Whether you love, hate or don’t particularly care for the monarchy, there is no denying that the coronation of King Charles III will be a monumental, historic and culturally significant moment that we will get to be a part of.
This is what the day will look like according to Buckingham Palace:
The Coronation Service will take place on the morning of Saturday, 6th May 2023 (no specific time has been given, but it is likely to be around 10am) at Westminster Abbey. The preparations leading up to this will also be televised live that morning, and will be broadcast on various channels in the days prior to the big day too.
The Coronation has been described by the Royals and officials as “a solemn religious service, as well as an occasion for celebration and pageantry”.
The King and The Queen Consort will arrive at Westminster Abbey in procession from Buckingham Palace, known as ‘The King’s Procession’. After the Service, they will return to Buckingham Palace in a larger ceremonial procession, known as ‘The Coronation Procession’. The couple will then be joined by other members of the Royal Family.
At Buckingham Palace, The King and The Queen Consort – plus other members of the family – will appear on the balcony to conclude the day’s ceremonial events.
Following this, there will be a Coronation Concert on Sunday at Windsor Castle, and a special Bank Holiday on Monday.
How exciting! Although, it still feels weird saying “the King”, and seeing “God save the King”, instead of the Queen!
With Love, Abi X
