Kate and William’s children will have an unprecedented role in the coronation of Charles III: but what will happen to the other grandchildren of the kings?

The Prince and Princess of Wales will have three children an unprecedented role in the coronation ceremony of King Charles III. As reveals the timesPrince Georgesecond in line to the British throne, and her siblings Princess Charlotte and the Prince Louiswill take part in the procession which will leave Westminster Abbey, after the coronation of their grandfather and Queen Camilla.

While Kensington Palace has not confirmed their presence, evidence documents from the ceremony were accessed by the times say the three boys will travel alongside their parents, Prince William and Princess Kate, in the carriage that will follow King Charles and Queen Camilla, who will travel in the Gold Carriage of State once used by Elizabeth II.

In addition to the family of the Prince and Princess of Wales, Princess Anne and her husband, Sir Tim Laurence, will take part in the procession in two other carriages; the new Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh; the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester; the Duke of Kent and his sister Princess Alexandra. By contrast, neither Prince Harry and Meghan Markle nor Andrew of York will show in London. They won’t even parade there Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice of Yorkas they are not official members of the royal family.

While Prince George’s presence at the ceremony seemed certain, it was unknown until now whether or not Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, who is only four, would attend.

In 1953, Charles III he was the same age as Louis when he attended the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, but did not take part in the procession or play any part in the ceremony.

Prince Louis was not present at Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, but his brothers were, making them the youngest Windsors to attend such a ceremony. Now the question is whether Queen Camilla’s five grandchildren will also play a role in the coronationwhich the documents to which the times had access do not disclose for the moment.

As the times revealed a few weeks ago, Camilla has expressed the desire for them to hold the canopy which traditionally covers consorts as they are consecrated queens by the Archbishop of Canterbury. It would be about an unprecedented decisionsince until now it has always been a group of duchesses who have filled this role.

Another unknown is that of Harry and Meghan’s children, Archie and Lilibet, which, like the duke and duchess of Sussex themselves, it is not yet known whether they will participate or not. In the event that they were to participate and the grandchildren of Queen Camilla fill the aforementioned role, it will be strange that a special role is not reserved for them, especially considering that they are now princes and that Coronation Day coincides with Archie’s birthday.
