    Non-Christian religions will be represented at the main ceremony by members of the House of Lords from the four major faiths. Indian-origin peers representing the Hindu and Sikh faiths will be joined by Muslim and Jewish House of Lords representatives in carrying key pieces of Coronation emblems to add a multi-faith touch to the Christian religious ceremony at Westminster Abbey in London on May 6.

    Lord Narendra Babubhai Patel, 84, will represent the Hindu faith and is expected to carry the sovereign’s ring on the day of the Coronation. Lord Indrajit Singh, 90, will represent the Sikh faith and is expected to carry the coronation glove. Lord Kamall, 56, a London-born Muslim peer, is expected to carry the armills or a pair of bracelets and Baroness Gillian Merron, 64, will represent the Jewish faith and is expected to carry one of the coronation robes.

    These royal regalia are expected to be handed over to the Archbishop of Canterbury, who will be presiding over the ceremony, to be passed on to King Charles. Non-Christian clerics are likely to be invited to form part of a faith procession.

    Buckingham Palace has not yet confirmed the details of the ceremony for the crowning of 74-year-old Charles as King. However, it has been widely expected that Charles would like to incorporate some multi-faith aspects to the traditionally Anglican Christian Coronation ceremony.
