- King Charles III plans some rule changes at his coronation
- He wants to do without certain traditions
- This is the reason behind it
After the death of Queen Elizabeth II (†96), King Charles III (73) was named Head of State of the British Kingdom. The official coronation is scheduled to take place in June 2023, but a few details about the ceremony have already been leaked. Apparently, Charles is planning several rule changes.
King Charles III: That's why he doesn't want a glamorous coronation
As reported by The Sun, the coronation of King Charles III differs greatly in some respects from the ceremony at which his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, was crowned in 1953. For example, the guest list is to be reduced from 8,000 to 2,000 participants.
The reason behind this is that King Charles III, who will not live as monarch at Buckingham Palace, knows that his people are currently suffering greatly from the effects of inflation. The financial situation is tense for many Britons and the monarch thinks that a glamorous coronation would be out of place.

In addition, the coronation ceremony of King Charles III doesn't last a full three hours like his mother's. There is also a discussion about whether the dress code will be relaxed. Instead of official robes, normal suits would then also be allowed.
Royal experts already see signs in these considerations that Charles III will deliberately place less value on royal pomp after the first information about the coronation of King Charles III is known. We are eagerly awaiting the upcoming ceremony, which is scheduled to take place in the summer of 2023, on June 3rd to be precise.
