Although King Charles has been appointed as the new monarch, he still has to go through the official coronation ceremony.
As recently announced, the event will take place in the spring, specifically on May 6th.
In addition, the British will receive an extra day off – Monday – to celebrate Charles’ coronation, allowing them to have a three-day break from work.
However, the main news regarding the coronation is that Charles has decided to break with tradition.
He will not wear the ceremonial coronation robes that have been developed over centuries during the ceremony.
According to an insider at the royal court, Charles does not want to wear the clothes in which his grandfather, great-grandfather, and many ancestors were crowned.
Instead, he will be crowned in his military uniform, as he believes that the traditional robes are outdated and would look ridiculous on a 21st-century king.
This news has received mixed reactions from the public.
Some people approve of the king’s desire to keep up with the times, while others express disappointment that Charles has already begun to break centuries-old traditions that his mother, Elizabeth, carefully observed.
However, the news that Charles has decided to reduce the scope of the celebration to reduce the cost of the event has been approved by almost everyone, given the difficult situation in the British economy.
One thing the new king will not skimp on is a big concert in London, which will take place the day after the coronation.
This show will include a huge symphony orchestra of 74 musicians who will perform both classical music, which Charles loves, and popular melodies.
