The Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort will take place at Westminster Abbey on Saturday 6th May, 2023. The Service will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury and will reflect the Monarch’s role today and look towards the future, while being rooted in longstanding traditions and pageantry.

The Coronation service will take place at Westminster Abbey, as it has for the last 900 years. The ceremony is an occasion for pageantry and celebration, but it is also a solemn religious rite when His Majesty King Charles III will be crowned alongside Her Majesty The Queen Consort. 

Across the Coronation Weekend, there will be further opportunities for people to come together in celebration of the historic occasion.

And to do our bit, we have collated a selection of titles to celebrate both King Charles and the monarchy in general. What better time to learn about the man who will be crowned on May 6th or investigate and appreciate the history of coronations.
