‘Wouldn’t surprise me!’ King Charles to consider final tribute to late Queen in coronation


King Charles III could consider timing his Coronation as a final tribute to his late mother, Queen Elizabeth II, a royal expert suggested.

Mr Walker replied: “There’s nothing official, I’m afraid.

“I would love it, and this is possible, that it happens on the 70th anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation, which was June 2, 1953.

“So it wouldn’t surprise me if Buckingham Palace are having the same thought as I am, and do it on June 2, 2023.”

If not that exact date, Mr Walker claimed it is likely to take place during “spring time”.

In particular, around “April, May, June, around that time. It takes a while to plan.

“I don’t think it will be sixteen months [between] Procession and Coronation like it was for Elizabeth II.”

He concluded, however, that it will still be “a few months away yet”.

Following the Queen’s death on September 8, Charles succeeded to the role of King straight away.

The accessions came after 64 years of holding the role of Prince of Wales, and 53 years since his investiture in 1969.

He was next in line to the throne since his mother became Queen in 1952, followed by his now presumptive heirs Prince William, the Prince of Wales, and Prince George.

It was reported that both Charles and his younger sister, and the Queen’s only daughter, Princess Anne were present when the Queen died.

The King immediately succeeded her on the throne and was confirmed as the new sovereign in a ceremony at St James’s Palace two days after Her late Majesty’s death.

Prince William and Camilla, the Queen Consort were the first members of the Privy Council to sign the document certifying the regular accession of King Charles III.
