Not even a month had passed since the coronation of Charles III, as William, the first in line heir to the throne, began to think about how his triumph should go.
Insiders immediately rushed to share the prince’s thoughts with the press. For example, William believes that the ceremony should “look and feel different”, be more modern and in line with the spirit of the times.
This is probably about the rejection of the part where the people swear allegiance to the monarch.
At the insistence of Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, during the coronation of Charles, not only those present offline, but also viewers had to swear allegiance to the king and heirs.
To many, such an initiative seemed rather outdated and even offensive. Because the country is democratic, and the leader himself must swear allegiance to the people.
“William would never do anything like that. He is aware of the fact that in 20 years or when his time comes, the coronation should not only become relevant for the world, but also unite the nation and the countries of the Commonwealth,” he Daily Mirror source quotes.
Meanwhile, supporters of the monarchy fear that the ceremony will be updated too radically.
However, Charles III also neglected some centuries-old traditions at his coronation, and he was even praised for this.
