The greatest day in modern British history is upon us as the benevolent King Charles III is set to be crowned in front of his millions of adoring fans from both the UK and around the world.
Saturday, May 6, 2023, will mark the historic occasion and the legendary Westminster Abbey will serve as the location for the first British coronation in 70 years. The rest of the world will be watching in envy as the United Kingdom demonstrates how pageantry, class, and decorum should be done.
The King, 74, will be officially proclaimed the monarch of Great Britain in the first coronation since that of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, in 1953. Though the world has changed immeasurably since then, the public’s support of the Royals remains as strong as ever. There are a few anti-monarchy reprobates out there, but thankfully these remain a small minority.
Saying goodbye to Her Majesty was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to go through, but the 6th of May will usher in a new era in the story of the United Kingdom. The vast majority of us have never had the pleasure of witnessing a coronation before due to Elizabeth II’s long reign, so this Thursday will also act as a learning experience for us. Should we make any mistakes, then we must be sure to rectify them so as to not insult or upset our dear, dear monarch.
Coronation Bringing Perspective
Events as big as these really put the less important things in life, such as the cost-of-living crisis, into perspective. Our society has gotten so used to the individual and their problems that we’ve lost focus of what really matters - and that’s serving the Royal Family as best as we possibly can. Rising bills are a pain, but they’re a small price to pay for the opportunity to live under the same sky as those residing in Windsor Castle.
Most Brits aren’t worthy enough to step foot on the same ground as the Royals, but I like to think of myself as an exception to that rule. As the King Charles era begins, I pledge to dedicate my life to serving him, and the rest of the Royals, as much as I possibly can.
I urge all Brits to grab their Union Jacks and take to the streets singing their favourite UK anthems. Small problems like economical imbalance happen in life, but a Royal coronation is a truly once-in-a-lifetime event.
