We are extremely proud and honoured that His Majesty King Charles III has been confirmed as our new patron.

The charity has held Royal patronage since it was founded in 1921 and The King will be the fourth monarch to serve as patron of the Royal British Legion Scotland following his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, and George VI and Edward VIII before her.

The King has his own record of service with the British Military and comes from a family who have all served, leading to a close affinity with the Armed Forces community and the aims of the RBLS.

King Charles first joined the Armed Forces in 1971 to complete an advanced flying course with the RAF before joining the Navy. He subsequently served in a number of ranks and holds honorary titles across the Royal Navy, Army, and RAF. Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, King Charles became Commander in Chief of the British Armed Forces.

The Royal British Legion Scotland is incredibly thankful for The King’s ongoing support as our new Patron.
