King Charles III has been named Corps Security‘s Royal Patron.

His Majesty’s appointment began in May 2024, following a review of more than 1,000 Royal Patronages by the Royal Household following The King’s Accession in September 2022.

Honoured to have the Monarch’s support

“The Corps of Commissionaires has been helping veterans in need since 1859 and this still holds true to this day,” said Mike Bullock, CEO at Corps Security.

“We are honoured that the Monarch has chosen to continue to support our organisation, first established with His Majesty King Edward VII in 1901.”

King Charles’ patronage continues a long line of tradition that started in 1901, when King Edward VII consented to head Corps’ list of governors followed by George V, Edward VIII, George VI and her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the longest serving patron from 1952 until 2022.

His Majesty has chosen to become the Royal Patron of The Corps of Commissionaires as the Chief Life Governor.

His selection of Corps exemplifies the enduring relationship between the Royal Family and the dedicated security services offered by Corps Security for over 165 years.

The news was received by the organisation on the first anniversary of His Majesty’s coronation.

Chief Life Governor

“We are delighted to announce that His Majesty King Charles III has accepted the Patronage of The Corps of Commissionaires, as our Chief Life Governor,” said Corps Security President Lieutenant General Sir Robert Fulton KBE, KStJ and the Chair of the Board of Directors, Air Marshal Christopher Nickols, CB CBE DL, in a joint statement.
