The publication said government officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, had revealed plans were afoot for a ceremony on that Saturday.
Queen Elizabeth’s coronation date was June 2, 1953.
That would mean a July 3, 2023 coronation would be exactly 70 years and one day since Queen Elizabeth was crowned.
But a Buckingham Palace spokesperson has denied that the June 3 date was set in stone.
According to The Mirror, a palace representative said reports of a June 3 date were “purely speculation.”
It’s widely believed the coronation will be a slimmed-down version of earlier ones – in line with King Charles’ plans for the monarchy as a whole.
In fact, some believe there could be some major title changes ahead for some royals.
Speaking to Fox News Digital, royal commentator Hilary Fordwich said Prince Andrew’s daughters could lose their “princess” titles because of Andrew’s controversial friendship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
“Unfortunately for Princesses Eugene and Beatrice, their father’s conduct has had rather an adverse and actually disastrous impact on their royal futures,” Fordwich said.
“The Princesses are most likely to become Lady Beatrice and Lady Eugenie since their father, Prince Andrew’s, sexual assault scandal has purportedly poured ruin on their chances of becoming working royals.”
“Retaining their titles is highly dubious because the decision, regarding their titles, is to be made by and with the new reign of their uncle, King Charles III,” Fordwich added.
“Now, with King Charles III making British monarchy decisions Charles is predicted to be making the use of titles more restrictive.”
Other titles still currently up in the air are those which Prince Harry’s children were expected to receive.
As the siblings are now grandchildren of the monarch, they had been expected to receive prince and princess titles.
But according to Roya Nikkhah, the royal editor for The Times, Charles “hasn’t decided” how Harry’s children with wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex will be addressed.
“Harry and Meghan are understood to fear the King may strip Archie and Lilibet of their titles, after his reluctance immediately to recognise their elevated status after the Queen’s death,” Nikkhah wrote.
