Mayor of Greater Manchester welcomes accession of King Charles III

Following the proclamation in St Peter’s Square, Manchester, confirming the beginning of His Majesty King Charles III’s reign, Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham said:

“As Greater Manchester continues to mourn the passing of Her Late Majesty Elizabeth II, and celebrate the life of our longest-serving monarch, we must also embrace the start of a new era for our country.

“Today’s Proclamation Ceremony in St Peter’s Square formally signals that new beginning and we are ready now to build on the strong bonds of friendship we have formed with our new King over the years.

“He is no stranger to this city-region and, in recent years, we have been proud to work in close partnership with him and the Prince’s Trust as it has expanded its work with young people across our boroughs.

“So today, on behalf of the whole of Greater Manchester, I am pleased and honoured to welcome the accession to the throne of His Majesty King Charles III.”
