Oath

High Constables bear a natural allegiance to their Sovereign. They had a quasi-judicial office and in bygone centuries were charged with maintaining law and order in the locality. As such a High Constable is required to swear an Oath of Allegiance.

The Oath which is sworn in front of the provost of Perth and Kinross Council, is as follows;

"I do Swear that I will be Faithful and Bear true Allegiance to His Majesty King Charles III, His Heirs and Successors according to Law. And I further Swear that I will well and truly Serve our Sovereign in the Office of High Constable of the City of Perth and will Loyally and Faithfully perform the duties of that Office and will do Right to all Manner of People after the Laws and Usages of this Realm, without Fear or Favour, Affection or Ill-will. So help me GOD."
