Official celebrations will then conclude with a star-studded Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle on Sunday night.

Pubs in England and Wales will be allowed to stay open longer than usual on both Saturday and Sunday night for punters to celebrate the extraordinary occasion.

And finally, Britain will round off the festivities with a special bank holiday on Monday.

The Prince of Wales will take to the stage and give a speech at the coronation concert, Kensington Palace has said.

On Sunday, the Palace tweeted footage of William walking up to a microphone during behind-the-scenes preparations.

A voice can be heard saying: “OK, Prince of Wales. It’s time for your rehearsal” before William strides out towards the microphone.

It is no longer possible to get tickets to Sunday's Coronation concert.

Members of the public who did obtain the limited number of tickets via a ballot will join volunteers from the King and Queen’s favourite charities in the audience.

The Coronation Concert begins at 8pm on Sunday and will be hosted by Paddington bear and Downton Abbey actor Hugh Bonneville.

Windsor Castle has had a makeover for the historic celebration. The Coronation Concert stage is expected to take the shape of the Union Flag, which will fan out through the crowd.
