Queen Elizabeth II’s passing and Charles acceding to the throne marked a new era for Britain.
When the late Queen was crowned some 70 years ago, Charles was just a three-year-old boy, who was totally unaware that the event he attended laid the foundation for him to become King one day.
Now that he became King of England, Charles has his hands full, and along with his, his wife Camilla who will be crowned Queen Consort.
When his mother was crowned in 1954, over 8,000 guests were in attendance at the coronation, and 129 nations were officially represented. King Charles is now allegedly planning to significantly reduce that number on his coronation which is planned to take place next year.
The Palace has confirmed May 6, 2023, to be the date when King Charles’ becomes King of Britain. The coronation, which is given the code-name “Operation Golden Orb,” is set to take place in Westminster Abbey.
The statement regarding this special event Britain hasn’t seen since June 2, 1953, when Queen Elizabeth became the head of monarchy, states that King Charles’ coronation “will reflect the monarch’s role today and look towards the future, while being rooted in longstanding traditions and pageantry.”
Further, the statement reads that “The Coronation is a solemn religious service, together with an occasion for celebration and pageantry.”
It was reported that the initial date of the ceremony was planned to be June 3, a day after what would have marked the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation, but May 6 is as significant, at least for the Sussexes, who celebrate Archie’s birthday on that day.
When it comes to Harry and Meghan, no one knows with certainty whether they will attend the coronation. The rift between them and the royals seems to be getting deeper since the release of their Netflix documentary and the upcoming memoir by Prince Harry titled Spare.
The trailer for the much anticipated documentary featured Meghan Markle and Prince Harry caused quite a stir. At the very beginning, Harry could be heard saying, “No one sees what is happening behind closed doors. I had to do everything I could to protect my family,” while Meghan, who was showed wiping tears at one particular moment, says, “When the stakes are this high, doesn’t it make more sense to hear our story from us?”
Now that the episodes aired, the members of the Firm haven’t issued any comments but royal insiders claim they are not happy.
One person that is believed to be doing everything in their power to smooth things down is Camilla.
Last week, she and the King took a visit of the Welsh town of Wrexham. They greeted the public in the city center, and then Charles felt like it was time to go but Camilla was still preoccupied talking to someone else further down the street. Charles apparently got frustrated and asked from his aids to tell Camilla to hurry up.
“Can we try and get her back again? Please, we need to go. I was trying to wait for her, but she goes on,” King Charles said, obviously perturbed.
Judi James, a body language expert, shared her thoughts on Charles’ behavior with Daily Express.
She believes that Charles not only showed off his temper, but also his disloyalty towards his wife.
“There are no signs of good humour here, just a man pleading to his entourage to get him out of his situation and on to his next booking,” she said.
“I know people are creating empathetic links by saying this is a common theme between husbands and wives and that it makes Charles seem more human, but his wife is the new Queen and he is making a very public scene about her that lowers her status.”
She then went on to add, “It might be understandable that Charles is under a lot of pressure recently, but his mother provided the perfect role model when it came to carrying on with the job without complaining or showing any signs of disloyalty to her nearest and dearest. To speak of his key supporter and fan in this way is ungracious and unkind.”
“Charles really should have popped back to speak to her in person rather than sounding irritated to other people, or maybe grinned fondly to register ongoing affection,” James said.
