The Church of England recently shared a glimpse of the coronation liturgy, which details Prince William’s duties during the ceremony at Westminster Abbey on Saturday, May 6.

As E! News points out, the Prince of Wales will be tasked with presenting the Stole Royal and the Robe Royal to his dad. After the Bishop of Durham places the stole on the king, Prince William will assist a group of bishops with the robe.

Once the king is clothed, Prince William will kneel before him and recite the Homage of Royal Blood. The 40-year-old will say, “I, William, Prince of Wales, pledge my loyalty to you and faith and truth I will bear unto you, as your liege man of life and limb. So help me God.”

According to the church’s website, the Stole and Robe Royal hold a special meaning because they “represent what The King, as Sovereign, has been given by God.” As the heir, Prince William will receive a glimpse of what’s to come when he eventually ascends the throne. While the robe was originally made for King George IV’s coronation, the stole was specifically made for King Charles.

Prince William’s son, Prince George (9), will also have a special role in King Charles’s coronation. He we will serve as one of eight Pages of Honor.

We can’t wait for all the photo ops to come.
