British Officials Finally Released a Date for King Charles III's Coronation

On Wednesday, U.K. officials announced that Charles is expected to officially be crowned on June 3, 2023.

The big event will take place nearly 70 years exactly after his mother Queen Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953.

It will mark the official beginning of his reign though he technically inherited the throne last month after Queen Elizabeth's death.

Charles will be 74, making him the oldest person to be coronated in British History.

Now that Charles has acceded the throne, his family members have also received promotions in their titles.

His wife Camila is now queen consort

His son — and the next in line — Prince William's wife Kate Middleton, has added Princess of Wales to her slate.
