The coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla will soon be the first ceremonial crowning of a British monarch in 70 years and the second-ever to be broadcast. For many, it will also be the first (and perhaps only) coronation they can see in real time.

This Saturday, May 6, thousands of people are expected to flock the streets of London to catch a glimpse of the coronation procession as the king and queen consort make their way from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey, and back. The historic occasion will also mark the first royal family reunion with Prince Harry since Queen Elizabeth II's funeral last September.
