The 73-year-old monarch is likely to officially ascend the throne next year. The celebratory corn is scheduled for late spring next year and organizing officials are now considering rescheduling the event for June 2nd. This would be Charles' final tribute to his mother, as it is the same date that the late Queen was officially crowned in 1953.
A source stressed there was 'no rush' to hold the ceremony later this year, telling The Sun newspaper: 'There is still a lot to do and plan for. But it will be in May or June depending on what's going on in the world. It could potentially happen on the anniversary of the Queen's coronation on June 2nd - that's one thing that will of course be taken into account.” However, such a decision will not be taken lightly, especially as the royal family is currently in the mourning phase . The insider added: 'While the family remains in official royal mourning until next Monday, nothing will be decided and it won't happen anytime soon after that. But everyone is aware that it has to happen next year and May or June is the preferred time.”
The service is likely to be 'shorter, smaller and cheaper' than the Queen's coronation 70 years ago, but would include a celebration of her life. And while most traditional aspects of the ceremony are likely to remain, it is believed the King wants to celebrate and protect the UK's diversity by inviting members of different faiths to be part of the community. A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: 'The King is keenly aware of the struggles modern Britons are feeling and will see his wishes achieved while his coronation ceremonies remain accurate and true and honor the long-cherished traditions of the past should, it will also be representative of a monarchy in a modern world.”
