King Charles’ coronation date has been confirmed

King Charles’ coronation will take place on May 6th at Westminster Abbey in London.

At the ceremony, the King will be crowned Queen Consort alongside his wife Camilla, and the historic service will be presided over by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.

Buckingham Palace said in a statement: “The coronation will reflect the role of the monarch today and look to the future, while being rooted in long-held traditions.”

Charles is ordained as sovereign during the ceremony, and Camilla is also crowned as part of the service, albeit in a simpler ceremony.

It has not yet been confirmed whether the date, which falls on a Saturday, will be a UK bank holiday.

The king became monarch when Queen Elizabeth died on September 8 at the age of 96. But in recent weeks there has been much speculation that the coronation will be more modest than before.

The late Queen was crowned in June 1953 in a three-hour ceremony as thousands of people poured through the streets of London.

This event marks the formal inauguration of royal power by a monarch. But recently it has been suggested that Charles’ coronation could last around an hour.

The service has been held in Westminster Abbey for 900 years. However, it is not yet known who will attend the ceremony.

Earlier this month, a source revealed Charles intends to have a more “modern” coronation.

The insider recently explained: “The 1762 gold stagecoach seen during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee should be seen again. The monarch’s anointing is also retained, but in a shorter ceremony and with fewer details. ,Guests’.
