The first Coronation of the 21st century will come equipped with a very modern accessory – its own emoji.
With less than a month to go until King Charles III and Queen Camilla are crowned, a brand new social media symbol will appear on Twitter whenever some special hashtags are used.
Five phrases will generate a version of St. Edward’s Crown, adding a whole new spin to an object that has symbolised royalty for almost a thousand years.
The hashtags are #Coronation, #CoronationConcert, #CoronationWeekend, #CoronationBigLunch and #TheBigHelpOut.
It follows the success of last year’s Platinum Jubilee emoji which added a corgi in a crown to a series of hashtags as millions celebrated the 70th anniversary of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
King Charles III and Queen Camilla will be crowned on May 6 2023 at Westminster Abbey.
