Coronation will include invite to public to swear allegiance out loud to King Charles

People watching the ceremony will be invited to say the words: “I swear that I will pay true allegiance to Your Majesty, and to your heirs and successors according to law – so help me God.”

Millions of people will be asked to say a pledge of allegiance to the King when he is crowned on Saturday.

For the first time in history, the public will be given an active role in the coronation, with the Archbishop of Canterbury calling on those watching or listening to the event to take part in a “great cry around the nation and around the world of support for the King“.

The new Homage of the People will replace the traditional Homage of Peers, where a line of hereditary peers knelt to make a pledge to the newly coronated monarch in person.
