RICS writes:

King Charles III upholds the tradition of patronage for our Institution by the reigning monarch, succeeding Queen Elizabeth II who was RICS’ patron for over six decades. This advocacy demonstrates a long association between RICS and the Royal Household under its Royal Charter. CEO Justin Young commented: ‘It is a great honour for the Institution and all our members that His Majesty has become our patron, underpinning our Royal Charter to work in the public interest to advance knowledge, uphold standards and inspire future professionals.’

RICS President Tina Paillet FRICS added: ‘We welcome His Majesty as our new Royal Patron. This news affirms the important role played by RICS members in providing trusted advice, backed by high standards, serving the common good.
