The Royal Society of Medicine extends our warmest congratulations to His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen on the occasion of their Coronation.
The Royal Society of Medicine is immensely proud of its royal heritage, which it can trace back to 1834 when the first Royal Charter was granted by King William IV. The subsequent granting of a Supplemental Charter by King Edward VII was followed in 1912 by the official opening of the Society’s new building on the corner of Wimpole Street and Henrietta Place by Their Majesties King George V and Queen Mary. We are proud to say that we remain at this address.
We are deeply grateful for the continued support of His Majesty The King and other members of the Royal Family. We were particularly honoured to receive His Majesty during events celebrating the Society’s Bicentenary in 2006. This was followed in 2012 with a paper written for the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine: ‘Integrated health and post-modern medicine’. In 2021, His Majesty was kind enough to record a video message to open the Society’s 10-part webinar series on the health emergency of climate change.
Now in our third century, we warmly anticipate the continuation of our longstanding relationship.
On behalf of the Society’s trustees, staff, members and volunteers, we wish Their Majesties all the very best on this historic occasion.
