The date of Throne Day moves with each new monarch since they each generally ascend the throne on a different date. For example, the previous king, Hassan II, had his Throne Day on 3 March; and his predecessor, Mohammed V, had Throne Day on 18 November.

However, the date of Mohammed VI becoming king is not exactly the same as his enthronement date. He was king when his father died on 23 July, 1999, but 30 July of that same year was the date of his enthronement ceremony.

On Throne Day, there are many official and popular celebrations throughout the country. It is a day of pride in the nation’s independence, culture, and monarchy.
