What is the Coronation Oath?
As part of the coronation the monarch takes oaths as he is made the King.
The Archbishop of Canterbury will ask Charles a series of questions relating to governing the realms and territories and if he is willing to take the oath.
The Archbishop will ask at the beginning of the service: “Your Majesty, the Church established by law, whose settlement you will swear to maintain, is committed to the true profession of the Gospel, and, in so doing, will seek to foster an environment in which people of all faiths and beliefs may live freely.
“The Coronation Oath has stood for centuries and is enshrined in law. Are you willing to take the Oath?”
At the end of the oath, King Charles will say: “I Charles do solemnly and sincerely in the presence of God profess, testify, and declare that I am a faithful Protestant, and that I will, according to the true intent of the enactments which secure the Protestant succession to the Throne, uphold and maintain the said enactments to the best of my powers according to law.”
