Official Coronation Celebrations

What's Happening & How to Watch

While Charles III succeeded Queen Elizabeth II on September 8, 2022 following her passing, the official moment he will be crowned king will take place during the upcoming Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey on Saturday, May 6th at 11 am.

Following the Service, King Charles III and Camilla, Queen Concert will take part in a Coronation Procession from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace. Instead of a 5-mile route during Queen Elizabeth II 1953 Procession, the route will be shortened to 1.3 miles and well-wishers with a spot on the route have a chance to see the King and Queen Consort twice.

On Sunday, May 7th, the people of Britain will take part in the Coronation Big Lunch. The King and Queen have released an official Coronation quiche recipe made with spinach, broad beans, cheese and tarragon as the signature Coronation dish.

That evening there will be a Coronation Concert held at Windsor Castle including performances by Andrea Bocelli, Katy Perry, and Lionel Richie.

Coronation coverage will be available on BBC One and BBC iPlayer. Additionally, more than 55+ locations in the UK will put up big screens for people to watch.

With an additional Bank Holiday on Monday, May 8th, there is no excuse not to celebrate!
