HM The King, Duke of Lancaster
The Duke of Lancaster
Since 1399, the title Duke of Lancaster has been held by the reigning Sovereign. Revenue from the Duchy of Lancaster forms a vital component of the Sovereign’s income, and is held separately from that of other Crown properties.
His Majesty King Charles III is the current Duke of Lancaster. His Majesty takes a keen interest in the estate and His tenants.
At gatherings of Lancastrians within the County Palatine and worldwide, the toast is: “The King, Duke of Lancaster!”
