Press Release: Anointing Screen Release

London, UK, April 2023 – The anointing screen which will be used in the coronation of King Charles III, in the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace in London. The most important moment in the coronation is the “unction”, the sacred act of anointing a monarch with holy oil, which can be traced as far back as the 7th and 8th centuries, and signals that the monarch has been chosen by God. It is only seen by the sovereign and the Archbishop of Canterbury and will take place behind the anointing screen. Picture date: Monday April 24, 2023. PA Photo. See PA story ROYAL Coronation.
