Governor-General heads to King Charles’ coronation; no holiday here, says Minister

Posted: Friday, April 28, 2023. 6:22 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: An official notice this afternoon says Governor General Dame Froyla Tzalam departed this afternoon for the United Kingdom to join other Commonwealth heads of state for the official celebrations of His Majesty’s Coronation to be held a week from Saturday, May 6.

While the Governor-General is out of the country, Ambassador Stuart Leslie, Deputy Governor General, will assume her official duties.

Charles III officially took over from his late mother Queen Elizabeth II on her death in September, but the Coronation is the official acknowledgement of his accession to the British throne and as head of the Commonwealth.

Meanwhile, while the UK and some other Commonwealth countries will get an extra holiday for the occasion to be observed on May 8, Minister of Home Affairs with responsibility for holidays, Kareem Musa, said earlier this week that there are no plans to do that here.

“There’s nothing right now planned in terms of a holiday. Of course, Belizeans across the country will be in tune to the Coronation but there’s nothing right now…there is no plan to have a holiday on May 6,” he explained.

Monday, May 1 is being observed as Labour Day. Presuming the situation does not change, the Commonwealth/Sovereign’s Day holiday previously observed on May 24 is off the list as well, meaning the next public and bank holiday would be observed on July 31 for Emancipation Day on August 1.

A one-time-only public and bank holiday was given on September 19, two days before Independence Day, in honour of the Queen’s funeral service last year.
