Glamsquad reports that “On May 6, 2023, the Abbey Church of Westminster will host one of the most momentous events in the history of the British monarchy as the royal family of England confirms the date for the coronation of King Charles III and Queen Consort.
The official invitation for the ceremony was revealed via the royal family’s Instagram page, where the announcement was made.
Heraldic artist and manuscript illuminator, Andrew Jamieson designed the invitation with the motif of the Green Man, an age-old figure from British folklore representing spring and rebirth, to commemorate the new reign.
The invitation’s exceptional design incorporates various symbolic elements of the UK and the royal family, featuring the Majesties’ arms, emblematic flowers of the UK, and a wildflower meadow with British wildlife.
The design was hand-painted in watercolour and gouache and will be reproduced and printed on recycled cards, with gold foil detailing, for the 2,000 guests.
The forthcoming coronation of the King and Queen Consort is poised to be a momentous occasion in the annals of the British monarchy.
King Charles III acceded to the British throne after his mother, Queen Elizabeth, Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, and the nation’s figurehead for seven decades passed away at her home in Scotland on Thursday afternoon, 8th September 2022 aged 96.
