The guest list for the King's coronation is slowly been revealed, and his son, Prince Harry, has confirmed his attendance. Other royal families from around the world have also accepted the new King's invitation to his coronation, which is breaking away from royal tradition.

King Charles' coronation will be broadcasted on national TV, allowing millions of people to watch this historic day. So if you want to watch the big day on TV, here's everything you need to know!

Coronation May 6, 2023

The coronation will take place on May 6, 2023, and it is already known that the celebrations will be much smaller than before. On the one hand, this is because King Charles wants to slim down the monarchy and save taxmoney.

On the other hand, because of the current situation. The United Kingdom is struggling with inflation and Brexit, so a too-pompous celebration would not be appropriate. However, despite opting for a more low-key coronation, King Charles is still facing backlash for the price of the ceremony.

Nevertheless, heads of state and all dignitaries are coming to the United Kingdom from all over the world to attend the coronation ceremony.

If you're a royal fan, you'll want to be there when Charles is officially crowned king. But since getting to London that day will be a logistical nightmare and there will be so many people there that you won't be able to see anything, we recommend you watch the ceremony live on TV.
