This is a date that was long overdue. After the death of Elizabeth II on September 8, Charles automatically became the new King of England. Two days later, on September 10, he officially obtained the status of sovereign at the end of a meeting of the Accession Council at St. James’s Palace in London, during which he was also very moved. . Yes, but here you are, you are aware that the protocol of the Crown is as simple as a Sudoku force 9, and that despite the many formalities already settled, the ultimate ceremony that will complete the picture is still missing: the coronation . An event eagerly awaited by the British people – and for good reason, the last one took place in 1953 – and whose date was long overdue. But this Wednesday, the Bloomberg television channel ended the public’s long wait by revealing that King Charles III will be crowned at Westminster Abbey, London…on June 3, 2023. Yes, you read that right , another 8 long months before the world sees Charles receive his precious crown. Of the latter, we do not know much. According to some experts quoted in the media, the king could wear the same as his mother, namely the crown of Saint Edward: a solid gold piece set with 444 precious stones, which is distinguished by its 4 crosses, its purple velvet and its ermine base.

Charles III, angry? The king returns with humor to his lack of composure

After 70 years of reign, Queen Elizabeth II leaves a great void in the hearts of the British people. Especially since his heir to the throne, Charles, does not enjoy the greatest popularity with the public. The latter has regularly been the subject of criticism in the media, such as last September 14, when he lost his temper in front of the cameras. The cause of his anger? He had been provided with a leaky pen to sign a guestbook. But King Charles, like any good Briton, is not lacking in humor, and when it was necessary to sign new registers on October 4, on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of Dunfermline Abbey, in Scotland, the sovereign – who had for the occasion brought his own pen holder – could not help but allude to this unfortunate incident. “These things are so capricious,” he said to the crowd while casting a pointed look at his wife, Queen Consort Camilla. This time, however, the operation was a resounding success…no ink leaks or bloodshed!
