On May 6 next year, Charles will be officially crowned King of the United Kingdom. The ceremony will be held at Westminster Abbey in London, according to a Buckingham Palace report.
Charles, 73, immediately became king when his mother Elizabeth died on September 8 at the age of 96. Queen Consort Camilla will also be crowned on May 6.
The ceremony, with a strong religious character, is led by the Archbishop of Canterbury. The ceremony has both traditional and contemporary elements, which reflect, among other things, the role the king plays today and also looks to the future.
British media are speculating that Charles will opt for a more rigorous coronation. The British economy is going through hard times, and a growing group of Britons can barely make ends meet due to the sharp rise in energy prices.
Elizabeth was crowned in 1953 and has held the throne for more than 70 years. Buckingham Palace said Elizabeth died of old age.
