Sunday Mail: Charles III wanted to break the tradition of the coronation and quarreled with the Church of England

King Britain Charles III fell out with the Church of England over its desire to break the tradition of the coronation ceremony of British monarchs. On this subject informed Mail Sunday, citing sources.

Charles III insists that representatives of different religions be present at the ceremony. He expressed his desire to be an “advocate” of not just one particular religion, but all others, 30 years ago, the newspaper writes. It should be noted that we are talking about changing the meaning of the title “Defender of the Faith”, which was worn by all British monarchs, starting with Henry VIII.

The monarch was warned that his desire “risks centuries of canon law which prohibits Muslim, Hindu, Jewish and other religious leaders from saying prayers during services”, the newspaper said.

Charles III became King of Great Britain after the death of his mother, Elizabeth II. The current monarch has been waiting for the opportunity to ascend the throne for almost 70 years – longer than any other heir in the country’s history.

The official coronation ceremony of the new sovereign of Great Britain Charles III will pass May 6, 2023.
