First of all, there are, of course, other members of the British royal family. Then we talk about William, the eldest son of Charles and his wife Catherine, Prince and Princess of Wales. Charles’ younger sister and brother Anne and Edward also appear. Ann Zara Tindall’s daughter and her husband, Mike Tindall, were also invited. Just like some of Charles and Camilla’s grandchildren. Four of them, including 9-year-old Prince George, even had a special part during the ceremony. They’re Pages of Honor, which means they’ll walk along the aisle of Westminster Abbey and they’ll be wearing the robes of Charles and Camilla.
Among the less visible attendees of the British royal family are Prince Harry and Prince Andrew. Both of them have recently had problems with the royal family. Harry for accusing his family of abusing his wife, Megan. Although Harry travels to London, Meghan stays home with the children in the US.
Andrew is under fire for his involvement in a sexual assault scandal. Although there was some relevance in the affair, his image suffered a permanent decline. Andrew’s daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, are also on the guest list.
Members of other royal houses are also welcome at Charles’ coronation. So come Albert and Charlene, Prince and Princess of Monaco. Japan’s Crown Prince Akishimo and Crown Princess Kiko also made the crossing, as did Carl Gustav, King of Sweden. He takes his daughter, Princess Victoria, with him. Crown Prince Frederick and Mary will come on behalf of Denmark.
Members of the Dutch royal family also cross the North Sea. King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima will be present during the coronation. Princess Beatrix and Princess Amalia will not attend the ceremony, but will attend a reception the day before.
Charles’s coronation isn’t just for members of the royal family. Politicians from all over the world travel to London to attend, and of course there are also British political leaders. The meeting was attended by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, as well as former Prime Ministers Liz Truss and Tony Blair.
Scottish Prime Minister Hamza Yusuf will also travel to London, as will French President Emmanuel Macron, Polish President Andrzej Duda and Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese. Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos will also attend the coronation ceremony. Joe Biden is not present. He is being replaced by his wife, Jill Biden.
The arrival of David and Victoria Beckham has not yet been confirmed, but the British media write that it is very likely that they were also invited. They have also been at major royal family events recently, such as Harry and Meghan’s wedding and earlier William and Catherine’s wedding.
In addition to all kinds of well-known personalities, hundreds of unknown people also attend the coronation. Charles and Camilla have invited over 850 charitable champions to attend. They also include hundreds of people who have been awarded the Order of the British Empire. Also referred to as the British Empire Medal, this medal recognizes an achievement or contribution of service to the community in a local area.
