King Charles and Queen Camilla will have a second coronation on 5 July when the pair will be crowned in a special Scottish ceremony and presented with the Honours of Scotland.

And ahead of the major event for the royal couple, the monarch has gifted his wife with an incredible honour. In a statement from Buckingham Palace, it was confirmed that Camilla had been appointed to the Order of the Thistle, which is Scotland’s greatest order of chivalry.

The statement read: “The King has been graciously pleased to appoint the Queen to the Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle.”

The title is held by other senior royals, including the King’s sister, Princess Anne, and the heir to the throne, Prince William, with the pair joining the order in 2000 and 2012 respectively. 

The monarch is in charge of who is appointed to the Order, and it recognises those who hold public office or contribute significantly to national life.

The order can have up to 16 knights, with two of the positions having fallen vacant. Before Camilla, the most recent appointments to the Order were Lady Elish Angiolini, a former lord advocate of Scotland, and Sir George Reid, a former MSP and presiding officer of the Scottish Parliament.

Charles and Camilla will be heading to Scotland for their first official visit since the coronation, in order to mark Holyrood Week, with their second coronation just one of many scheduled events.

The King and Queen will also host a garden party in Edinburgh, alongside other engagements that are yet to be expected. The service is expected to be held in St Giles’s Cathedral, where the late Queen was initially laid to rest following her death on 8 September.

During the service, the King will be presented with the Scottish Crown Jewels, which are formally known as the Honours of Scotland. The Honours are the oldest surviving Crown Jewels in Great Britain and date back to the middle of the 16th century.

The Scottish crown, sword of state, and sceptre will be used during the coronation service.
