Buckingham Palace announced the news, adding that the coronation will take place at Westminster Abbey and will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Queen Consort will also be crowned alongside her husband.
There is already much excitement surrounding the historic event – and a surprising debate is taking centre stage.
There have now been calls for a change to the May bank holiday in order to mark the special occasion.
Following the announcement, the Daily Mail reports a number of MPs have called for the 1 May bank holiday to be pushed back until Monday 8 May to give the country a long weekend.
Conservative former Cabinet minister David Jones told the paper: “To combine the two events would be welcomed by the entire nation. It would make a very special memory for all of us.”
His comments were echoed by former Labour frontbencher Khalid Mahmood, who said: “We can move the holiday back to the coronation weekend.
“We have a unique system with the monarchy and an independent parliament – I would back Britons having a three-day weekend to mark the occasion.”
Buckingham Palace has said the ceremony will be “rooted in longstanding traditions and pageantry” but also “reflect the monarch’s role today and look towards the future”.
Charles III will be anointed with holy oil, and receive the orb, coronation ring and sceptre, before being crowned with the majestic St Edward’s Crown and blessed during the historic ceremony.
Camilla will also be anointed with holy oil and crowned, just like the Queen Mother was when she was crowned Queen in 1937.
