Northampton Town Council unveil the recently commissioned Royal Mural, in Northampton's Cultural Quarter
The mural was designed to both commemorate the reign of Queen Elizabeth II and look ahead to the future reign of His Majesty the King, Charles III. The project was generously funded by Northampton Town Councillor, Cllr. Nazim Choudary, through our Councillor Community Fund.
Artists, Liam Freeman and Mez White of Spraycatz, took part in the recent Town Council sponsored project, Wallgames, over the August Bank Holiday weekend of this year.
The mural combines the portraits of Queen Elizabeth II and His Majesty Charles III, whilst the background consists of an artistic depiction of the dates 1952-2022, to mark the historic transition from the seventy-year reign of Queen Elizabeth II to the future reign of His Majesty The King Charles III.
Councillor Jane Birch said, 'It was with great sadness that we heard of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II shortly after all the celebrations of her Platinum Jubilee. The accession of King Charles III starts a new chapter of our monarchy and the Town Council thought it fitting to mark such an historical occasion with a visual tribute, in the form of this mural, to our past and future monarchs.'
The county's representative of the King, Lord Lieutenant Mr James Saunders Watson Esq said of the project, "I am delighted that the Town Council have commissioned this mural to the passing of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the accession of King Charles III."
