Following that there will also be a special lunch, either at Windsor or BP I expect. Do hope there's some foreign royal contingent invited.

I wonder how many of the foreign royals who actually attended the coronation in 53 are still alive?

Emperor Akihito and his wife, it was mentioned last year during Jubilee celebrations.

A lot of foreign royals attended Golden Jubilee celebrations but did they attend the coronation service?

I do hope this is a memorable occasion with all the pomp and circumstance that the Queen deserves. One thing for certain though, if things are true to form, it will put a trend forward on maternity wear.

This is a truly amazing find! London Gazette has what seems to be an official program of the coronation; http://www.london-gazette.co.uk/issu...pplements/6223

Guest who are still alive;
1. King Albert of Belgium who represented the then King Baudoin,
2. Emperor Akihito who was the then Crown Prince.
3. Grand Duke Jean who represented his mother.

That's it.

Hmmm, for some reason I thought Astrid of Norway, still alive today, accompanied her parents to the coronation.

What a fascinating read. I forget that Prince Michael of Kent was at the Coronation as I always think of him being quite young, when really he isn't much older than Charles is he?

I cannot WAIT for Charles' coronation. I cannot wait to see the order of service and all the pomp and pageantry.

Thanks for the link, those videos are so lovely and fascinating. I always forget how small and young Charles and Anne were when their other became Queen.

From what I've read, the coverage on BBC1 starts at 10 am UK time with the service at 11.
