Royal Charter 2021

After 650 years of not being a Chartered Company, the Worshipful Company of Fletchers petitioned for the grant of a Royal Charter in 2020.  The Royal Charter is granted by the Her Majesty the Queen and is an instrument of incorporation which confers independent legal personality on the Fletchers and defines its objectives, constitution and powers to govern its own affairs.

The documents were approved by the City Corporation and then submitted to the Privy Council, who granted final approval to affix the Great Seal on 26 May 2021.  The Charter was presented by the Princess Royal at the Fletchers’650th anniversary banquet at Mansion House on 7 March 2022, the largest ever gathering of Fletchers and their guests.
