Invitation to King Charles III coronation an honor – Chakwera

President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera Wednesday described the invitation to attend the coronation of King Charles III and Queen Consort as an honour and that “Malawians are proud to be part of the larger community”.

The President said this at Kamuzu International Airport (KIA) in Lilongwe before his departure to the United Kingdom for the event slated for May 6, 2023, at Westminster Abbey, England.

The invitation to the coronation ceremony was sent through the British High Commission and Chakwera said, as a Commonwealth member, Malawi has to join the whole world in celebrating King Charles III’s coronation.

“We’ve been honoured to have been invited and we believe that such solidarity of humanity is critical,” said Chakwera, adding: “Some time back, we were a British protectorate – we cannot erase this history – and at some point a governor was ruling this country on behalf of the Queen.”

He added that as a long time bilateral ally of the UK, it is the right thing for Malawi to join the ceremony as the country has usually done with other activities that happen around the Monarch.

While in England, the President is expected to hold bilateral talks with some of the global leaders who will also be attending the coronation.

President Chakwera is expected to be back in the country on Tuesday, May 9, 2023.
