The Coronation

Saturday 6th May 2023

In honour of the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III and Her Majesty Queen Camilla, we are delighted to share a look back through the College archive at royal events of the past.

The College has been privileged to welcome several members of the royal family on official visits to the College and town, including Their Majesties King George VI and Queen Elizabeth in 1948 who visited as part of the College’s Centenary celebrations, and the current King, then Prince of Wales, in 2004 on the occasion of the 800th anniversary of the granting of the town’s Royal Charter. On this visit, Charles unveiled the large commemorative sarsen stone in the Wilderness, on the site where Marlborough’s Royal Castle once stood.
