King Charles III is keeping on with royal traditions.

In a ceremony today, he has officially accepted the title of Commissioner-in-Chief for the RCMP.

It’s in recognition of the RCMP’s 150th anniversary and the upcoming Coronation, a title previously held by Queen Elizabeth II.

In the role, King Charles will recognize the importance of the RCMP at home and abroad by highlighting the rich history between them and the monarchy, which dates back to the genesis of the RCMP during the reign of Queen Victoria.

He was presented with a special commemorative RCMP officer’s sword as well a new horse, Noble, to be added to his other eight Musical Riders. Three of the eight are currently in use as charger horses for the Royal Family: George, Sir John and Darby.

Participating in the ceremony today were Musical Ride members that are in the UK for His Majesty’s coronation procession. Three of these members and the three previously-gifted charger horses, as well as Noble, will participate in the coronation procession on May 6.
