William, Prince of Wales and his wife Kate Middleton could revolutionize one of the cornerstones of the British monarchy once William ascends to the throne. King Charles III, in fact, could be the last British sovereign to have had a coronation with great pomp.

Ingrid Seward, author of the book Prince Philip revelead, William will not want a sumptuous ceremony like his father's. "I think it's because they don't want to put the costs on their subjects. They'll probably think it's not a good thing.

I don't think we'll ever see another big coronation again. A lot of people don't understand all these rituals. There will probably be a very small coronation," she explained.

According to the British media (which are calling, especially the Guardian, for the King's abdication) William could choose a simpler ceremony, as the Nordic sovereigns do.

The abdication of Queen Margrethe of Denmark will not include a coronation ceremony for her son Frederik's accession to the throne at Amalienborg Castle (14 January 2024 ed.) and William could follow their example. King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden and King Harald V of Norway both ascended the throne in 1973, they could be the next to abdicate and even in these two countries there are no coronation ceremonies planned.

King Charles may soon abdicate?

King Charles may soon abdicate in favor of Prince William, as Queen Margrethe II of Denmark recently did. In this way, explain various sources from both Buckingham Palace and the British media, William and Kate could ascend to the throne when young and guarantee greater security and contemporaneity to the English monarchy.

Downing Street, through the Department for Digital, Culture and Media, has entrusted the statistical consultation to Verian pollsters for the popularity of members of the royal family. But what does the survey ask? The selected people will not only be asked to express their opinion on the role of the monarchy. "What role do you think the monarchy should have in the UK?”
