The great coronation of the British King Charles III. and his wife Camilla will take place in May this year. In the ceremony, the new monarch will break with tradition and refuse to conform to centuries of monarchs wearing traditional royal dress, The Independent reported.
At previous coronations, the monarch traditionally wore silk stockings and trousers. However, it has been reported that King Charles may forgo this tradition and several ancient rituals and instead don his military uniform. According to the outlet, the new monarch came to the decision after consulting with senior aides who felt the traditional attire was outdated or too outdated.
In particular, the grand coronation ceremony of King Charles and his wife Camilla will be held at Westminster Abbey on May 6th. The next day, Windsor Castle will also host a Coronation Concert, where an orchestra featuring some of the world’s greatest entertainers will play musical favorites, and a special Coronation Choir, before buildings across the country are illuminated.

According to Buckingham Palace, there will be a public vote for tickets, open to several thousand members of the public to participate. Street festivals are held on Sundays, encouraging communities and neighbors to come together to share food.
On Monday, people will also be encouraged to volunteer with charities, faith and community groups to honor the King’s public service and seek to create a legacy of volunteering.
The palace has still not announced which members of the royal family will attend the king’s coronation. So far, the coronation has been overshadowed by Prince Harry’s well-known memoir, Spare, in which he criticized the king and other family members.
