I have a website that is divided for the UK, thus I have it as for the UK in its entirety I have it as:

example.org/index.php << parent site

example.org/england/index.php << child pages
example.org/scotland/index.php << child page
example.org/wales/index.php << child page

The child pages have the same content as the parent except the child pages have the word "england" mentioned throughout or "scotland" mentioned throughout or "wales" mentioned throughout.

In the parent site (https://www.example.org/index.php) I have set the canonical as:



<link rel='canonical' href='https://www.example.org/index.php'/>


For the child sites, I have set it as:

For "england":

<link rel='canonical' href='https://www.example.org/england/index.php'/>


For "scotland":

<link rel='canonical' href='https://www.example.org/england/index.php'/>


And for "wales":

<link rel='canonical' href='https://www.example.org/wales/index.php'/>


Do I need to tell Google anything else for my canonical to run successfully?

Yes, you need to implement hreflang to define the region and language. Learn more about it here.

I will also sugest that children for child pages be like

example.org/scotland/index.php << child page
example.org/scotland/wales/index.php << child page

Nothing that important, is just a preference.
