Charles, the 'oldest fairy' in British history, officially becomes King with his coronation. In this context, the coronation route and emoji of King Charles III of England were announced. King Charles will go to his coronation in the newest carriage, returning in a 260-year-old carriage. King Charles will wear the 2,868-stone Imperial Crown at the parade, as the crown worn during the coronation is forbidden to be taken outside the cathedral.
According to the news in Anadolu, the route of the parade to be held before and after the coronation ceremony of King Charles III of England, which will take place on May 6, and the emoji specially designed for that day have been announced.
According to the statement made by Buckingham Palace, King Charles will set off from the palace to Westminster Cathedral in the Diamond Jubilee Carriage, the newest carriage of the royal, on the day of his coronation.
The ceremonial guard, which will cross The Mall Street between the palace and Trafalgar Square, with the phaeton that Queen Elizabeth used to go to the opening of the parliament for the first time in 2014, will turn to Whitehall Street, where the Prime Minister's Office is located on Number 10.
After passing Whitehall, the parade guard will reach Parliament Square, where Westminster Cathedral and the British Parliament are located, and after a walk of about 2 kilometers, King Charles will enter the cathedral to be crowned.
At the ceremony, King Charles will be crowned St. Edward. Since it is forbidden to take the crown, which weighs about 2.5 kilograms, outside the cathedral, another crown will come into play at the next point.
The holy oil that will be used to bless the King at the religiously crucial moment of the coronation will be poured from the eagle-shaped oiler into the coronation spoon.
After the coronation, officials carrying the sharp sword, representing power and responsibility, and the blunt-edged sword, representing mercy, will march in front of King Charles. The king will wear a sword symbolizing chivalry.
The King, who will wear the ring bearing the St. George's cross, will walk in the post-coronation parade carrying a scepter and an orb representing religious power.
King Charles will wear the Imperial Crown decorated with 2,868 diamonds, 17 sapphires, 11 emeralds and 269 pearls in 1937 for his grandfather, George VI, while Queen Camilla will wear the Queen Mary crown made in 1911.
After the ceremony, which will start at 11:00 am, King Charles will return to the palace this time with the 260-year-old Golden Carriage.
Unlike Queen Elizabeth's coronation, King Charles will return to the palace the way he came. The parade on the way back will be more crowded than on the way back.
On the other hand, a special emoji for the coronation of King Charles was also designed. As of today, the emoji that will be used on Twitter was inspired by the Crown of St. Edward.
While the emoji was being prepared for a coronation for the first time, it was previously designed for Queen Elizabeth's 70th year on the throne. In this emoji, the Queen's favorite dog breed, the corgi, was depicted with a crown on its head.
