LONDON: Great Britain King Charles celebrated his 74th birthday on Monday, the occasion being marked by the replacement of his late father as The Great Windsor Park Rangera position that goes back more than four centuries.
Charles, who became the oldest monarch in British history when he succeeded his mother to the throne in September, will celebrate his first birthday as king privately, with no public engagement planned.
However, Buckingham Palace announced he had officially taken on his new role as Ranger, a job that dates back to 1559 when Queen Elizabeth I appointed Henry Neville, and released a new photo of Charles next to an old oak tree in the park.
his father Prince Philip held the title from 1952 when his wife became Queen Elizabeth II, succeeding her father George VI in the post.
Queen Victoria is among other members of the Royal Family to have served in the role of overseeing and guiding the Deputy Ranger and his team in the day-to-day running of one of the country’s oldest estates, said the palace.
