On May 6, more than 2,000 people will attend the coronation of King Charles III of the United Kingdom, which will take place at Westminster Abbey in London. On Tuesday, Buckingham Palace revealed what the invitation card looks like for the important event, revealing what will be Camilla’s new title, who she is, so far, Queen Consort.
“Coronation of His Majesty King Carlos III and Queen Camilla. By order of the King, the Earl Marshall has the pleasure to invite…” reads the card, designed by heraldry artist and manuscript illustrator Andrew Jamieson.
The word “consort” thus officially disappears to refer to Camilla as the new queen.

But the surprises of the coronation do not end there, as on the 6th of next May, London will become a big party full of activities, a date that contradicts tradition, as many expected that the new coronation would take place in June, the month in the first month.

Among them there will be a tribute to his father, Philip of Edinburgh, which is why you will hear Greek Orthodox music.
