 Charles III officially crowned king — here’s what to know about him

Charles III has been crowned king of England.

The coronation is a traditional ceremony that has been held in Westminster Abbey for centuries, dating back to the 10th century.

During the ceremony, the new monarch is anointed with holy oil, crowned with the St. Edward’s Crown, and presented with other symbols of power and authority, including the Sceptre and the Orb.

On Saturday, the king and his wife, the queen, were officially crowned at London’s Westminster Abbey. The coronation is the first one in England in the last 70 years.

“I swear to govern the people with justice and mercy, and to uphold the Anglican Church of England and the Presbyterian Church of Scotland,” the King said while taking oath at Westminster Abbey.


King Charles III is the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. He was born on November 14, 1948, and has held the title of Prince of Wales since 1958.

Charles is known for his active involvement in a wide range of philanthropic causes, particularly in the areas of the environment, architecture, and health. He has also been a vocal advocate for organic farming and sustainable agriculture.

As a member of the royal family, King Charles III will have ceremonial and constitutional duties, including representing the United Kingdom at official events and ceremonies and serving as a symbol of national unity.

It is worth noting that the reign of King Charles III will likely differ from that of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, as he has indicated his desire to take a more active role in public affairs and potentially be more vocal on certain issues.

However, the exact nature of his reign and the impact he will have on the British monarchy remains to be seen.
