Prince George is scheduled to attend King Charles III’s coronation.
According to Roya Nikkhah, the royal editor of The Sunday Times, Prince George will one day have his own coronation and is expected to play a “major” part in the inauguration of his grandpa, King Charles III.
This would be a departure from royal custom, which is for the young heirs to see the event but not participate. In 1953, neither King Charles nor Queen Elizabeth II participated in the ceremony; similarly, the Queen merely observed the coronation of her father, King George VI.
Prince William and Princess Kate will be introduced to Charles and Camilla in order to discuss how the young royal will be incorporated into the event.

Prince George will be able to participate in the service because it will be on a Saturday and he won’t have school on that day.
The Sunday Times said that Camilla’s own grandchildren will hold a canopy over the Queen Consort while she is anointed with holy oil, confirming their participation in the ceremony.
As the big day approaches, more information regarding the coronation is being released, including how Charles will tenderly remember his late father, Prince Philip.
Charles personally requested the inclusion of Greek Orthodox music, which will be performed by the Byzantine Chant Ensemble, for the ceremony, which will include a number of new works to celebrate the occasion.
Philip was born in Greece as a member of the Greek and Danish royal dynasties and tragically passed suddenly in 2021. He was baptised in St. George’s Church in Corfu and brought up as a Greek Orthodox Christian.
It has already been confirmed that Charles would throw his first garden party as a monarch on the Tuesday after the service.
Guests have already started getting their invitations for the coveted event, which will take place on Tuesday, May 9.
The coronavirus pandemic forced the cancellation of parties in 2020 and 2021, while the late Queen was unable to attend the 2022 celebrations due to her health. They will also be the first garden parties with a reigning monarch since 2019!
In the summer months, garden parties are frequently held in the grounds of Holyroodhouse in Scotland or Buckingham Palace in London.
