: my question is what is the meaning of :-

: one day he will have a crown above his head

First I was thinking it might refer to actual coronations. But I googled for an image and found ones showing a Greek wedding.

"In an Eastern Orthodox wedding, the couple gets to be king and queen for the day. The centerpiece of the ceremony is the elaborate crowns that are placed on the couple's heads. They are not only worn at the wedding, but are displayed in the couple's home for a long time to come."
