Coronation

Westminster Abbey before the Coronation of King Charles III

On May 6th, 2023, Charles III and his wife Camilla will be crowned as the King and Queen of the United Kingdom. As per tradition, the ceremony will be held at Westminster Abbey and graced by honorary guests and royals from all around the world. This year will hold a special significance as over 850 members from the community have been invited, a meritable number of whom actively volunteered and contributed to charitable causes within their localities during the Covid pandemic.

With a history dating back to the 17th century, the coronation of Charles III as the king will involve the presentation of two scepters and an orb, symbolising the authority and governance of the crown. One of the scepters, which was also present at Queen Elizabeth's funeral, features the world's largest cut white diamond and serves as a representation of power. 

The second sceptre, known as the Sovereign's Sceptre with Dove, is crowned by a golden cross at its pinnacle, symbolising the monarch's spiritual role and their attribute of mercy. Like the sceptres, the Sovereign's Orb, a gilded ball adorned with precious gems, is an integral part of the coronation regalia. Towards the end of the coronation ceremony, the presentation of the orb signifies that the monarch's authority is bestowed by God. The concluding ritual of the coronation is the anointment of the king, during which the St. Edward's Crown will be positioned on the head of Charles III.

The coronation will be commemorated by public ceremonies and festivities across the United Kingdom and other countries around the globe.
