Palace reveals King Charles Coronation Emblem drawn up by Apples design guru

A special emblem has been made to celebrate the coronation of King Charles inspired by his "love of the planet, nature, and his deep concern for the natural world."

The emblem was designed by Apple design guru Sir Jony Ive, who was the chief designer of the iPhone.

The design features a stylised image of St Edward’s Crown, which Charles will wear on the day of his coronation, in red, white, and blue.

The crown features on it the rose of England, thistle of Scotland, daffodil of Wales, and the shamrock of Northern Ireland.

Sir Jony said: “It is such an honour to be able to contribute to this remarkable national occasion, and our team is so very proud of this work.

“The design was inspired by King Charles’s love of the planet, nature, and his deep concern for the natural world.

“The emblem speaks to the happy optimism of spring and celebrates the beginning of this new Carolean era for the United Kingdom.

Ive's slick design eye was key to Apple becoming the world's largest tech company in the world.

The 55-year-old, who left the company in 2019 to start his own design firm, said: “The gentle modesty of these natural forms combine to define an emblem that acknowledges both the joyful and profound importance of this occasion.”

The emblem will be showcased throughout the bank holiday weekend in May where Charles will be crowned monarch at Westminster Abbey and will be used on all official merchandise commemorating the coronation.

The King meanwhile will be hoping that a potential no-show from Meghan and Harry won't steal the headlines.

The Prince is thought to be invited to the historic ceremony, but after the publication of his bombshell memoir Spare, old wounds have been opened up which could see him get a frosty reception should he chose to make an appearance.

The coronation will be the first since Queen Elizabeth's on 2 June 1953.
