The eagerly anticipated second coronation of King Charles III is set to take place on 5th July in Edinburgh, Scotland. Royal enthusiasts wonder if the attendance of Princess of Wales and William, the Prince and Princess of Wales, is on the horizon.
It’s an exciting time once again as the Scottish Government recently announced that King Charles III will be crowned for the second time in the magnificent city of Edinburgh. Following a successful ceremony at Westminster Abbey in London, preparations are underway for this grand occasion. Scottish First Minister Humza Yousaf shared, “Scotland will warmly welcome the new King and Queen in July, and a series of events have been planned to commemorate the coronation.” The festivities will include a popular procession, a royal procession, a national thanksgiving service, and a remarkable gun salute.
In the midst of these historic events, various Scottish communities and organizations will participate. For those eager to celebrate, they can either watch the televised broadcast or attend the events in person, as stated by the 38-year-old politician. As for Prince William and Princess of Wales, our sources reveal that the Prince and Princess of Wales, also known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay by the Scots, will indeed grace the occasion with their presence. This sheds light on their recently announced trip to the Scottish capital, as noted in their summer diary. However, the plans regarding the attendance of their three children, George, Charlotte, and Louis, remain undisclosed, adding an air of mystery.

During this significant coronation in Edinburgh, the late Elizabeth II’s son will receive the crown of King James V of Scotland, which will be placed atop his head. Adorned with a sceptre and sword of state, King Charles III will be surrounded by a popular procession featuring approximately one hundred individuals symbolizing various aspects of Scottish life.
The government’s press release highlights the majestic involvement of the Royal Regiment of Scotland, accompanied by their beloved mascot, Corporal Cruachan IV, an adorable Shetland pony known for his delightful interaction with the Duke of Sussex and Meghan Markle during their visit to Edinburgh in 2018. Concluding the church service, a resounding 21-gun salute will echo from Edinburgh Castle, followed by the royal procession marching towards the Palace of Holyroodhouse, where a magnificent Royal Air Force flypast will grace the skies. A truly remarkable program awaits!
