In the coming year, King Charles III. be crowned, that much is certain. The first details about the event are now known, which could, however, be considerably smaller than originally planned for financial reasons.
Smaller, shorter, cheaper and faster? First details about the coronation of King Charles III. leaked at Westminster Abbey. That’s why he and the palace are planning a significantly smaller ceremony next spring.
As the Daily Mail reports of the so-called “Operation Golden Orb,” it could take place on the 70th anniversary of the coronation of his recently deceased mother, Queen Elizabeth II, on June 2, 2023. While the monarch was preparing for her own coronation had to wait a full 16 months in 1953, Charles’s coronation will take place after a much shorter period.
Sources have also revealed that the ceremony will be “shorter, smaller and cheaper” than his mother’s coronation, although it will also include a celebration of your life. The service is intended to reflect the “downsized” monarchy he has redesigned and would also take into account the ongoing cost of living in Britain.
When Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in June 1953, the lavish ceremony was a much-needed morale boost for a war-ravaged country. It is believed to have cost £1.57 million at the time, which is now around £45 million.
Traditional aspects remain
The traditional aspects of the ceremony are expected to remain unchanged. In addition, the king, who is also the head of the Church of England, is said to try to celebrate the diversity of the United Kingdom. Members of various faiths, including Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists, are invited to the service at London Abbey.
With the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8 at Balmoral Castle, her firstborn, Prince Charles, became the new king after her 70-year reign. At the same time, “Operation Golden Orb” sprang into action. After the state funeral and burial on Monday, the royal family withdrew until next Monday as part of a period of mourning.
