Prince Charles is already beginning to prepare plans for his future coronation. An article from The Mirror site published this Saturday, February 12, quotes a source close to the couple who revealed some of the wishes of the Prince of Wales for his ceremony.

According to this source, Prince Charles would not see things as big as for the coronation of his mother in 1953. No big ceremony planned for the future king.

A less expensive, less long and reduced ceremony

According to this source interviewed by the British site, Prince Charles would like the ceremony to be “shorter, faster, smaller, less expensive and more representative of the different community groups and faiths”. Aspects of the coronation will also be changed to “reflect modern Britain”. The Anglican service and vows taken by Prince Charles, however, are not expected to be changed.

According to the source interviewed, only 2,000 people are expected to attend the ceremony, and some members of the royal family will be missing: “I would not be surprised to see only Charles and Camilla, Kate and William and their children on the balcony of Buckingham Palace afterwards,” the source said.

Even if the number of people present at Westminster Abbey will thus be reduced, there will certainly be a large number of people stationed in front of their televisions to follow the coronation live. During the ceremony of Elizabeth II on June 2, 1953, some 27 million people had followed the ceremony on television and 11 million on the radio.
