Saturday 6th May
Today sees the first coronation service in 70 years at Westminster Abbey. Crowds are sure to gather along the Mall, Whitehall and Parliament Square, where the King’s procession can be watched. The viewing areas will be open from 06:00am on Saturday.
Invited guests will begin arriving at the Abbey early in the morning. The King’s Procession from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey will take place before the Coronation Service, which starts at 11:00am. Once the service is over, it will be followed by the Coronation Procession from Westminster Abbey back to Buckingham Palace. Later in the afternoon, the King and Queen will greet crowds from the Buckingham Palace balcony for the flypast of The Red Arrows and 60 military aircraft that will conclude the ceremonial events.
God Save the King!
