For the coronation of Charles III.

was widely discussed behind closed doors during Queen Elizabeth's lifetime.

Many questions are unanswered.

London – After the state funeral of the late Queen Elizabeth II (96, † 2022), national mourning ended in Great Britain.

Although Charles III.

(73) ascended the throne immediately after the death of his beloved mother, the coronation of the new king will be a long time coming.

It is not yet known exactly when the coronation will take place, but it is clear that countless people are working flat out in the background.

It is unclear: what will become of the king's wife Camilla (74)?

Will Charles III.

crowned alone, or does Camilla also get a thorn?

In his first address to the nation, Charles III.

the "unwavering devotion to duty" of his "beloved wife" Camilla.

It was also the Queen's wish that Camilla appointed Queen Consort before her 70th jubilee.

But it is not certain whether she will actually wear the platinum and diamond crown that was made for the coronation of the Queen Mother in 1937

The facts are quickly gathered: tradition has it that the coronation of the new ruler is delayed until a sufficient period of mourning for the different monarchs has passed.

According to the Telegraph, the coronation will likely take place in the spring or summer of 2023.

But Camilla's right is also being questioned, there are voices for whom it is not clear to put the crown on her in Westminster Abbey.

The Coronation of the late Queen Queen Elizabeth II.

The coronation took place on June 2, 1953, having ascended the throne on February 6, 1952, more than a year later.

Over 8,000 guests from 129 nations came to Westminster Abbey for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.

In contrast, the number of guests at the king's coronation is limited to 2,000 due to health and safety regulations.

As expected, the coronation of Charles III.

be designed in accordance with his ideas of a smaller, more modern monarchy.

The late monarch's coronation was the first to be televised, and it was at her own request.

An estimated 27 million people in the UK watched the ceremony on television and 11 million tuned in to the radio.

Will the orb become a bone of contention at Charles' coronation?

Even if Charles gets his wish and Camilla is crowned his queen, there could be a major controversy leading up to his coronation.

Interestingly, Charles himself is said to have no say in organizing his coronation.

So who are the men and women who could be responsible for a real coronation spectacle?

Codenamed the Golden Orb, a group of establishment titans is secretly planning one of the most sensitive state occasions in decades.

Professor Vernon Bogdanor (78) of King's College London had previously predicted difficulties at Charles' coronation ceremony in The Express.

It is not clearly regulated by law whether Camilla should be crowned alongside the future monarch, he explains.

It will therefore depend on public opinion whether you want to see Camilla as queen or whether you want to resent her long-standing lover status.
