Herzogs to fly to UK for King Charles coronation

President Isaac Herzog and his wife Michal will formally represent Israel at the coronation of King Charles III in London on Saturday, his office announces.

The pair will stay near Westminster Abbey so that they can walk to the ceremony without violating Shabbat, the President’s Residence says in a statement.

The Herzogs will fly to London on Thursday evening, and on Friday will attend a reception hosted by King Charles III at Buckingham Palace in honor of all the heads of state and royals who have flown in for the occasion.

The Herzogs also represented Israel at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II last year.
