WHEN Charles is crowned king on May 6 at a service at Westminster Abbey, the entire country will be asked to swear a religious oath of allegiance to the monarch.
Those watching the crowning have been asked to say:
I swear that I will pay true allegiance to your majesty, and to your heirs and successors according to law. So help me God.
Declaring that the coronation was “first and foremost an act of Christian worship,” Archbishop Justin Welby said:
It is my prayer that all who share in this service, whether they are of faith or no faith, will find ancient wisdom and new hope that brings inspiration and joy.
Welby will proclaim “God save the King”, with all asked to respond by saying:
God save King Charles. Long live King Charles. May the King live forever.
The exhortation to swear the oath is not going down well well with what the right-wing Daily Mail calls “spoilsports” in the headline below.
The Mail‘s Elizabeth Haigh wrote:
Republicans have been left fuming at the optional part of the service, slamming the request as ‘offensive’ and ‘tone-deaf’.

And she named Professor Priyamvada Gopal, above, as one of a “minority” of anti-royalists who are “airing their anger” less than a week before the hugely expensive extravaganza.
Writing on Twitter, Gopal said:
Peasants, you are asked to chant: ‘I swear that I will pay true allegiance to Your Majesty, and to your heirs and successors according to law. So help me God.’
Then she offered an alternative:
I swear to continue paying allegiance to Rule by Wealth, and to all who profiteer and siphon off money from the public weal, according to law or not. So help me keep believing that Money is God, cupiditas forever and ever, amen’.
The Professor of Postcolonial Studies at Churchill College, Cambridge later added:
Appropriate that the mass oath of fealty to obscene wealth and extractive inequality will be administered by the ex-oilman archbishop.
Although the coronation will be overwhelmingly Christian the entire coronation is being touted as a multi-faith affair.
The Times of Israel reports that it will:
Feature a prominent role for Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist and Jewish leaders, according to the order of service released by the office of Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.

And it pointed out that Rishi Sunak, above, Britain’s first Hindu Prime Minister, will give a reading from the Bible at the service, which will also be attended by Scotland’s First Minister Humza Yousaf, the first Muslim to hold the post and to lead a Western European government.
A majority of Brits don’t care much, if at all, about this royal flapdoodle

Norman Baker, above, a former Liberal Democrat MP wrote yesterday (Saturday) that a YouGov poll this month revealed that “64% of us don’t care very much or care at all about the event, while only 9% care a great deal.”
And he questioned the need for a coronation.
Why are we having a coronation, anyway? No other European monarchy bothers. The last one in Spain was in 1555, and the Scandinavian monarchies in Denmark, Sweden and Norway had all deemed the archaic practice unnecessary by 1906.
There is no legal need for a coronation. Charles is king without it. That was sealed in the days after the Queen’s death at the accession council, which I attended as a privy counsellor (though naturally none of us got a vote).
No, the real purpose is to stage a huge candy-floss PR event for the royals. But it will bring in tourists, royal supporters argue. Personally, I don’t think it sensible to base our constitutional arrangements on what tourists want. We are not Disney World. Or perhaps we are, with golden coaches, fake princesses and castles galore.
His article was centred on the £100m cost.
Charles says he wants to modernise the monarchy. If he is serious, he can start by paying tax on the gigantic inheritance from his mother —the racehorses, the paintings and the rest. And he can pay for his own coronation. After all, he can afford it.
