Though officials remain tight-lipped about Operation Golden Orb – King Charles III's coronation – it is expected to take place next year, with many speculating it may well be during the month of June.
The event could take place on the monarch's ceremonial birthday – traditionally the second Saturday of the month, 10 June 2023 next year – or, in honour of Queen Elizabeth, exactly 70 years after she was crowned queen – on 2 June 2023.
Court documents in a case against Edward Fitzalan-Howard, the duke of Norfolk, confirmed the ceremony will take place next year. Fitzalan-Howard, the highest-ranking duke in England who also holds the title the Earl Marshal, is organising the king's coronation – he also organised the queen's funeral, which took some 20 years of planning.
Although he may suffer "exceptional hardship," he said, following a driving ban after he was found using his cellphone behind the wheel.
Charles will wear St Edward's Crown – the centrepiece of the Crown Jewels – when he becomes king following the ceremony, likely to take place at Westminster Abbey, and becomes Britain's 40th monarch.
