What is happening this Coronation Weekend 2023?

Celebrating the Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla

This weekend, the nation and the Commonwealth shall be celebrating the coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort. Here at Radfield Home Care, we believe that it is important to recognise the role of the monarch in our society and to recognise the hard work and dedication of all care professionals.

What is the Coronation Weekend?

The Coronation Weekend marks the formal crowning of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort. It will take place on Saturday, May 6 2023 in Westminster Abbey, with further events taking place throughout the long weekend. This will be a chance for us all to celebrate this historic event, and to pay tribute to His Majesty King Charles as he formally takes on his new role as King.

Commemorating His Majesty King Charles III

King Charles has devoted his life to service, having served in both military and civil roles since childhood. For many decades, he has been an advocate for a variety of worthy causes, from environmental conservation and sustainability to humanitarian aid and international development. He also has a deep love for nature which has been memorialised in the crest for the coronation which features natural elements in its design.

King Charles and the UK Care Sector

King Charles has shown great empathy for the care sector and brings a unique understanding of older people care to his station. A patron of multiple care charities, including Abbeyfield care homes. His Majesty is the oldest Monarch to be coronated in British history, at the age of 74, and has joked that his age provides him with an understanding of exactly what it takes to look after older people.

At Radfield Home Care, we are proud to celebrate this momentous occasion with our nation and eagerly look forward to King Charles’ reign and his future support of home care and the care sector.
