King Charles III’s coronation ceremony is scheduled for June 3, 2023, at Westminster Abbey, UK, according to Bloomberg.
Palace sources told the outlet that they hope the ceremony will take place on that specific day, although it has not yet been made official.
Unlike his mother’s, Charles’s ceremony will be much smaller and more modest than the previous ones.
Although Charles ascended the throne two days after Queen Elizabeth II died at the age of 96, the June ceremony will mark the start of his reign as monarch. Queen consort Camilla Parker-Bowles will also be crowned alongside him.
Charles, who will be 74 when the ceremony arrives, will become the oldest person to be crowned king in British history.
What will the coronation of Carlos III be like?
According to tradition, the incoming monarch will sit on the throne called Edward’s Chair (named for King Charles II in 1661) while holding the Sovereign’s Scepter and Rod, representing his constitutional control of the nation, and the Sovereign’s Orb , which represents the Christian world.
After being anointed with oil, blessed, and consecrated by the leading clergy, Charles will have the crown of St. Edward placed on his head, officially making him king.
He, like the Queen Consort, will address the nation from the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
On September 10, Charles was proclaimed the reigning monarch of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth before addressing the privy council.
He said: “My mother’s reign was unmatched in its length, her dedication and her devotion. Even when we grieve, we give thanks for this faithful life. I am deeply aware of this great heritage and the heavy duties and responsibilities of sovereignty that have now passed on to me.”
Charles added that he “will strive to follow the inspiring example I have been given in upholding constitutional government and seeking peace, harmony and prosperity for the peoples of these islands and the Commonwealth realms and territories throughout the world.”
“I take this opportunity to confirm my willingness and intention to continue the tradition of turning over hereditary income, including the crown estate, to the government for the benefit of all in return for the sovereign grant that supports my official duties as head of state. and boss. of a nation,” he concluded.
