Britain’s King Charles plans to scale back the coronation amid cost-of-living crisis

Britain’s King Charles is said to be planning a coronation ‘less expensive’ than his mother’s coronation and ‘lightening’ working property as an acknowledgment of Britain’s high cost of living.

The Daily Mirror quoted a royal source as saying the new king’s coronation would be “shorter, smaller and less expensive” than Queen Elizabeth’s 1953 ceremony.

The source told the newspaper: “The King is well aware of the struggles that contemporary Britons feel, so he will see his wishes carried through, although his coronation must remain true and faithful to the well-established traditions of the past, it must also be representative.” Property in a modern world.

The date of the concert has not yet been announced, but May and June 2023 are two possibilities.

The newspaper was also told that Charles “has long been an advocate of a simplified or watered-down monarchy” and may reduce the number of working royals.

The royal source added: “He has already spoken of his desire to continue his mother’s legacy and this includes continuing to learn about what people are going through day in and day out.”

The move has strong public support, according to a survey by the Daily Express.

About 65 percent of survey respondents supported the idea, while only 7 percent opposed it.

The death of Queen Elizabeth represents a major transitional moment for members of the British royal family as they take on new roles, titles and responsibilities.

The Express reported that the number of working royals could be reduced to seven, which it said were likely to be the King and his wife Camilla, Prince William, Kate, Princess Anne, Prince Edward and Sophie.

The newspaper’s survey of 2,351 Britons also found that lowering the cost of ownership was the second largest property priority for the public, after providing support for environmental issues.

Charles is believed to have traveled to Scotland on Tuesday with Camilla to mourn in private, as the royal family continues their period of mourning for the late king.

Charles decreed on September 9, the day after the Queen died after her 70-year reign, that a period of mourning would be observed until seven days after the funeral.

Plans for his first diplomatic trip outside the UK as king focus more on France than on the Commonwealth of Nations, according to a report in the Daily Telegraph.

The newspaper reported that no plan had been finalized, but wrote that a trip across the canal was seen as an opportunity to build relations with Europe.

The Queen was buried with the Duke of Edinburgh on Monday evening at a private mass attended by the King and the royal family, which followed her state funeral at Westminster Abbey and a commissioning service in Windsor.

Buckingham Palace said the inscription on the ledger stone at George VI Memorial Chapel now contains the names of the Queen, her parents and Philip, along with their years of birth and death.

The stone contains, in list form, ‘George VI 1895-1952’ and ‘Elizabeth 1900-2002’ followed by the metal Garter Star, then ‘Elizabeth II 1926-2022’ and ‘Philip 1921-2021’.
