Britain is an old country where an old King rests against an old tree in an old park


The King : Charles III : age 74 years

The occasion : To mark, on 11th November, his appointment as 'Ranger of the Park', seventy years after his late father, the Duke of Edinburgh, was appointed to the post.

The tree : An ancient oak : age 800-1000 years 

The Park : Windsor Great Park : age 900 years. 
Created around Windsor Castle by the new king, William I, 'The Conqueror', who by brute force and slaughter had invaded, killed the resident King, Harold, subjugated Anglo-Saxon England and made the Park as a reserve for the Norman King for personal hunting and also to supply the castle with wood, deer, boar and fish.
