So I did a bit of research into this. Because most mordern browsers do this by default. You don’t need to add it in. However, it is good practice to do so.

The charset = utf-8 let’s you write in all different languages which may have different characters to our English language. Otherwise, you may witness things such as a box with a question mark in it etc.
