England is preparing for a very important event on May 6, 2023. For good reason, the country will crown its new king, Charles III. For the occasion, the royal family intends to put the small dishes in the big ones and wishes that everything is perfect. If the list of guests is not yet fully defined and there remains a vagueness concerning the presence of Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, it has been recorded, by Charles III, that a tribute to his father, Prince Philip, would be returned at his coronation. It will not be a read text or a personal testimony but music that will be played at Westminster Abbey. According to a statement from the royal family, it was said that King Charles had personally requested a composition in honor of his father.

“His Majesty the King has personally commissioned the new music and shaped and selected the musical program for the Service,” the palace said in a statement. “At Her Majesty’s request, in tribute to her late father, His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Greek Orthodox music will also feature in the service performed by the Byzantine Chant Ensemble,” it said. he adds.

Prince Philip was born in Greece

As a reminder, Prince Philip died on April 9, 2021, at the age of 99. If Charles III chose this music to pay homage to his father at his coronation, it was because he was born in Greece and baptized in the Greek Orthodox Church, converting religions before his marriage to Queen Elizabeth II in November 1947.
