When Queen Elizabeth II passed away at the age of 96 last September, her oldest son King Charles (formerly known as prince) took his mother’s place and ascended to the throne. And now, it appears that the monarch will be taking on another role that was previously held by his late mother.
Today, King Charles has been named the new Colonel-in-Chief of the Corps of Royal Engineers. This title used to be held by the late queen.
In honor of this new role, His Majesty will personally meet with representatives from the Corps of Royal Engineers during his state visit to Germany. In addition, he will have a chance to witness a demonstration of a wide river pontoon bridged by the 23 Amphibious Engineer Squadron.
