King Charles III, as part of his sustainability theme, will be recycling a ceremonial chair used by his grandfather, King George VI, during his coronation 86 years ago. This will be part of the different stages of the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey.
According to royal tradition, different ceremonial chairs and thrones are used during the Coronation Service. These chairs include St. Edward’s Chair or the Coronation Chair, which is used during the moment of crowning, as well as Chairs of Estate and Throne Chairs where the King and Queen Camilla will be seated at different points during the religious service.
In a bid to promote sustainability, King Charles III has chosen to recycle the chair used by his grandfather, which will add a historic touch to his coronation. The move to recycle the chair highlights the King’s commitment to environmental conservation, which is a cause he has been championing for several years.
The decision to recycle the chair has received widespread praise from environmentalists and conservationists who laud the King’s efforts to promote sustainability. This gesture is also seen as an excellent example of how even small actions can contribute to environmental conservation efforts.
As the world grapples with climate change, leaders around the globe have been called upon to prioritize environmental conservation. King Charles III’s decision to recycle a historic chair for his coronation is a clear demonstration of his commitment to this cause.
