Since the coronation of William I in 1066, 40 of Charles’ predecessors have been crowned at Westminster Abbey. The last coronation ceremony of Queen Elizabeth was held here in 1953. According to Reuters, the coronation ceremony of Charles III was a combination of modern British customs with a thousand-year-old custom. The nature of Abhishek ceremony has changed over the ages in accordance with the tradition. Charles would protect Christianity as well as other religions.

Indian-origin British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak spoke about the grand inauguration ceremony. He said, ‘No other country has been able to stage such a grand display – royal processions, ceremonies, ceremonies and street parties. It is a proud expression of our history, culture and heritage. A vivid display of our modern character. It is a cherished ritual, through which a new age is born.’

Some irony has also been seen in the grandeur of Abhishek. The anti-monarchy group Republic protested the event. Six activists, including the group’s CEO Graham Smith, were arrested by police during a protest in London’s Trafalgar Square. Demonstrators wore genjis that read ‘My King is not’. Human rights organization Human Rights Watch has condemned these arrests. They said, ‘People are arrested in this way in Moscow. Don’t expect it in London.’ Yasmin Ahmed, UK director of Human Rights Watch, said the arrest of people for peaceful protests against Abhishek’s inauguration is very disturbing.

He also holds the previous title of Duke of Cambridge. He is now number one in the line of succession to the British throne. His wife is Catherine Princess of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and Duchess of Cambridge. They have three children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louise.
