King Charles’ Coronation – Public Invited to Swear Allegiance

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

All persons of goodwill in the United Kingdom of Great Britain, Northern Ireland, and of other realms and territories will be invited to swear aloud their allegiance to the new monarch, King Charles III, in a “chorus of millions of voices” to be known as the Homage of the People. The introduction of the new oath is one of the changes to the centuries-old coronation ceremony, which the palace wants to evolve, particularly to reflect the country’s diversity. Saturday’s service will also involve for the first time the active participation of representatives of faiths other than Christianity.  Female clergy will also play a prominent role, and the King himself will pray out loud.
