The King’s official ascension ceremony was on Saturday, following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, on Thursday September 8.

The Times found this shot from the Howick and Pakuranga Times, April 6, 1981, of the then Prince of Wales.

He took up the offer from Shawn Collier of Bucklands Beach Intermediate to take a ride on his BMX bicycle during a visit to Lloyd Elsmore Park.

Nearly 7000 schoolchildren put on all kinds of displays for the royal visit.
