King Charles III’s coronation date revealed by Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace announced via Twitter on Tuesday that King Charles III’s coronation date has officially been set.

“The Coronation of His Majesty The King will take place on Saturday 6 May 2023 at Westminster Abbey,” a statement on behalf of the royal family read.

“The Ceremony will see His Majesty King Charles III crowned alongside The Queen Consort.”

Previous reports had incorrectly declared that the coronation would take place on June 3.

However, palace sources had pointed out at the time that the date was not yet set in stone.

According to Bloomberg, Charles is set to have a much smaller ceremony than his late mother, Queen Elizabeth II, had in 1953.

Charles will be 74. His birthday is coming up in a few weeks on Nov. 14.

According to the royal family’s official website, representatives of the Houses of Parliament, Church and State, prime ministers, leading citizens from the Commonwealth and representatives of other countries are invited to attend the ceremony.
