After the passing of Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022, the heir to the throne Charles III, stepped up and accessioned the throne to take his position as King. The official coronation ceremony will take place the weekend of May 6th – 8th and people across the Commonwealth are invited to join the celebrations and what better way to welcome in a new beginning than with British themed party supplies from Shindigs.
This is not the first occasion where Union Jack Party supplies have been in high demand and it certainly won’t be the last. From celebrations of birth and marriage to days of mourning, there are plenty of reasons to take part and buy decorations for a Royal themed party.
The word Coronation derives from the Latin word “Corona” meaning a crown which typically happens at the end of the Ceremony however it is much more than just that one moment. Coronations have been an important part of our history and it is a special part of the early stages of a monarch’s reign, where they make promises to God and the people they serve.
Although King Charles has been acting as King since his accession of the throne, the Coronation doesn’t happen until months after as this allows the royal family and the nation to grieve the loss of our former Monarch. But now the time has come to celebrate, so shop online at Shindigs for all your British themed party supplies, Union Jack Banners, Kings Crowns and much more.
Up until 1953 when our former Queen, Elizabeth II’s coronation, this special ceremony was only viewed by members of the Royal Family and those within the walls of Westminster Abbey. However on that momentous occasion for the first time, millions of people were able to tune in and watch the celebration on TV and ever since we have been able to watch and celebrate along with the Royal families, their triumphs and tragedies, many of which are decorated with British themed party supplies.
