The King’s Office is a small government organisation which assists the King in the performance of his constitutional duties. This includes arranging all contact between the King and the other members of the government.
Every year the Office prepares hundreds of visits, receptions, meetings and swearing-in ceremonies for the King. It also processes and archives some 2,500 Acts of Parliament, Orders in Council and Royal Decrees applying to individuals or groups annually. In addition, the Office deals with thousands of letters every year from individuals and organisations addressing questions or requests to the King. These are known as petitions.
