King Charles III becomes the new Captain General of the Royal Marines

As the Royal Marines celebrate their 358th birthday King Charles III has become their new Captain General.

Founded in 1664 during the reign of King Charles II, the corps are widely acknowledged as one of the world’s elite fighting forces.

His Majesty trained and served alongside the Royal Marines during his Naval career.

In a personal message to the Royal Marines, The King said:“It is the greatest possible pleasure to assume the role of your Captain General.

I am exceptionally proud to follow in the footsteps of so many members of my family over the last three and a half centuries, all of whom held the role with a deep sense of admiration.

“The Royal Marines have a distinguished and unparalleled history, both on land and at sea. I draw immense inspiration from your courage, determination, self-discipline and a remarkable capacity to endure in the most extreme environments.“

I feel greatly honoured to become part of the Corps Family and very much look forward to meeting many of you in the near future. In the meantime, this comes with my heartfelt and special wishes for a very happy 358th birthday.

“Per Mare, Per Terram.”
