Must Read

Seventy years separate the coronation of Charles III from that of his mother Elizabeth II. The religious ceremony for the coronation of the new monarch will begin on Saturday 6 May at 2pm.) Some 2 000 people, members of the British royal family, crowned heads, heads of state and members of associations, to name but a few, will take their places in the pews of Westminster Abbey in the heart of London.

In front of millions of television viewers, Charles III will take the coronation oath in front of Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, spiritual leader of the Anglican Church, and will then be anointed with the Holy Chrism before receiving the royal attributes, the sceptres and the crown of Saint Edward. Within the walls of the church building the words “God save the King” will then resound. Prince William, heir to the throne, will play a crucial role. His son, Prince George, who has been appointed page of honour, will also be in the spotlight. After much prevarication, Prince Harry has finally made it known that he will attend the coronation, but without his wife Meghan Markle and their two children Archie and Lilibet. The coronation is being followed with mixed interest by the public, with two thirds of the population showing little or no interest in the event, against a backdrop of severe economic difficulties in the UK.
