It’s Maundy Thursday – and exactly one month to go until the Coronation of King Charles and Queen Camilla on 6 May.

Maundy Thursday is the Christian holy day falling on the Thursday before Easter. It commemorates the Maundy and Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles. Maundy money is given as an act of charity.

This year’s service is being held at York Minister and the King will present 74 men and 74 women – denoting the age of the monarch – with a Maundy gift and thank them for their “Christian service” and their help in local communities.

Last year, the service was held at St George’s Chapel in Windsor where the then Prince of Wales represented the Queen at the event.

Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world. It has been the family home of British kings and queens for almost 1,000 years and is today one of the official residences of His Majesty The King.

Visitors flock to Windsor Castle to see the State Apartments and the Albert Memorial Chapel among others. St George’s Chapel is the resting place of many British monarchs.
