King Charles III celebrates his birthday with a new mission
King Charles III of England celebrated his 74th birthday on Monday as the new guardian of Windsor Great Park, which has a history of nearly 400 years.
Charles became the oldest monarch in British history when he succeeded his mother to the throne in September, Reuters reported, marking his first birthday as king with a private event without public attendance.
Buckingham Palace has announced that King Charles III has taken over as guardian of Windsor Great Park, which dates back to 1559, when Queen Elizabeth appointed Henry Neville.
Buckingham Palace posted a photo of Charles leaning against an old oak tree.
Prince Philip, father of King Charles III, had held the title since 1952, when he succeeded his father, George VI, to the throne.
Buckingham Palace reported that Queen Victoria was guarding the park, one of the oldest in the country.
