Following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, King Charles III was announced as England’s new head of the monarchy. And while it has been some months since, he has yet to even be properly crowned! In fact, his coronation date is set for Saturday, May 6. And in typical British fashion, we’ll even get an extra bank holiday that Monday (May 8) to prolong the festivities. Everyone’s getting in on the action, with special afternoon teas, cocktails, events, and more. So, to make the most of the long weekend, here are the 26 most royal ways to spend the long weekend and celebrate the coronation of King Charles III.
1. Make your mark on Tower Bridge
Over the Easter holidays, and through until mid-April, Tower Bridge gave guests the chance to design their own bunting that would grace to celebrate the coronation. And now these custom pieces of bunting have been strung up for all to see, until Monday, May 8. Head on down to see your own piece amidst the decoration. If you visit on the day of the coronation, you’ll also get a special, one-off ticket, to commemorate the occasion.
2. Take a selfie with the royals
Or, at least, a waxwork of them… Ahead of King Charles III’s coronation, Madame Tussauds has given their monarch waxworks a bit of shine as part of the new Royal Palace experience.
