King Charles will be crowned King alongside the Queen Consulate during an extravagant ceremony at Westminster Abbey on May 6th weekend. This will start a whole weekend of events, including a coronation concert at Windsor Castle on the Sunday. This is said to be offering performances from ‘global music icons’ and ‘contemporary stars’ so it promises to be quite an iconic show. The celebrations are also good news for the public, with confirmation that an additional bank holiday will be granted on the Monday afterwards (8th). Previous Royal events that have warranted an additional bank holiday include The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee (June 2022), The Queen’s State Funeral (September 2022), and the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton (April 2011).
The coronation will happen on the Saturday (6th) and around 2,000x guests are expected to attend – four times this amount is said to have attended Queen Elizabeth’s ceremony in 1953, so this is a lot smaller amount in comparison. Once anointed by the Archbishop, Charles will be officially crowned and named King Charles III. After the ceremony, he will take a 1.3-mile procession route in the 1762 Gold State Coach, with the Imperial State Crown on his head. This will be the opportunity for the public to line the streets and see the first glimpse of their newly crowned King. The route will start at Westminster Abbey after the ceremony and will then head towards Whitehall, past Admiralty Arch, before heading down The Mall and to Buckingham Palace, which will be the final destination. The above shows some key landmarks that the route will pass, ending at the iconic building of the establishment, Buckingham Palace.
Talking of well-known establishments in London, the Parliament is obviously known worldwide. For years now Custom Labels Ltd has produced asset labels for IT assets for the British Parliament. These go onto all manner of IT assets and are produced onto a security material to avoid tampering/removal of the label from the device, deterring theft. This material is our Ultra-Destruct Vinyl, and it is one of our best-selling products, due to its security feature, it is perfect for placing onto high-value bits of kit in offices. The security feature works by means of once the label is adhered to, it becomes impossible to remove in one attempt. If a pick is attempted by an unwanted user, then the label will simply fragment into a small, tiny little piece under the user’s fingernail.
We have also produced this product for many other high-profile businesses, such as Google and ITV – amongst many others. Due to our high-tech UV printing capabilities, we can print any design onto this material, including any logo and colour match that may be relevant. We are also able to offer short runs and long runs at efficient pricing rates, plus we can even offer free samples of your label before you buy! If you are after something that does not incorporate a security feature, which perhaps prioritises durability above anything else, then feel free to browse the rest of our range. If this is the case then you will want to be looking at our Ultimate Asset Tag, which has extreme levels of durability to abrasion, chemicals, and all-weather conditions.
