A coronation is both the symbolic religious ceremony during which a sovereign is crowned and the physical act of placing a crown on a monarch's head. It formalises the monarch's role as the head of the Church of England and marks the transfer of their title and powers.
The King and Camilla, the Queen Consort, will travel to Westminster Abbey in the King's procession, and return to Buckingham Palace in a larger coronation procession. Following that members of the Royal Family will appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
The beautiful official coronation logo features a rose, a thistle, a daffodil and a shamrock - emblems from nations across the United Kingdom.
The Coronation will start at 5pm prompt
