The Middlesex Federation

When we talk of Middlesex where do we mean?
The County, the Province or the Tribal Lands?
It’s possible you didn’t even realise there is a choice!

It is Middlesex Day in...

Bring back Middlesex and appoint a Lord lieutenant

In our campaign to retain and re-establish the rights and recognition of Middlesex, we have written to the King Charles III, to ask that he bring back the 1,300-year-old county name.

The group, Middlesex Heritage, has written to the King to request appointment of a lord lieutenant to represent it, and recognise the county he was born and crowned in.

Middlesex Day, the 16th of May, was marked by flags flying from Number 10 Downing Street to the Lord’s cricket ground, the Supreme Court and Harrow School, along with the numerous personal and small businesses marking the day.

Russell Grant, the TV astrologist and founder of the Association of British Counties, and the Lord of Ashford, said: “Middlesex Day recognises that Middlesex has a heritage and identity that continues to be the roots of many born, bred or living in it.”

The day, May 16, was chosen to recognise the achievements of the 57th West Middlesex Regiment of Foot, at the 1811 Battle of Albuhera during the Napoleonic Wars as a mark of respect to those that stood, and first used the cry “Die Hard!”
It is the hope of Middlesex Heritage  that King Charles will recognise and appoint a Lord lieutenant.
We will keep you updated.
