King Charles III and Queen Camilla will visit York Minster for the Royal Maundy service in April.

It will be the first time the service will be held during the new King’s reign. During the service, 74 men and 74 women – the number reflects King Charles’s age – will receive the Maundy.

The Dean of York, the Very Revd Dominic Barrington, said: “We are honoured that His Majesty has chosen York Minster to be his cathedral church for the first Maundy Service of his reign. Taking place in Holy Week, this historic service symbolises, humility, care, kindness and appreciation of others. The King’s Maundy gift will be a moment of celebration and thanksgiving for 148 exceptional people who have made an impact in their communities.”
