King Charles III is appointed king in June of next year


New Delhi: King Charles III’s coronation is scheduled for June 3, 2023, according to Page Six. Page Six quoted a UK-based publication as saying that the coronation ceremony would take place in Westminster Abbey. They further stated that the ceremony would be much smaller than his mother’s, in a more modest way.

The reign of the king will begin in June

Despite the fact that Charles assumed the throne two days after Queen Elizabeth II died in September of old age, his reign as king will officially begin in June. Together with him, Camilla Parker-Bowles will be crowned queen consort.

Charles would then become the oldest monarch in British history, having reached the age of 74 at the time of his coronation.

The King will sit on Edward’s chair

According to tradition, the next king will sit on the throne known as Edward’s Chair (named after King Charles II in 1661) while using the scepter, wand and orb of sovereignty, which symbolizes Christendom.

According to Page Six, Charles would receive the Crown of St. Edward after being anointed with oil, blessed and consecrated by the chief clergy, making him king.

Next, the Queen and Charles will address the country from the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

Charles was proclaimed King of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth on 10 September before addressing the Privy Council.

“My mother’s reign was unparalleled in its duration”

At the time, he said in part, “My mother’s reign has no equal in its duration, devotion, and devotion. Even as we mourn we give thanks for this most faithful life. I am fully aware of this great legacy and the grave duties and responsibilities of the Sovereign now bequeathed to me.”

He added that he would “strive to follow my inspiring model of supporting constitutional government and striving for peace, harmony and prosperity for the people of these islands, realms and Commonwealth territories around the world.”

Finally, he concluded: “I take this opportunity to affirm my desire and determination to continue the tradition of ceding hereditary revenue, including ownership of the Crown to the Government for the benefit of all in return for the Sovereign Endowment which supports my official duties as Head of State and Head of the Nation.”
