King Charles and Queen Camilla set to break records at the coronation

The approaching coronation is expected to break records for King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla.

First of all, Charles and Camilla will become the oldest King and Queen Consort in British history on May 6 when they are formally crowned.

According to Sky History, King William IV, who gained the throne in 1830 at the age of 64, now holds the record for the oldest crowned king. Charles will undoubtedly surpass this record for oldest crowned king because he is 74 years old.

Similar to how Queen Alexandra was crowned as Queen Consort in 1902 at the age of 58, Camilla will undoubtedly surpass this milestone at the age of 75.

There are other records that will be broken as well.

In actuality, Queen Elizabeth II’s 1953 coronation was the last; Charles and Camilla’s will be the first of the twenty-first century (the 20th century)

Charles has a habit of setting records; in 2011, he held the record for the longest tenure as the heir apparent in British history. King Edward VII, Charles’ great-great-grandfather, who served as the heir apparent from 1841 to 1901, had previously held the record for that.

As of 2017, Charles was also the Prince of Wales with the longest tenure. Again, Edward VII previously held this record, as he had the title of Prince of Wales for more than 59 years.
