Buckingham Palace announced, Saturday, revealed the details of the three-day King Charles III’s coronation across the country.

The coronation will take place on Saturday, May 6, with the “Coronation Big Lunch.” On the following day the “Coronation Concert” will take place.

On the third day, Monday, the public will be invited to join “The Big Help Out” by volunteering in their communities.

Michelle Donelan, UK Secertary for Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport said: “Everyone is invited to join in, on any day."

Donelan added: “Whether that is by hosting a special street party, watching the Coronation ceremony or spectacular concert on TV, or stepping forward during The Big Help Out to help causes that matter to them.”

The coronation itself will be “a solemn religious service, as well as an occasion for celebration and pageantry,” and it will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.

Charles and his wife Camilla, the Queen Consort, will arrive at Westminster Abbey in procession from Buckingham Palace, known as “The King’s Procession,” and return later in a larger ceremonial procession, known as “The Coronation Procession,” accompanied by other members of the royal family.

After that, they will appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace to conclude the day’s events.

The day after the coronation, May 7, thousands of events are expected to take place across the country as part of the “Coronation Big Lunch,” while as-yet unnamed “global music icons and contemporary stars,” will come together for a “Coronation Concert” held on Windsor Castle’s East Lawn, the palace said.

The concert will be attended by a public audience composed of volunteers from the King and Queen Consort’s charity affiliations.

Well-known locations across the country will also be lit up using projections, lasers, drone displays and illuminations as part of the concert.

The celebrations will conclude on the bank holiday Monday with hundreds of activities planned by local community groups for “The Big Help Out.”

“It is going to be a festival of volunteering,” said Jon Knight, Chief Executive of the Together Coalition.

“The aim is to create a legacy of better-connected communities long beyond the Coronation itself.”
