According to reports, Prince Charles’ coronation ceremony will be vastly different from that of the Queen Elizabeth. Under the codename Operation Golden Orb, preparations have apparently made for the important ceremony.
Prince of Wales is aiming a shorter and much less expensive coronation than his mother’s, which cost £1.57 million. When compared to Queen Elizabeth II’s 1953 coronation, the number of attendees has rumoured to reduce by three-quarters.
It has predicted that the Prince Charles will ensure that his coronation is more reflective of many community groups and beliefs. This is part of his vision for a contemporary slimmed-down monarchy.
Moreover, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan may not even join Charles on Buckingham Palace’s balcony after the momentous occasion.
The British empire at the time had a significant impact on the royal coronation on June 2, 1953. When the Queen had crowned, the British Empire still included more than 70 overseas countries.
The Queen’s coronation march included more than 40,000 armed forces members. It was including 2,000 troops from the Commonwealth and 500 from the colonies. The march to Westminster Abbey carried approximately 8,000 dignitaries.
