Whether it's a deep-rooted love for Britain's monarchy or a mere fascination with the nation's most recognizable family, millions of eyes will be on King Charles' coronation on May 6. The highly anticipated event marks the ascension of the newly appointed sovereign following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, last September. Together with Queen Consort Camilla, King Charles III will be crowned in a symbolic ceremony at Westminster Abbey, officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The coronation festivities will continue the following day with a series of celebrations, including street parties and an evening concert. In a gesture of jubilation, pubs and bars across the United Kingdom will be allowed to extend their operating hours by two extra hours. Monday will be observed as a national holiday, allowing the nation to revel in the historic moment.

Buckingham Palace has affirmed that while the event will embrace modern elements to reflect the monarchy's present-day role, it will still uphold the longstanding traditions and pageantry witnessed during Queen Elizabeth's coronation in 1953. Approximately 2,200 individuals have been privileged with a spot on the guest list to witness this momentous occasion up close.
