Britain’s King Charles III Marks First Anniversary of his Coronation


May 7, 2024

Britain’s King Charles III today marked the first anniversary of his coronation.

The 75-year-old monarch, who has had a difficult year that has seen a cancer diagnosis and continuing tensions with his estranged son Prince Harry, was also reportedly keen to mark the day with minimal “fuss” given the link between his accession and the death of his mother Queen Elizabeth II.

No official events, however, were planned with the milestone coming less than a week after King Charles resumed public duties since his diagnosis of an undisclosed type of cancer. 

Following 41-gun salute rang out from Green Park next to Buckingham Palace at noon, followed an hour later with 62 volleys fired from another central London location.
