Everything on King Charles III’s Scotland Coronation

Check out the highlights of King Charles III’s Scottish coronation


It’s the reign of a new ruler. King Charles III succeeds the late Queen Elizabeth II, who is the longest-serving monarch and queen mother of Great Britain. Last May 2023, we were witnesses to the crowning ceremony of King Charles III and his wife Queen Camilla at the historic halls of Westminster Abbey in London, England.





Charles’ latest coronation in Scotland, however, which happened on July 5, was celebratory and is a rather symbolic run of traditional rites and thanksgiving activities.


The King and Queen’s arrival was marked with a royal procession full of pageantry and a solemn religious service at St. Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh, where Charles was presented with the Honours of Scotland. The Scottish paraphernalia includes a scepter, a sword of state, and a classic crown dating back to the 1500s.


Down the Royal Mile, an important march was held to mirror a similar function in 1953, when Queen Elizabeth II flew to the Scottish region to recognize Scotland’s place within the United Kingdom.






Prayers and songs were as well served during the coronation day. The sounding of the 21-gun salute from the 12th Regiment Royal Artillery, a timeless tradition, transpired toward the end of the event, too. Prince William and Princess Kate of Wales, meanwhile, traveled to the country to attend the celebration.





The couple were also in attendance at the ceremony as they hold the titles of Duke and Duchess of Rothesay. Rothesay is the largest town located on the Isle of Bute in Scotland.
