Street parties are being arranged and community events are being planned as the British public celebrate the crowning of the new King. There will also be an extra bank holiday and pubs will be able to stay open for an extra two hours on the Friday and Saturday so there will be plenty of time to celebrate. Beacons are being lit across the country.
Schools around the country have hosted parties to commemorate the momentous event. Celebrities have shared pictures of their children dressed up in royal outfits to celebrate the big day on their Instagram platforms.
Paris Fury, wife of Tyson Fury, shared an Instagram story of her quickly sewing an outfit for her son to attend ‘King and Queen Day’ at his nursery. She captioned the video: “Been really busy this week so had a quick scan around the house to make an outfit this morning. Superman’s cape is now a royal robe!”. Son, Prince Adonis Amaziah, looked very happy with his outfit as he donned a red cape, a thick gold chain and a royal crown. Paris commented after making sure the crown fitted perfectly: “Now it fits, the Gypsy Kings hat”. She then posted a story of his complete look with the theme tune of The National Anthem playing in the background as he showed off his outfit.
Paris is not the only parent preparing her children for the coronation. Former Corrie star, Helen Flanagan, also got on board as her children were very excited about the King’s coronation.

It’s always been Toy Story over Frozen, dinosaurs over Barbies, twenty hairclips over two. I hope she always follows what makes her happy”.
