Instead of a precious tiara: Kate Middleton plans to appear in a floral wreath at Charles III's coronation
This Saturday, May 6, the UK will host the official coronation of Charles III, who abdicated after the death of his mother Elizabeth II. On this day, Kate Middleton may break the centuries-old tradition of the royal family by not wearing a tiara to the ceremony.
Instead, the Princess of Wales is expected to wear a flower wreath on her head. The Times writes about it.
It is not known exactly why Prince William's wife decided to abandon the precious jewellery at the most spectacular royal event in the last 70 years in favour of a floral headdress. However, a number of experts suggest that this is due to the royal family's desire to modernise their own rules.
"Given that Charles wants a modern coronation, it would make sense that he would choose a dress code that does not include a tiara for the official day," commented royal historian Jessica Storoschuk.
The possible flower wreath on Middleton's head is being called a bold and innovative gesture. It may disappoint traditionalists who expect to see the best display of royal jewellery in a generation, but the Prince and Princess of Wales are the new generation of the British monarchy, and they are definitely ready for such "reforms".
Earlier, OBOZREVATEL reported that the coronation of Charles III will take place on May 6, 2023. The ceremony will traditionally take place at Westminster Abbey in London, and the service will be conducted by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby. The coronation celebrations will last three days, so the British will have an extra day off on Monday, May 8. All the details are in our article.
