Since the queen’s passing, King Charles has had to take on many important new roles as the official successor to the British throne. And now, the monarch will be stepping into another role that has been available for almost two years.
According to People, King Charles confirmed last week that he will take on the role of the Captain General of the Royal Marines. The huge announcement came on the 358th birthday of the Corps of Royal Marines, which was founded in the year 1664 during the reign of King Charles II.
Fun Fact: The Captain General position was previously held by his son, Prince Harry. However, the role has not been filled since 2020, when the Duke of Sussex stepped back from being a senior member of the royal family.
