According to media reports, the official coronation ceremony of King Charles III will take place on June 3, 2023. Even though he took the throne two days after the death of his mother Queen Elizabeth II, his reign as king will officially begin in June next year. His wife Camilla Parker Bowles will be crowned as Queen Consort on that day.
It is reported that the coronation ceremony will take place at Westminster Abbey and be a small and modest celebration. He will become the oldest monarch in British history as he will be 74 years old at the time of his coronation. King Charles will receive the crown of St. Edward after being anointed with oil, blessed and consecrated by senior clergy. He and his wife Camilla will address the country from the balcony of Buckingham Palace. King Charles will sit on the throne known as Edward’s Chair and wield the sovereign’s sceptre, rod and orb that symbolises the Christian world.
