportunity to reflect on a moment in our nation’s history when the reign of our longest-serving monarch ended and our new King succeeded.
