- The 2023 coronation of King Charles III will take place over three days from 6 - 8 May.
- The royal family has launched a new website, breaking down the formalities and celebrations.
- "The coronation is centred around a solemn religious ceremony and has remained largely unchanged for over a thousand years," reads the new coronation site.
This week marks 71 years since Queen Elizabeth took the throne, and members of the royal family are said to have spent the specific day – Monday, 6 February this year – privately in quiet reflection, according to People.
Plans for the king's coronation in May, however, are in full swing, with the launch of a new royal website detailing the formalities and celebrations for the momentous occasion, to take place over three days from 6 - 8 May.
"The coronation is centred around a solemn religious ceremony and has remained largely unchanged for over a thousand years," reads the new coronation website. "For the last 900 years, the ceremony has taken place at Westminster Abbey, London and is conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury."
Charles' formal crowning at London's Westminster Abbey will take place on Saturday, 6 May, followed by a concert the following day as well as "coronation big lunches" to be hosted across the country. The celebrations will conclude Monday with volunteer work.
Saturday, 6 May: The Coronation Ceremony takes place at Westminster Abbey, London.
6-8 May: Coronation Big Lunches throughout the country and across the Commonwealth.
Sunday, 7 May: A spectacular coronation concert will be performed at Windsor Castle, with iconic locations across the UK lit up using projections, lasers, drone displays and illuminations.
Monday, 8 May: A special bank holiday has been proclaimed by the prime minister in honour of the coronation, allowing everyone to join in with their communities and good causes through Big Help Out activities.
Members of the firm will join in on the celebrations in the UK, though it is unclear whether Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will fly in from the US as the palace continues to grapple with the fallout from the Duke of Sussex's bombshell memoir, Spare.
In Harry's memoir, he's made a series of incendiary claims against the family.
A recent report, however, claims a reconciliation could still take place before King Charles' coronation.
