THE KING .................


Like it says below  .........and you were  afraid to ask ...but  now you know   here it is ........

It’s hard to believe that so many months have passed already since we lost Queen Elizabeth II. Of course, now that the UK and the wider world have been through a reasonable mourning period for the monarch, it’s time to crown her replacement. King Charles III has effectively been doing his late mother’s job since she passed away but now is the time to really make things official.

On Saturday, May 6, he and his wife Camilla will have their coronation, marking a day that Charles has probably waited most of his life for. In the build-up to the special occasion, we’ve heard quite a lot about what’s set to happen on Saturday. So, here is everything we know about the King’s official coronation.

Charles and Camilla’s coronation will take place at Westminster Abbey

Like plenty of notable occasions in the Royal Family, the coronation will take place at Westminster Abbey. Of course, this won’t be where proceedings start on the big day. Instead, it will begin with Charles and Camilla leaving Buckingham Palace and heading to the historic location in the Diamond Jubilee State Coach. The pair will reportedly ride in great comfort, given that the carriage apparently comes with air conditioning, good suspension, and electric windows. Their journey will take them down The Mall, through Whitehall, and then along Parliament Square before they arrive at their destination. Waiting for them will be the Archbishop of Canterbury, who’s been responsible for conducting coronations since 1066.

Proceedings will start early in the morning for those in the UK

According to the schedule for the coronation, Charles and Camilla will leave Buckingham Palace at around 10:20 am UK time. Understandably, that means many Americans will likely still be asleep when they set off, with those on the west coast reportedly eight hours behind those in London. Of course, by this point, we’ll already be several hours into the proceedings of the big day. Public viewing areas along the main procession route apparently open at 6 am, with invited guests free to arrive from 7:15 am. A few hours later, political figures and members of the Royal Family are expected to show up, with Charles and Camilla set to make their big entrance at around 11 am.

The coronation will include pledges, music, and St. Edward’s crown

Many people watching the coronation won’t have experienced one before, so they probably won’t know what to expect from the service itself. Apparently, it will include Charles making a pledge in a coronation oath, one that will supposedly be updated to reflect Britain’s diversity. He will also be given St. Edward’s Crown to wear, which will officially mark him as the new monarch. Around a dozen musical pieces will reportedly play during the ceremony, including one composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber and another that will pay tribute to Charles’ father. This will reportedly be enjoyed by roughly 2,000 guests in Westminster Abbey itself, a drop from the 8,000+ that apparently attended Queen Elizabeth’s.
