belief in the Divine rights ofkings and queens the medieval period ispeople saw this as an as a moment thatwas a Godly moment it was an act of Godfor the last 900 years the ceremony hastaken place in Westminster Abbey atradition that started with William theConqueror it was really an act ofpolitical symbolism that he was aroundin the same place that Edward Confessorwas laid to rest and it was in thisperiod that it said that when Edward theConfessor died he handed the monks ofWestminster Abbey all of his regalia thecrown jewels normally locked away in theTower of London will be on full displaythere are various parts of thecoronation regalia which are alsoincredibly old the coronation spoondates from the 13th century and otheraspects of the crown jewels date from1661. so it's incredibly old and thatgives it this real weight of the pastit's really embedded in in EnglishHistory and British history I mean whenyou think about Henry VIII even for himit was 500 years old some of theseceremonies so it's quite incredible oncecrowned the king will travel back to thePalace in the gold State coachoriginally commissioned for King GeorgeIII in the 1700s Queen's Precisionallows the

the things that the Kingwas very very keen to try and make isthe occasion joyfulso I've chosen Psalm 98 which has theline in it many several times Make aJoyful Noiseand so the Anthem is called Make aJoyful Noise but with a new age comesnew questions about the future of themonarchy and its place in modern societyCharles has a very different challengefacing him he's got to sort of provethat the monarchy is legitimate he islegitimate we have to feel a connectionwith the royal family and the way thatyou can clearly see that connection isbeing portrayed and put forward is thatthey aren't dissimilar to us they aresimilar to us even as the monarchy facesnew scrutiny the coronation will giveKing Charles a chance to win overSkeptics I think the coronation canbring country together I think it's acontinuation of the pageantry of theQueen's funeral which was something thatabsolutely brought the country togetherCharles is of course no stranger to Pompand pageantry take a look this is

Diana died tragically in a caraccident Britain saw a huge outpouringof grief and a public turning againstthe Royals while Charles has faced a bitof a tough time I think in his publicreception and

to be able to formthat opinion is him no matter what youread or what you see you're never goingto know someone unless you actually getto meet them and talk to them properlythat's what I say about

of people in that sort ofproblem people can portray that as muchas they want but we got each other totalk towell a lot has changed for William andHarry over the years in his recentMemoir spare Harry calls William hisbeloved brother and arch nemesis butwith news that Harry is set to attendthe coronation we expect them to onceagain share the spotlight to supporttheir father here's NBC's Molly Hunterthe news from Buckingham Palace we'veall been waiting for confirmation thatPrince Harry will be attending hisfather's coronation in a statement thepalace is pleased to confirm that Harrywill be at the service at WestminsterAbbey while his wife Megan will remainin California with Prince Archie andPrincess lilibet the announcementfollows months of feverish speculationover whether Harry and Megan wereinvited and whether they would make thetrip sharing the king's big day QueenCamilla who will also be crownedalongside King Charles the fact thatCamilla's role is now so important it'sconstitutional as wellit will be difficult for Harry I thinkto to swallow that pill of seeing theembodiment of everything he didn't wantHarry's public confirmed attendance wellpast the RSVP date of April 3rd raisesissues of planning and security FrogmoreCottages no longer the Sussex UKresidents however there are other Royalhouseholds Harry could bunk at for theweekend in a new biography of KingCharles by Royal commentator RobertJohnson now being serialized in theDaily Mail he cites interviews withinsiders and careers who say financiallythe post-megan and Harry slim downworking royal family was a necessitywriting Charles dropped a bombshellsaying he couldn't afford to pay forMegan in the future as well as forCamilla and for William and Catherineand their young family this infuriatedHarry but in his last major round ofinterviews around his book spare Harrysuggested there was still optimism andfor this country that's still adoresthose Brothers it will be a welcomesight to see them together at least fora dayHoda and I asked NBC Royal commentatorDaisy mcandrew what she makes of Harry'sdecision to attend the coronationwithout MeganI think the palace believes that isprobably the best and most elegantsolution but of course for the couplethey were kind of damned if they did anddamned if they didn't particularly forMegan who as Molly was saying hasdecided to stay back the date gives hera bit of cover of course we know it'sArchie's fourth birthday so she can saythat is why she's staying and that'scertainly what her people have beenintimating and of course there wereconcerns that if Megan did make it overthat perhaps her presence wouldovershadow the day that perhaps shemight get booing or negative publicitypersonally I hope that wouldn't havebeen the case and I think it's sad she'snot coming but people are delighted thatHarry is coming and Daisy what do youexpect because there's a lot of eventssurrounding the coronation do you thinkthis is just the bare minimum appearancefor Harry or might we see him in otherplaces in other events during thatweekendno my fear is this is a sort of blinkand you miss it visit that's certainlyuh the rumors coming out of of CampSussex that it's going to be a verybrief event that perhaps he might evenjust fly in go to the actual coronationnot even come back to Buckingham Palacein the procession after the coronationwe know he was never going to be on thebalcony behind me because that isreserved on the day of Coronation justfor working Royals but we don't believehe's going to stick around for theconcert for the big lunch for any of theother events and of course again he cansay I want to race home to Montecito tobe with my little boy it's his fourthbirthday so that means you don'tanticipate any conversations uh betweenhim and his brother or him and hisfather that might crop upI mean I think everybody's got a thingcrossed that therewas the beginning of the thawing ofrelations but as far as we know therehaven't been any conversations up tillnow we know that Harry had said that hisred line for coming to the coronationwas to get an apology there's no signthat that's happened we don't believethe brothers have talked for a very longtime nowcoming up long live the king we speak tosome of the biggest Royal fans on thisside of the pond[Music]foreign[Music][Applause]welcome back Royal Watchers on bothsides of the Atlantic are lookingforward to the coronation of KingCharles III we talked to some here inthe states and they told us why they'llbe watchingbecause it's going to be the onlycoronation in my lifetime it's soexciting it's exciting that's happeningin my lifetime and in a way where like Ican still experience it over televisionand watch it and see sort of this likehistorical happening in a modern timeand sort of with some new like hopefullymodern twists to it this isa actual ashtray not that we shouldstart smoking again commemorating thecoronation of King George and QueenElizabeth as you can maybe assume I'mreally excited to see what type ofspecial hats and Hardware people willput on the different sort of symbolismsbehind perhaps the colors and theflowers and and maybe the animals andthe different sort of Silhouettes thatthey'll wear I think the coronation isan opportunity for us to flood thestreets and celebrate together I'mactually going to watch the coronationon Derby day because I'm originally fromKentucky uh at a friend's wedding inNorth Carolina probably secretly on myphone during the ceremony I think hesort of you know he has a hard act tofollow but he's been training his wholelife to be the king and I'm glad he gota shot at it it's a great opportunity tolive vicariously through other peoplewho have what we all consider to be aCharmed Life in a lot of ways theyembody a fairy talewhereas in the UK there's an addedelement there's the history they arefigureheads they in many ways embodywhat britishness is to the world I thinkit's a boy he's wearing
