In a few short weeks, Canadians will witness the historic Coronation of their new monarch, His Majesty King Charles III. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that a special ceremony will be held in Ottawa on May 6, 2023.
This ceremony will celebrate His Majesty’s reign as King of Canada and his enduring relationship with the country over the past half-century. The event promises to be a grand affair, complete with speeches, artistic performances, and unveilings.
“His Majesty has a long history and a special relationship with Canada, and we look forward to celebrating his Coronation in May,” said Justin Trudeau.
Guests from the Table of Precedence of Canada, including members of the King’s Privy Council for Canada, and notable Canadians will attend the event. Individuals with strong connections to causes close to His Majesty’s heart will also be in attendance.
Meanwhile, the Coronation Service for King Charles III in the United Kingdom will take place at Westminster Abbey in London on the same day. It’s followed by a series of public events on May 7 & 8, including a special Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle.
The Canadian delegation that’ll attend the UK ceremony will be announced shortly. Canadians everywhere will be invited to join in the festivities on May 6 & 7, as communities from coast to coast celebrate the Coronation of their new King.
Additionally, Rideau Hall will host activities where visitors can learn more about the Canadian Crown and visit the residence of the Governor General.
“In addition to the ceremony in Ottawa, I invite Canadians to take part in events and activities that will take place in their communities to mark this important occasion,” added Trudeau.
This will be a grand occasion for Canada, as it welcomes a new monarch and enters a new chapter in its history. The coronation of King Charles III promises to be a joyous event for all Canadians, celebrating both the country’s past and bright future.
“Together, we look to the future and the continued betterment of the Commonwealth and its people,” stated the Prime Minister.
