Why King Charles Won’t Get Crowned Right Away

A coronation ceremony usually takes place one year after the new reigning ruler takes the throne. The coronation date will usually be moved to a season when the weather is good. For example, the queen’s father, King George VI, died in February of 1952. She was coronated the next year in June.

Since the ceremony doesn’t take place until a year after the death of the previous monarch, it makes sense that the palace would hold off on discussing the details. However, the traditional coronation announcement is made sooner than usual. 

Will The King Honor His Mother by Choosing His Coronation Day Pick?

Many are already hypothesizing about King Charles’ upcoming big day, and some think he might pick June 2—the same date his mother was crowned. This date also marks the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation. 

It has been 69 years since the coronation and many British citizens are eager to see it take place. Queen Elizabeth’s coronation was the first one to be televised, giving royal fans a never-before-seen inside look at the special ceremony. 

What happens during a Coronation Ceremony

Westminster Abbey will host the coronation, just as it has done for the last 1,000 years. Every British monarch since William the Conqueror (1066) has had his coronation at the church. 

King Charles will be administered the coronation ceremony oath and anointed with oils. He will also receive the ceremonial scepter and orb. The king will then be presented with the St. Edward’s Crown, which was made in 1661.

The Archbishops of Canterbury and other British bishops then swear their loyalty to the new king. A selection of royal peers—most likely including Prince William, Camilla Parker-Bowles, Edward Fitzalan-Howard, Duke of York, and Charles Chetwynd-Talbot, Earl of Shrewsbury—will do the same. 

No plans have yet been made public about King Charles III’s upcoming coronation, but many royal fans are hoping the king will choose to share his coronation date with his mother.
