The exact date of the King’s Birthday varies somewhat from country to country, and none of them correspond to the King Charles III’s actual birthday! In Cayman Islands, it is usually observed on the Monday following the second Saturday of June.
Cayman Islands has a big parade in its capital city of George Town for this holiday. Afterwards, there is a “garden reception“ where VIP guests meet and mingle. Then, special awards are given out to various worthies throughout the territory. These are called “birthday honours”.
