The next big event for King Charles after accession will be his coronation, planned jointly by the monarch, church and state. Parliament will need to update the Regency Acts to provide for additional Counsellors of State. Meanwhile several Commonwealth countries have declared their intent to leave the monarchy and become republics. Three experts come together to discuss what these developments tell us about the new reign:
- Catherine Pepinster, author of Defenders of the Faith: the British Monarchy, Religion, and the next Coronation
- Dr Craig Prescott (Bangor), author of a forthcoming book on the Regency Acts
- Dr Sue Onslow, Director of the Institute of Commonwealth Studies, University of London.
