Buckingham Palace has revealed more details about the weekend of King Charles III’s coronation.

The actual ceremony will take place in Westminster Abbey on Saturday, 6 May. Charles and Camilla will arrive in procession, the so-called “King’s Procession” from Buckingham Palace. After the service, they will also return to Buckingham Palace in procession, the so-called “Coronation Procession”. Other members of the royal family will also participate in this second procession. The family will appear on the balcony at Buckingham Palace.

A special coronation concert will take place at Windsor Castle on Sunday, 7 May. This will be broadcast live on the BBC and will bring together several musical stars. In front of the audience, volunteers from the many charities of which the King and Queen are patrons will be invited. With a national lottery, citizens will also be able to obtain a free ticket for the concert.

On that same Sunday, neighbourhoods and neighbours are invited to join the “Coronation Big Lunches” to celebrate friendship. Camilla has been a patron of the “Big Lunch” since 2013.

Monday, 8 May, is a so-called bank holiday in the United Kingdom. On that day, “The Big Help Out” is organized and people are encouraged to volunteer.
