While the magnificent Edwardian crown is already being made to fit the royal head, Charles is still looking for attendees for his coronation ceremony in May. Subjects can now apply by email. Of course, there are strict rules as to who is eligible.
The British King Charles III. has called on his subjects to apply for ceremonial roles at his coronation ceremony on May 6th. Interested parties can register by e-mail until February 3rd in order to be able to witness the rare spectacle up close. However, a prerequisite for a successful application is that the applicant can prove a connection with a person who was previously responsible for these tasks at the coronation of Elizabeth II in 1953, for example as a descendant or successor in office.
According to the Cabinet Office, King Charles had specifically wanted the coronation "rooted in tradition but reflecting the present". The custom of accepting applications for ceremonial roles at the coronation dates back to 1377, according to the Telegraph report.
According to the newspaper, which is always well-informed on royal matters, Charles has now given up on the idea of holding a thrifty coronation ceremony. Instead, he wanted a unique spectacle with "glorious" pomp and pomp.
The British royal crown had already been taken from the Tower in London in early December in preparation for the coronation. Edward's crown will be reworked for the ceremony, according to Buckingham Palace. The circumference of the crown must therefore be increased for Charles. The crown, made of pure gold and set with precious stones such as rubies, amethysts and sapphires, is the heart of the British crown jewels in the Tower.
