Interestingly, the real birthday of King Charles III is 14 November, but a June holiday is a longstanding tradition in many British overseas territories and Commonwealth countries.

On the Sovereign’s Birthday, the governor of BVI ceremonially inspects the parading units, be they military, police, or civilian. And awards are given out to various “deserving individuals”.

As this holiday is always celebrated on a Saturday, it has little impact on the lives of most BVI residents compared to other holidays that fall on week days.
