King Charles III is set to be crowned as monarch this weekend, celebrating his reign over the United Kingdom after his official accession to the throne.

The lavish affair will take place at the iconic Westminster Abbey and is said to cost anywhere between $63 to $125 million, which will be paid for by the UK Government and Buckingham Palace through the Sovereign Grant and Privy Purse.

RadarOnline.com has learned there are rumors the event may be "slimmed down" due to the economic situation and is now aimed to be "smaller, less expensive and more representative." It's questioned if that means a shorter guest list or ceremony to fit the budget.

The palace did not confirm which aspects of the coronation would be altered but did say the ceremony would include the same core elements in addition to reflecting "the spirit of the times."
