The BBC will provide comprehensive coverage of all ceremonial events as they transpire during King Charles III Coronation.

US President Joe Biden has announced that he will not be present at the service; however, First Lady Jill Biden will attend the ceremony. Prince Harry has confirmed his attendance at the coronation without his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. This marks his first public appearance alongside the Royal Family following the publication of his memoir, Spare.
Within the Abbey, viewers at home will be able to observe as thousands of guests assemble, including past and present politicians, faith leaders, patronages of the King and Queen Consort, and members of the royal family. The BBC will capture the splendour of the Coronation Service, from the music to the exquisite architecture. The service commences at 11am.
Throngs of people will gather along the streets in central London, eager for a view of the most extensive military ceremonial undertaking in seventy years.
Subsequently, the King and Queen will address the masses from the balcony of Buckingham Palace during a six-minute ceremonial flypast. Numerous aircraft utilised by the UK Armed Forces in global operations will soar across London’s skies.
