Buckingham Palace has released more details about the coronation processions of King Charles III.

The King and Queen will travel from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey in the Diamond Jubilee State Coach. This was created in 2012 for the 60th anniversary of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. It will be drawn by six Windsor Greys.

The King’s Procession will proceed down The Mall, passing through Admiralty Arch and south of King Charles I Island, down Whitehall and along Parliament Street. Finally, the King’s Procession will travel around the east and south sides of Parliament Square to Broad Sanctuary to arrive at the Sanctuary of Westminster Abbey at 11 a.m.

The Coronation Procession, from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace, will be much larger and will include the Armed Forces from across the Commonwealth. The King and Queen will travel in the Gold State Coach, which has been used in every coronation since that of King William IV in 1831. It will be drawn by eight Windsor Greys.

On their return to Buckingham Palace, the King and Queen will receive a Royal Salute from the United Kingdom and Commonwealth Armed Forces, who have been on parade that day. This will be followed by three cheers from the assembled service personnel.
