A balcony appearance at Buckingham Palace, a concert featuring global stars and a day of volunteering will all form part of celebrations for the King Charles III’s coronation.
The palace has revealed new details on plans for events that will take place over the coronation weekend from Saturday May 6 to Monday, May 8.
The coronation of the king and queen consort will take place at Westminster Abbey on a Saturday morning, conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
According to the palace, it will be “a solemn religious service, as well as an occasion for celebration and pageantry.”
The service will “reflect the monarch’s role today and look towards the future while being rooted in longstanding traditions and pageantry.”
Charles and Camilla will arrive at the abbey in procession from Buckingham Palace, known as “the king’s procession,” and after the service, they will return to the palace in a larger ceremonial procession, known as “the coronation procession,” joined by other members of the royal family.
At the palace, Charles and Camilla will be joined by family members on the balcony to conclude the day’s ceremonial events.
The palace has not said exactly which family members will appear in the coronation procession or on the balcony.
Sunday will see “global music icons and contemporary stars” descend on Windsor Castle for the coronation concert which will be broadcast live on the BBC.
Several thousand members of the public will be selected to receive a pair of free tickets through a national ballot held by the BBC.
The audience will also include volunteers from the king and queen consort’s charity affiliations.
The show will feature a world-class orchestra playing interpretations of musical favourites fronted by “some of the world’s biggest entertainers, alongside performers from the world of dance,” the palace said.
The performances will be supported by staging and effects located on the castle’s east lawn and will also include a selection of spoken word sequences delivered by stars of stage and screen.
The Coronation Choir, a diverse group that will be created from the nation’s keenest community choirs and amateur singers from across the UK, such as refugee choirs, NHS choirs, LGBTQ+ singing groups and deaf signing choirs, will also make an appearance.
