London, 13 April 2023
A new exhibition about His Majesty King Charles III and his deep connections to Canada opens today at Canada Gallery on Trafalgar Square. This exhibition was developed by the High Commission of Canada in the United Kingdom in partnership with Library and Archives Canada.
The upcoming Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III marks a new chapter in Canada’s history. To celebrate this occasion, the High Commission of Canada in the United Kingdom has developed a new exhibition in partnership with Library and Archives Canada, highlighting His Majesty’s deep relationship with Canada and Canadians throughout his life – from childhood to the present. The exhibition presents the public with a unique opportunity to participate in Coronation celebrations by visiting our dedicated gallery space in the heart of London.
The exhibition consists of 70 items, including never-before-exhibited materials drawn from the extraordinary and diverse collections at Library and Archives Canada and other federal government entities, an audio clip of an interview with Canadian author Margaret Atwood (courtesy of the BBC), and two chattels from the Royal Collection Trust loaned with kind permission of His Majesty The King. The selection illustrates His Majesty’s interests in inspiring and empowering youth, preserving the environment, and advancing reconciliation between the Crown and Indigenous Peoples.
Canada Gallery is open from Monday to Saturday from 11 am to 5:45 pm. The exhibition is accessible to the public until Saturday, 3 June 2023. Details of special free guided tours will be announced shortly on the High Commission’s social media channels – pre-booking will be essential.
