One of the biggest royal events of 2023 will be King Charles’s coronation on May 6, 2023. On the first Saturday in May, King Charles III will be crowned alongside Camilla, Queen Consort in a ceremony at Westminster Abbey conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Royalty from around the world is expected to be in attendance. Here’s who has confirmed their attendance at the coronation thus far:

British royals

Though Buckingham Palace has not officially confirmed the list of royals who will be at coronation, likely, the entirety of the British royal family will be there. That includes Charles’s three siblings, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward, along with his son, Prince William, and daughter-in-law Catherine, Princess of Wales.

Prince Harry will attend, but Meghan, Duchess of Sussex will not. The Palace said in mid-April they are “pleased to confirm that The Duke of Sussex will attend the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey on May 6th. The Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.”


Prince Albert and Princess Charlene were the first foreign royals to say they will be at the coronation. Albert told People, “I’m certain that it’s going to be an incredible ceremony and a very moving one. We’ve maintained contact since His Majesty became King, but I haven’t talked to him personally since the Queen’s funeral. I’m certain His Majesty will add his own ‘personal touches’ to the ceremonies. But what those will be, I’m sure I don’t know.”


Japan’s Crown Prince Akishino and Crown Princess Kiko will attend the coronation, the Imperial Household confirmed in early April. The Prince and Princess will stay at Claridge’s, a luxury hotel in Mayfair. King Charles attended Akishino’s father Emperor Naruhito’s enthronement ceremony when he ascended to the Chrysanthemum Throne in 2019, and when Emperor Akihito ascended to the throne in 1990.


Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary will represent the Danish royal family at King Charles’s coronation. Queen Margrethe, who was close with the late Queen Elizabeth, will not attend.


King Carl XVI Gustaf and his daughter, Crown Princess Victoria, will attend the coronation on behalf of Swedish royals.


King Felipe and Queen Letizia will be in attendance on behalf of the Spanish royal family.


Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit confirmed they will be going.


Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa will be at the coronation of Charles and Camilla. It follows a big week for them—their daughter, Princess Alexandra, just got married.


Members of the former Greek royal family—Queen Anne-Marie and Crown Prince Pavlos—will reportedly be at the coronation. To celebrate, Princess Marie-Chantal’s eponymous brand even launched special coronation merch.


King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima will attend the coronation on behalf of the Netherlands. At the reception at Buckingham Palace the night before, Princess Catharina-Amalia and Princess Beatrix will represent the Dutch royals.

New Zealand / Aotearoa

King Tuheitia and his wife, Makau Ariki Atawhai, will attend the coronation with the New Zealand delegation. “Our respective monarchies are enduring institutions that share a common commitment to stability and continuity and unity for all peoples,” Kingitanga (the Māori King Movement) chief of staff Archdeacon Ngira Simmonds said. “The Kingitanga will continue to hold the Crown accountable for its role as a partner to Te Tiriti o Waitangi.” (The Te Tiriti o Waitangi is New Zealand’s founding treaty, an agreement between Māori chiefs and the British Crown. And, Aotearoa is the Māori language name for New Zealand.)


King Philippe and Queen Mathilde will be at the coronation, and at the Palace reception on May 5, King Philippe will be joined by his daughter, Princess Elisabeth.


Bhutan’s King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and Queen Jetsun Pema will attend the coronation.


Though there is no longer a monarchy in Serbia, Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine of Serbia will be attending the coronation.


The same goes for Romania: Though there’s no monarchy, Margareta, the Custodian of the Crown of Romania, and her husband, Prince Radu of Romania, will be in attendance.


King Vajiralongkorn and Queen Suthida will be in attendance at the coronation. Thailand is one of the few other monarchies around the world that still have coronations; King Vajiralongkorn’s coronation took place in 2019.


Tongan monarchs, King Tupou VI and Queen Nanasipau’u, will attend King Charles’s coronation. At Tupou’s coronation in 2015, Princess Anne attended on behalf of Queen Elizabeth. And, at Queen Elizabeth’s coronation in 1953, Tonga’s Queen Sālote Tupou III attended.


Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, and his wife, Lady Julia, will attend the coronation, Manhyia Palace confirmed. Osei Tutu II is the Asantehene (the title for monarch, or king) of the Ashanti people.


Liechtenstein’s Hereditary Prince Alois and Hereditary Princess Sophie will go to the coronation.


The Jordanian royals King Abdullah II and Queen Rania will be at Westminster Abbey for King Charles’s coronation.


The Malaysian royals, Yang di-Pertuan Agong and Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku, will make the trip to attend the coronation. “Their Majesties have also consented to attend the reception ceremony, which will be hosted by His Majesty King Charles III at Buckingham Palace on May 5,” Wisma Putra said in a statement just days before.


Bahrain’s King Hamad will attend the coronation—he was also at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth.


The oldest crown prince in the world, Kuwait’s Prince Mishal AL-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, will be at Westminster Abbey for the coronation.


King Mswati III, one of the last absolute monarchs in the world, will attend. Eswanti is one of few countries besides the UK to have a coronation, and Mswanti III’s coronation took place at Somhlolo National Stadium in 1986.


King Letsie III and Queen Masenate will attend the coronation. Another country that still has a coronation is Lesotho—and King Charles was in attendance at King Letsie III’s crowning ceremony at Maseru Sports Stadium in 1997.

Saudi Arabia

Prince Turki bin Muhammad Al Saud, a member of the Saudi royal family, will attend the coronation.

Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the Emir of Qatar, will be in attendance.

Princess Lalla Meryem, the daughter of the late King Hassan II and brother of King Mohammed VI, will be in attendance.


Those are the names of the Royals and Heads of State who attended Charles’ Coronation.  Do you seriously think that all of those people attended because they LIKE Charles?  Or, because they support his Coronation?    IF you have any doubts, watch what happens during the Coronation when Charles passes by them in processional.   Hardly anyone bowed or even shiled as he passed. Very Few people even seemed to acknowledge him.
