King Charles’ coronation ‘will last just over an hour’ | show news


The coronation of King Charles will reportedly last just over an hour.

The service at Westminster Abbey, which is rumored to be scheduled for June 3 next year, will also have fewer rituals and be more diverse than the 1953 ceremony in which his late mother, Queen Elizabeth, was crowned, according to Mail On Sunday.

He reports that the plans for Charles’s coronation are contained in a plan called Operation Golden Orb, which will reduce his coronation to about a third of the three hours it took to crown the Queen.

A source quoted by the Mail On Sunday said: “The king has stripped himself of much of the coronation in recognition that the world has changed in the last 70 years.”

The source added about how it will be more religiously and culturally diverse and not involve Charles changing outfits during the event, as the Queen did: “King Charles is unlikely to do the same and the language will be adapted to make it understandable.” for a more modern audience.

The publication also reported that the guest list for the event will be cut from 8,000 to 2,000, with “hundreds of nobles and parliamentarians” missing out.

He added that MPs and peers are likely “to be told they cannot be guaranteed a place.”

Rituals such as presenting the monarch with gold bars will also be scrapped, while Prince William is likely to play a major role in helping plan the ceremony.

The Mail On Sunday said experts had told them the Duke of Norfolk, who is leading the coronation, had been tasked with preparing a simpler, shorter and more diverse ceremony, but said he declined to comment to the publication on His plans.

Bloomberg reported last week that Her Majesty’s ceremony would be almost 70 years after the coronation of her mother, Queen Elizabeth, on June 2, 1953, when she was 25 years old.

The outlet added that there were ongoing discussions about which days can be made public holidays to mark the occasion.

The queen, who died on September 8 at her Balmoral home at the age of 96, was crowned 16 months after becoming monarch, although the official ceremony is usually held a year after the royal ascension to the throne.

It is believed that Friday, June 2, may become a bank holiday to commemorate the coronation of Carlos, 73 years old.

The Queen’s iconic coronation cost £1.57m, the equivalent of £46m today.

More than 8,000 guests representing 129 nations traveled to Westminster Abbey for the Queen’s coronation, which was so packed VIPs were forced to sit on makeshift benches.

A royal source previously told the Daily Telegraph of Charles’ coronation plans: “It will be shorter, earlier, smaller, less expensive and more representative of different community groups and religions.”
