Design an armour for the King

Would your child like to design an armour for King Charles III?

The Royal Armouries have launched a competition for all primary and secondary school children to celebrate the coronation.

Children have until 2nd July to get creative and design a new armour for the King, with three age categories and VIP tickets to our Jousting Tournament in August as a prize for each category. The overall winner will be put forward to be made into a suit of armour for His Majesty.


Children can take inspiration on how to decorate the armour from the history of King Charles' life, his personal passions, or the armour of previous Kings throughout history.

For inspiration and more information, please visit our website.

To enter schools can email their submissions to or send them to:
