King Charles III’s coronation could take place exactly 70 years on from that of the Queen

King Charles III is expected to be officially crowned King in Spring 2023 on a special date that pays homage to his late mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

Charles was formally proclaimed as King just two days after the Queen’s death, but his official coronation is yet to take place.

Evidently in no major rush for the historic event to take place, it’s believed King Charles, 73, will have his coronation on the 70th anniversary of his mother’s special day.

A source said: “There is no rush for the coronation and there is an awful lot of planning that needs to be done. But it will be in May or June depending on what is going on in the world.”

They continued to tell The Sun: “It potentially could happen on the anniversary of the Queen’s ­coronation on June 2 — that is one thing that is naturally considered.

“While the family remains in official royal mourning until next Monday nothing will be finalised very soon. But everyone is aware that it must happen next year and May or June is the preferred time.”

Following the Queen’s very public funeral, the King has jetted off to Scotland alongside his wife, Queen Consort Camilla to grieve Her Majesty’s death in private.

The nation’s state of mourning came to an end yesterday, Tuesday 20 September, but the royals will continue mourning up until next week.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: "Following the death of Her Majesty the Queen, it is His Majesty the King’s wish that a period of royal mourning be observed from now until seven days after the Queen’s Funeral.

"Royal mourning will be observed by members of the royal family, Royal Household staff and representatives of the Royal Household on official duties, together with troops committed to ceremonial duties."

During this time, members of the Royal Family are not expected to carry out official engagements and flags at royal residences will remain at half-mast until 8am after the final day of royal mourning.

Meanwhile, when the Royals entered a royal mourning period in 2021 after the death of the Queen's husband, Prince Philip, the family continued to attend suitable engagements and when appropriate.

During such events they wore mourning bands to signify that the wearer was in mourning or wished to identify with the commemoration of a family friend, comrade or team member who had died.
