On May 6, the coronation of Prince Charles will take place. To ensure that no Briton misses this historic event, the Crown has gone to great lengths and offered great means.
The countdown is on. On May 6, the British will officially crown their sovereign, Charles III. With less than two months to go before this global event, the Crown’s teams are working on the final details and do not intend to limit expenses, even if the monarch wanted a less expensive coronation than that of Elizabeth II. To ensure that no Briton misses the ceremony, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport has put its hand in the wallet. As reported by The Express, they have filled the cheques so that the subway stations and the ten largest urban areas in England but also in Wales and Northern Ireland … can be equipped with giant screens.
Each local authority can decide whether to spend the royal funding on one large venue or several smaller ones. Some screens will also broadcast the coronation concert live from Windsor Castle on Sunday, May 7. “The Coronation will be a magical moment that brings people together to celebrate the best of Britain over a special weekend in May,” said Culture Secretary Lucy Frazer. These large screens, in key locations in cities and towns across the four nations of the UK, will make it easier for everyone to participate and have a memorable experience to mark this exciting and historic event.” Several cities are expected to host events including cultural festivals, concerts, community workshops, creative games and competitions.
