Since the death of Queen Elizabeth II on 8 September, Charles III acceded to the throne   and settled into his new role as sovereign, but his official coronation has not taken place yet. On 11 October Buckingham Palace confirmed that it will take place on the morning of Saturday 6 may 2023. Below, is everything we know so far ahead of the historic event : A coronation is both the religious and symbolic ceremony to crown the monarch. It formalizes the role of the monarch as the head of the Church of England and the transfer of their title. King Charles King Charles-King Charles-King Charles There are several stages to the service
  • The recognition: The monarch is presented to those gathered in the Abbey and the congregation shouts “God Save the King!”, and the trumpet sounds.
  • The oath: King swears to uphold the law and the Church of England.
  • The anointing: The king sits over the Coronation chair with a gold cloak held over the chair to conceal the king from view. The Archbishop anoints the King’s hands, breasts and head with holy oil.
  • The investiture: The king is presented with items including:
Sceptre, representing power  Royal Orb, representing religious and moral authority Soverign’s Sceptre:A symbol of justice and mercy. At last, the archbishop places the imperial crown on the King’s head.
  • Homage: The king moves to the throne. Peers kneel before the monarch to pay homage.
Queen Elizabeth II with Sceptre, Royal Orb and The Imperial Crown According to the Telegraph, plans have been drawn up under the Codename Operation Golden Orb, and will reflect the new sovereign’s vision for “a smaller modern monarchy”. The ceremony will be shorter than three hours and will include representatives from different faiths and community groups to accurately reflect the nation’s ethnic diversity. It will also be less expensive as the King has expressed the service, be considered “good value”, and it will include representatives of different faith groups and diverse communities representing the modern state of the UK. During the ceremony the St Edwards Crown will be briefly placed on the King's head The king will be crowned with the 17th-century St Edward’s Crown. It is quite heavy and will only be used at the moment of crowning, and was also worn by Queen Elizabeth at her own coronation.

Alot of controversy centers around the precious diamonds found in two of the crowns.

One is the Imperial State Crown, which the King would put on towards the end of the ceremony and when he appears on the Buckingham Palace balcony. That crown contains the Cullinan II diamond, also called the Second Star of Africa. It was given to Edward VII by the government of Transvaal- a former British colony that is now South Africa. The Queen Consort Camilla is expected to wear the Queen Mother’s coronation crown, which contains another controversial diamond, the Koh-I-Noor.   King Charles King Charles-King Charles-King Charles   There will be an extra bank holiday all across the UK on Monday 8 May Buckingham Palace has announced various events including a concert and a laser lights show at Windsor Castle on Sunday. Big lunch street parties have also been encouraged for that day. The ceremony is likely to be televised live where the King along with the Queen Consort Camilla would travel from Buckingham to Westminster abbey and then back to Buckingham for the coronation procession. There have been talks that Harry and Megan would also be present at the coronation but it is not clear yet …  The power is going to shift again, the whole world along with the U.K. is waiting for this day. It will be a different experience with  changes in some customs along with the change in the thoughts. Everyone is waiting to see what the new monarch will bring for them in the future.
