The new monarch is being celebrated by millions as Britons take the day off to enjoy the celebrations.
Will we have a bank holiday on the day of King Charles’ coronation?
The day of King Charles’ coronation is declared a national bank holiday.
The public can take the day off to celebrate when the longest-waiting heir to the throne finally ascends the throne in a royal ceremony.
The event, which will be the UK’s first coronation in 70 years, will be broadcast live and is expected to be witnessed by millions of people around the world.
When is King Charles’ coronation?
Although Charles technically became king the moment his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, died, his coronation has not yet taken place.
It is scheduled for June 3, 2023, nine months after Her Majesty’s death, reports said.
King Charles was proclaimed the new sovereign by the special accession council on September 10, 2022.
However, because the coronation is a cause for celebration, it does not take place in the months following the Queen’s death, which represent a time of national mourning.
The Queen’s own coronation took place on June 2, 1953, over a year after her accession to the throne on February 6, 1952.
The actual coronation ceremony of King Charles takes place in Westminster Abbey, according to a 900-year tradition.
The service, which will be chaired by the Archbishop of Canterbury, will be attended by representatives of Parliament, Prime Ministers and Commonwealth leaders and other foreign officials.
According to the plans, Charles will take the Coronation Oath “to rule by law, to administer justice with mercy – pledges symbolized by the four swords in the coronation regalia (the crown jewels) – and to uphold the Church of England”.
He is then “anointed, blessed and consecrated” by the archbishop and receives an orb and scepter.
