King Charles wants slimmed down coronation on anniversary of Queens crowning

King Charles III wants a "slimmed down coronation" next year on his mother's coronation anniversary.

The eldest child of the Queen is set to be coronated next year and could choose the date of Friday 2 June.

According to MailOnline, sources have said that the service will most likely be "shorter, smaller and less expensive" than the late Queen's in 1953. However, the service will also celebrate her life.

Although the Queen succeeded to the throne on Wednesday 6 February 1952 after the death of her father King George VI, her coronation occurred the following year.

Therefore, King Charles III's service could take place on the 70th anniversary of his mother's coronation.

The Queen's funeral occurred on Monday 19 September at Westminster Abbey.

Many prime minsters, presidents and royals attended the 2000-guest ceremony, as The Queen was then laid to rest beside her husband at St George's Chapel in Windsor.

Queen Elizabeth II died on Thursday 8 September at the age of 96 at Balmoral in Scotland.

After stating earlier that doctors were concerned about Her Majesty's health, Buckingham Palace announced: "The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow."

King Charles III said in a statement: "The death of my beloved mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family.

"We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished Sovereign and a much-loved mother.

"I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.

"During this period of mourning and change, my family and I will be comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which The Queen was so widely held."

Addressing the nation for the first time as King, he then said: "It will no longer be possible for me to give so much of my time and energies to the charities and issues for which I care so deeply.

"But I know this important work will go on in the trusted hands of others."
