Jersey could have a public holiday for Royal Visit

The government is proposing a public holiday to mark King Charles III and Queen Camilla's visit to Jersey.

The Council of Ministers will ask the States Assembly to agree to giving islanders Monday 15 July to celebrate while Their Majesties are in the island.

The suggestion follows a consultation with the Bailiff's Consultative Panel and the Comité des Connétables.

It will be the first visit to the Channel Islands of a reigning monarch since Queen Elizabeth II in May 2005.

Chief Minister Lyndon Farnham says:

"The visit of Their Majesties is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our longstanding and loyal relationship with the Crown, and we are proposing a public holiday to mark this special occasion and to enable as many Islanders as possible to enjoy the day."

Full details of the day will be published in due course.
