The news of opening Tutankhamun exhibition on Friday in the British capital London is highlighted in British magazines and newspapers.

Most of the front pages of British newspapers and magazines prepared press kits for the exhibition of the young king and the story of his tomb discovery and treasures. They are also talking about the studies on his mummy to find out the proportions and diseases he suffered during his life and the real reason behind his early death.

The British people consider this exhibition the most important cultural event in London in the coming days. They consider this exhibition the final chance to see the Golden Pharaoh collections in London.

After the end of the Tutankhamun exhibition tour around the world, these treasures will be exhibited at its permanent place of the Grand Egyptian Museum overlooking the Great Pyramids of Giza.

London is the third stop of the exhibition of Tutankhamun after opening in its first and second stops in Los Angeles, USA, and Paris.

The exhibition in Paris has set a new record for the number of visitors to cultural exhibitions in France with more than 1.4 million visitors.

The exhibition will continue in London until early May.

During the last few days, the British capital celebrated the young king and his possessions. It came as a guest to London after the absence of more than a decade. The last exhibition of Tutankhamun in London was in 2007 and 1972, where more than 1.7 million people visited it.

The streets, main squares, shop fronts, buildings, metro and train stations in London are decorated with huge banners depicting the face of the young king and some of his belongings.

The exhibition includes 150 artifacts of the young king's holdings, including a number of gilt shawabti statues, wooden boxes, canopic pots, a wooden Ka statue, and alabaster pots.
