Charles III, Current Events Part 1: September 2022-


If you have answers, please help by responding to the unanswered posts.
These were pretty high awards, so it makes sense for the king himself to award it. The archbishop received the grand cross of the Royal Victorian Order and the Dean of Westminster Abbey was made knight commander of the same order. I wonder whether this is in relation to last year's coronation.
 
Yes I was also thinking that it may have connected to the Coronation!
 
Geoffrey Fisher and Cosmo Lang also received the GCVO after the coronations that they performed.
 
Today's recipients (based on the pictures):

Royal Victorian Order
Knight Grand Cross: The Most Reverend and Right Honourable Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury
Knight Commander: Very Reverend Dr David Hoyle, Dean of Westminster Abbey

The Royal Victorian Order was indeed awarded for services on the occasion of the Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla.

Order of British Empire
Dame Grand Cross: Labour MP Dame Margaret Beckett (for services parliamentary, political and public service)
Dame Commander: Dame Jilly Cooper (for services to literature and to charity)
Member: Dr. Sanjay Bhandari, Kick It Out (for services to sport)

I hope the King will be able to receive the Emperor of Japan on State Visit. He looked so tired at Ascot.

Posts about Sir Keir Starmer as new Prime Minister have been moved to a new thread, which you can find here:

 
The king met with actor Idris Elba at Clarence House , they later travelled onto St James's Palace.
 
The PM joins the conversation the King is having at a reception today following a discussion on youth opportunity with the King’s Trust

I couldn't help noticing the PM felt the need to put a hand on His Majesty's back after shaking hands. Not necessary, IMO. I am sure we all remember the "Lizard of Oz" moniker! New in his role, I am sure the PM will eventually learn the basic rules.
