Belize / King Charles III

Belize - King Charles III (8 September 2022 - )

The monarchy of Belize (the Belizean monarchy) is a system of government in which a hereditary monarch - shared with several other commonwealth countries - is the sovereign of Belize. Most of the monarch's powers in Belize are exercised by the Governor-General.

King Charles III acceded to the throne on 8 September 2022 upon the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, becoming the Head of State of a number of realms of the Crown, including Belize.

In Belize King Charles III is styled: "His Majesty Charles the Third, by the Grace of God, King of Belize and of His other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth" (thus omitting the "Defender of the Faith" title used in the United Kingdom and some other realms).

The Belizean monarch, besides reigning in Belize, separately serves as monarch for a number of other Commonwealth countries known as Commonwealth realms. This developed from the former colonial relationship of these countries to Great Britain, but they are now independent of each other and are legally distinct.
