Grant Harrold, who worked as former butler to the now-King Charles III, has claimed that the new Queen will be “terrified” as she steps out alongside the King on May 6. He added that the 75-year-old “didn’t ask for it” as she prepares to rule alongside the King. The Coronation will take place at Westminster Abbey, and will be marked by the public with a special Bank Holiday weekend.
He added, speaking of the King, that he has “done this for so long” so will likely be feeling slightly different on the day to his wife.
Although he added that the King will be “very particular” about one thing – “making sure everyone knows what they are doing”.
Harrold added that the King will “trust” that everyone will “get it right”.
He added that the Queen Consort “really loves” the King and is “not in it for this [the Coronation]”.
