London It will be the scene this Saturday of the first coronation of a monarch in seven decades. Charles III, king from the moment his mother died, on September 8, 2022, he will be formally crowned in a ceremony that is practically ruled by tradition but open to details of the times, from an air-conditioned carriage to a detailed audiovisual follow-up from start to finish and from all angles.
The celebrations will formally start with a procession from the Buckingham Palace, around 11.20 Spanish time. The monarchs will have military custody and family accompaniment, but the entourage will be considerably smaller than the one that accompanied Elizabeth II in 1953, in which members of other royal families and political leaders participated. Carlos III will also introduce as a novelty the float used to move around (instead of a car from 1762) built in 2012 to celebrate the Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee, and that it is lighter and more comfortable. Here we tell you this Friday the prolegomena of the historic day that the United Kingdom will live today.
