The Coronation of King Charles III will be held on May 6, 2023, Buckingham Palace has announced.
The ceremony will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, and will also see the King’s wife Camilla crowned as Queen Consort.
“Buckingham Palace is pleased to announce that the Coronation of His Majesty The King will take place on Saturday 6th May, 2023,” the statement read.
“The Coronation Ceremony will take place at Westminster Abbey, London, and will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
“The Ceremony will see His Majesty King Charles III crowned alongside The Queen Consort.
“The Coronation will reflect the monarch’s role today and look towards the future, while being rooted in longstanding traditions and pageantry.”
King Charles’ official Coronation date will also clash with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son’s fourth birthday.
On May 6, Meghan and Prince Harry’s eldest child Archie Mountbatten-Windsor will turn four.
It is still early days to know whether or not Prince Harry and Meghan will attend the Coronation on May 6, an important date for other royal family members.
The day marks the wedding anniversary of the Queen’s sister Princess Margaret to her ex-husband, the Earl of Snowdon, in 1960.
It is also the date that Charles’ great-great-grandfather, King Edward VII, died in 1910
