May 6th is an extremely important day, and I don’t have to tell you why. But I will. It’s National Crepe Suzette Day! I’m sure you’ve already got that important holiday written in Sharpie on your calendar and already counting down the days. But a much less exciting celebration is also happening on May 6th. The coronation of King Charles III is going down that day. Since it’s about a month away, Buckingham Palace has released a new picture of King Chuck and the side piece formerly known as Duchess Camilla and, more recently, Queen Consort Camilla. The palace also put out the official invitation for King Charles’ coronation, and Queen Camilla’s new title made its debut on it.
After THE QUEEN’s death last year, Prince Charles became King Charles III, and Duchess Camilla became Queen Consort Camilla. But that title was just a placeholder, I guess. Because back in February, Ben wrote about how the palace decided to do away with the “Consort” shit and simplify her title to Queen Camilla. Now, I’m sure that Camilla has been scribbling “Queen Camilla” with crown-hungry eyes in her diary for decades, but that title has now been officially used by the palace. It’s a big day for tampons AND side pieces everywhere!
Buckingham Palace shared the invite for KC3’s big day along with coronation invitations throughout British Royal history. I have a feeling that Camilla’s minions are busy today, rolling up that invitation and adding the note “go ahead and shove this up your arse” before sending it to everyone in the past who said that Camilla would never be Queen. So basically, we’re all getting one eventually.
As for who will RSVP to that invite, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan were invited last month, but they reportedly haven’t decided if they want to keep body language experts and lip readers busy by showing up to the coronation. President Joe Biden has already decided he’s not going (although no POTUS has ever gone to a coronation). One source said that he’s skipping the coronation because he’s visiting Northern Ireland at the end of this month and he’s 2Old2Travel (that sounds like the name of the 71st Fast & Furious movie) to the UK twice in 30 days. While Joe isn’t going, it was announced today that First Lady Jill Biden will represent the United States at the coronation.
And in even more news about King Chuck’s corny, second-in-line to the throne, 9-year-old Prince George, will be one of the Four Pages of Honor during the ceremony. George will join three other boys, including the son of Prince William’s alleged pegging side piece sweetheart, Rose Hanbury, and her husband, the Marquess, David Cholmondeley. via People:
George will take his place alongside Lord Oliver Cholmondeley, 13, the younger twin son of the Marquis of Cholmondeley (who was recently named as Charles’s Lord-in-Waiting) and his wife Rose — Norfolk neighbors of Prince William and Kate Middleton in Norfolk. The other two pages are Nicholas Barclay and Ralph Tollemache.
Camilla, meanwhile, has chosen her grandsons to support her on the big day. Twin brothers Gus and Louis Lopes, 14, who are the sons of Camilla’s daughter Laura Lopes, will be joined by Freddy Parker Bowles – the 13-year-old son of Camilla’s son Tom Parker Bowles. Camilla’s great-nephew, Arthur Elliot, will also join the group, the palace announced.
Hopefully, during the ceremony, Prince George will tackle his pepaw and snatch the crown that rightfully belongs to him. I mean, Charles is ungrateful! During a visit to Berlin last week, a man tried to gift him with a highly illustrious crown (The Burger King crown), and he snobbily turned it down.
King Charles has enough crowns back a home… but watch as German joker tries to hand him a cardboard Burger King crown during light-hearted walkabout in Berlin today (Charles politely turns him down saying ‘I’m alright”) pic.twitter.com/zJ7e2B67D9

Look at Charles acting like he’s too good for that crown. Long live the TRUE king (aka The Burger King).
Here’s Charles and Camilla visiting the Talbot Yard Food Court in Malton, North Yorkshire today:
