After decades of waiting, Charles will finally be crowned King Charles III of England on Saturday, 6 May.
He unofficially became the King on 8 September 2022 following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, but the official coronation will take place after eight months of mourning and after a thorough organization of the event.
King Charles's coronation ceremony will take place at Westminster Abbey where the sovereign will take the oath and where the anointing, the delivery of the globe and then the enthronement will take place.
The ceremony will be presided over by the Archbishop of Canterbury, as tradition dictates.

Charles will not fail to wear the ermine fur and the two crowns, the Imperial State Crown (the crown with the diamond which alone is worth 400 million pounds) and the St. Edward's Crown, the most important of the English Crown Jewels.
These have already been taken from the Tower of London, where they are usually kept with the other jewels.

It is not allowed to take photos of the crown jewels but it is possible to view them at the Tower of London

Camilla will be crowned queen consort on the same day.
The coronation ceremony will be preceded by The King's Procession and followed by The Coronation Procession, with the royal family returning to Buckingham Palace among the crowd.
Finally, the greeting to the subjects from the balcony of Buckingham Palace will end the ceremony.

The celebrations is supposed to continue on Sunday, 7 May at Windsor Castle with a large concert open to the public and the Great Coronation Lunch.
The Big Help Out will follow on Monday, 8 May, a day of encouragement for volunteering.
To mark the occasion, a public holiday was granted throughout the United Kingdom on 8 May.
Pubs, clubs and bars will be allowed to stay open for an extra two hours on the Friday and Saturday of the coronation weekend, and there will be street parties and volunteering initiatives.

The ceremony will be rooted in traditions but will also reflect the role of the monarch today and looking at the future, in fact the coronation procession will be more modest than that of Queen Elizabeth II.
The coronation service will include recognition, oath, anointing, investiture, coronation and homage.
The guests will include the prime minister, representatives of Parliament, heads of state and other royals from around the world.
After weeks of speculation, Prince Harry has confirmed that he will attend his father's coronation on May 6, while Meghan Markle will remain in California with their children.
Tensions in the British royal family have remained high since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to step down from their royal roles in 2020.
Also political leaders and representatives of international organizations will attend the coronation ceremony and the ceremony is expected to be followed by millions of people around the world through television broadcasts and social media.
The coronation celebrations of King Charles III will also serve to remember and honor the long reign of Queen Elizabeth II, who was Queen Elizabeth II for 69 years, from 1952 until her death last year. During her reign, Queen Elizabeth II she was a symbol of stability and continuity for the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth, and her spirit of service and dedication will continue to be celebrated under her son's reign.
Despite the tensions and challenges that the United Kingdom and the British royal family have faced in recent years, the coronation of King Charles III represents a new era and an opportunity for the monarchy to continue to play its role in British society and in the Commonwealth.
King Charles III and Queen Camilla are both passionate supporters of environmental and social issues, and are expected to continue to use their positions to promote these issues during their reign.

I moved to London over 2 years ago but only last year I started writing for a local newsletter for Expats in London telling about my experience in this big city and giving advice to newcomers. London is a very dynamic city and has a lot for everyone but it’s important to have a local point of view to navigate it without getting lost. Let me be your guide to hidden London!
