This free online safety guide celebrates the coronation of King Charles III by looking back on the new monarch’s life and achievements so far.

Naval officer. Student. Environmental campaigner. Husband and father. King Charles III has juggled several previous roles in his 73 years, but having ascended to a new position last year – that of Britain’s 62nd monarch – His Majesty is about to be formally crowned at a historic event which will make headlines not just in this country, but around the world. Children may be intrigued to see from our commemorative poster some of the notable (and possibly lesser-known) landmarks and successes in the King’s life to date – from his years training as a pilot in the RAF to his work supporting young people to the valuable restoration projects carried out by the architectural charity he founded.
