One thought on “Coronation of King Charles III

  1. After the sad period of mourning due to the death of the late Queen Elizabeth II, I am looking forward to King Charles’ coronation. It will be the first one I will be able to truly witness since I was not even 1 year old when the late Queen was crowned. I belong to King Charles’ generation, and I hope that he will have a ceremony full of historical significance even if it doesn’t have the over-the-top pomp that the late Queen’s had. 1953 was certainly a different time, so different it would seem like more time has passed than it actually has. But I do believe that the historical bits should be left intact. A regal, sober, traditional ceremony would fit the bill very nicely, IMHO. I’m very much looking forward to May 6th!
