A global audience of hundreds of millions of people is expected to watch the historic moment King Charles and his wife Camilla are crowned

The ceremony, which will be seen in person by thousands inside Westminster Abbey, is only the third coronation of a British monarch to be broadcast on television.

The coronation of Charles's mother Queen Elizabeth, in 1953, was watched by more than 20 million TV viewers, an event which outnumbered the radio audience for such an event for the first time.

The previous coronation, of King Charles's grandfather George VI in 1937, at a time when television access was minimal, is thought to have been seen by just 10,000 people.

More than 30 screens will be erected in cities and towns around the UK for Saturday's ceremony.
