How can I watch the coronation at home?

For those who do not plan on venturing out for the celebrations, they can watch it all on television from the comfort of their sofa.

ITV News At Ten anchor Tom Bradby will front ITV's coverage alongside Julie Etchingham.

Presenters Mary Nightingale, Nina Hossain, Charlene White, and James Mates will also be stationed at key locations during the six hour-plus broadcast.

What other events are happening over coronation weekend?

Coronation celebrations are planned over an extended Bank Holiday weekend with "global music icons and contemporary stars" due at Windsor Castle for a concert on Sunday, broadcast live by the BBC.

That day, people are being invited to gather for a "coronation big lunch" overseen and organised by the Big Lunch team at the Eden Project. The Queen Consort has been patron of the Big Lunch since 2013.

Monday, a bank holiday, has been set aside for volunteering and is being billed as "the big help out".

Organised by the Together Coalition and a wide range of partners such as the Scouts, the Royal Voluntary Service and faith groups from across the UK, the big help out aims to highlight the positive impact volunteering has on communities.

The DCMS said tens of thousands of people are expected to visit London to experience the coronation.

Arrangements for the coronation, like those for the Queen's funeral in September, will be diplomatically sensitive, given the presence of leaders from scores of different countries.
