Just watched a fascinating and very interesting video on You tube by Allan Barton entitled
What will Charles III wear at his coronation – the history and meaning of the king’s robes.
Given that the press usually get all this wrong and then start inventing stuff, not to mention all those
so called experts who confuse meaning and reality. This video is precise and simply tells you what will
happen on May 6, 2023.
Barton explains the meaning of the colours, red and purple, the meaning of Imperial, of the Cap of Maintenance and the 2 Crowns worn at coronation. It is a complicated affair and there is a strong religious signification to it all.
This Coronation painting hangs in the Lobby of the Senate of Canada in Ottawa. King George VI wearing purple as a symbol of his Royal authority. King George VI is the grandfather of King Charles III.
I too am fascinated how it all hangs together and what is the story behind each thing, which I suspect is nothing left to chance.
From what Dr. Barton From what Dr. Barton explains in years an authority on the matter it is a mystical priestly ceremony where the king is the anointed of God. Each garment represent by its colour embroidery The authority vested into the person of the king. Dr. Barton also explains the term imperial which has nothing to do with the British empire and goes back to the 13th century.
So Charles will be king of Canada, king of Great Britain and emperor of all these domains, meaning that he is not subordinate to any other ruler.

I am looking forward to watching, kind of a once in a lifetime event, unless he dies before I do (he is older than I am,)
