The Coronation of

His Majesty King Charles III

The coronation of His Majesty King Charles III

The coronation of the new Sovereign follows months after his or her accession, following a period of mourning and as a result of the enormous amount of preparation required to organise the ceremony.

Their Majesties will arrive at Westminster Abbey in procession from Buckingham Palace, known as ‘The King’s Procession’. After the Service, Their Majesties will return to Buckingham Palace in a larger ceremonial procession, known as ‘The Coronation Procession’.

The Coronation Procession will include Armed Forces from across the Commonwealth and the British Overseas Territories, and all Services of the Armed Forces of the United Kingdom.

Soldiers have flown home from operational duties or training exercises from as far afield as Cyprus, Iraq, Kenya and Estonia to represent their regiments and corps for the first rehearsals for the Coronation Procession. Under the cover of darkness, thousands of military personnel came together on the streets of London to practice the ceremonial support for the Coronation of Their Majesties The King and The Queen Consort.
