King Charles III- No Passport, No Driving License, All Swans & Two Birthdays






King Charles III – the new ruler of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth realms following the death his mother, Queen Elizabeth II – will have some unusual rights, which include travelling without a passport, driving without a licence and owning all the mute swans in England.

No Need Of Passport & Driving License

The British passport has, historically, been issued in the name of the monarch in charge, which in this case is King Charles himself.

The Preamble of every british passport states “His Britannic Majesty’s Secretary of State requests and requires in the name of His Majesty all those whom it may concern to allow the bearer to pass freely without let or hindrance and to afford the bearer such assistance and protection as may be necessary,” King Charles III hardly needs his own. The extension of the same applies to having a driving license

All the swans

Since the 12th century, unmarked mute swans in waters across England and Wales are considered the property of the monarch.

Two birthdays

Charles’ mother Queen Elizabeth II had two birthdays – her actual birthday on April 21 and an official public celebration on the second Tuesday in June.

Charles’ birthday is on November 14 – during the winter months – and so he too is likely to have an ‘official birthday’ – a warmer month that is considered better for public celebration.
