KING CHARLES’ WIFE RECEIVES QUEEN CAMILLA TITLE ON CORONATION INVITATION, PRINCE GEORGE GIVEN SPECIAL ROLE
Charlotte’s birthday falls on the same week that her grandfather, King Charles III, will be crowned in his historic coronation ceremony on Saturday.
Although Charlotte and her younger brother, Prince Louis, will not have official roles in the ceremony, her father and older brother, Prince George, will honor Charles in traditional roles.
William not only has an official role, but he will be the only royal family member to speak during the service.
According to the liturgy of the service, about halfway through the ceremony, William will kneel before his father, place his hands between his and recite: “I, William, Prince of Wales, pledge my loyalty to you and faith and truth I will bear unto you, as your liege man of life and limb. So help me God.”
William is the only member of the royal family who will honor Charles in this way during the coronation service.
He will also appear as the Stole Royal and the Robe Royal are presented to the king. William will assist both the Baroness Merron and the bishops in placing the robe on Charles.
