Don’t worry, the royal family is in no rush to plan the coronation; King Charles III immediately assumed the title of King when Queen Elizabeth II died in September of 2022.
The date is set for May 6, 2023, and “will reflect the monarch’s role today and look towards the future, while being rooted in longstanding traditions and pageantry,” according to a press release from Buckingham Palace. The event happens to be on the same date as Meghan and Harry’s son Archie’s 4th birthday. It is also the final step in Operation Golden Orb, the plan that outlines the new King’s ascension into his role starting with the death of his mother and ending with his coronation.
The coronation will take place in Westminster Abbey, and will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury. It will take place on Saturday morning, and will be the first official event of Coronation Weekend. Most of the royal family will be attending, including the Prince and Princess of Wales. Camilla will be crowned Queen Consort, though she, like Charles, immediately assumed her new role once the former Queen died.
