On Saturday, Charles III will be crowned king in a Christian ceremony that has been a part of British tradition for over 1,000 years.

The coronation will take place at Westminster Abbey and will be the first coronation of a British monarch since 1953.

The ceremony will include the use of the St Edward’s Crown, a solid gold symbol of the monarch’s authority that is only used once in their reign.

The coronation will also feature trumpet fanfares, gun salutes, and a military parade. Charles and his wife Camilla, who will be crowned queen, will return to Buckingham Palace in a horse-drawn Gold State Coach.

The coronation will be the first of a king since 1937, the second to be televised, and the first to be streamed online.

The service will be led by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and will include women bishops for the first time.

Charles has sought to make the ceremony more reflective of British society by inviting ordinary members of the public to sit alongside heads of state and global royalty.

The coronation will also feature seasonal flowers and foliage from across the country, and all the flowers will be donated to charities helping the elderly and vulnerable.

The coronation has been met with some criticism, with calls for the monarchy to be modernized or even scrapped altogether.

However, the huge crowds of royal fans that have been building all week outside Buckingham Palace indicate that the royals still have a central role in British culture and history.
