Plan of events for the coronation of Carlos III published
Buckingham Palace officially announced the date of the upcoming coronation of Charles III and his wife, Queen Camilla, and also unveiled a plan for the coronation events.
A solemn service will be held at Westminster Abbey on May 6, led by the Archbishop of Canterbury. Following the coronation ceremony, the King and Queen consort, accompanied by the coronation procession and members of the royal family, will return to Buckingham Palace, where they will go up to the balcony and greet the happy subjects.
The following day, May 7, there will be a coronation concert at Windsor Palace, whose crown will be a virtual choir that brings together prominent singers from across the British Commonwealth. This will be followed by a great lunch, a concert, and a laser show.
On Monday 8th May, British citizens will have an extra day off so they can properly relax and remember forever the celebrations for the monarch’s coronation.
The previous ceremony took place almost 70 years ago, on June 2, 1953, when Elizabeth II was crowned. About 8 thousand guests from almost 130 countries of the world came to London for the celebrations.
The coronation ceremony of Carlos III promises to be much more modest: it is known that around two thousand guests plan to arrive in the capital of the kingdom. And the ceremony itself will take place truncated due to the age of the new king: on November 14, the monarch turned 74 years old.
