Indian-origin As the United Kingdom draws down to the coronation of King Charles III, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak gave a unique message. Rishi Sunak emphasised the major role that members of all faiths will play in the religious ritual, saying, “In the Abbey where monarchs have been crowned for almost a thousand years, representatives of every faith will play a central role for the first time.”
Following a recent history of UK prime ministers reading at State occasions, the first Hindu to hold office at 10 Downing Street will do the same. He will read from the biblical book of Colossians. His wife will lead a group of flag-bearers in a march as well.
“The coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla will inspire tremendous pride in our country. We shall celebrate the enduring qualities of our great monarchy—its tenacity, loyalty to duty, and service to others—along with friends from all around the Commonwealth and beyond. The processions, spectacle, ceremonies, and street parties are unmatched by any other nation, according to Rishi Sunak.
Rishi Sunak emphasised that the coronation is a proud representation of the history, culture, and traditions of the UK and that it is also “a vivid demonstration of the current spirit of our country. And a beloved custom that ushers in a new age… And in a fitting tribute to the attitude of service that will characterise the Carolean Age, people in our nation will perform thousands of small acts of kindness in their communities.
“So let’s enjoy this weekend’s festivities while being proud of who we are and what we stand for. Let’s have a hopeful and upbeat outlook on the future. So that we can tell our grandchildren about the day we gathered to sing “God Save the King,” he encouraged them to create new memories.
