King Charles III's Coronation in Isle of Man in 2023

An extra bank holiday will be held on the Isle of Man next year to mark the coronation of King Charles III.

The Manx government confirmed it would mirror the UK in approving the holiday on Monday May 8th 2023, two days after Charles's coronation at Westminster Abbey.

A spokesman said it would see a "long weekend to mark the celebrations".

The King was proclaimed as the island's Lord of Mann following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

King Charles III's coronation is to be held on Saturday May 6th 2022, at Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace has announced.

Camilla, the Queen Consort, will be alongside the King and will also be crowned in the historic ceremony.

King Charles became monarch when his mother the late Queen died, but the coronation will mark a symbolic celebration of his new reign.

With much pageantry and ritual, the King will be anointed as sovereign and a crown placed on his head.

The coronation will be the first for almost 70 years - the last being for Elizabeth II in June 1953 - and the first held on a Saturday since Edward VII in 1902.

It is not yet known whether there will be an extra bank holiday added or moved to the coronation weekend, with a bank holiday already scheduled for earlier that week on Monday May 1st.

Buckingham Palace has indicated that the ceremony will combine the ancient and modern - saying it will be "rooted in longstanding traditions" but will also "reflect the monarch's role today and look towards the future".

Camilla, the Queen Consort will be crowned as part of the service, in a similar but simpler ceremony to the crowning of the King.

The Queen’s iconic coronation cost £1.57 million – the equivalent of £46million today.

More than 8,000 guests representing 129 nations travelled to Westminster Abbey for the Queen’s coronation, which was so full VIPs were forced to sit on makeshift benches.

A royal source previously told the Daily Telegraph about Charles’ coronation plans: “It will be shorter, sooner, smaller, less expensive and more representative of different community groups and faiths.”
