What else are people across the South East doing to celebrate the coronation?

It's not just about big screens. People across the region have been busy getting ready to mark the historic event in various creative ways.

Bell ringers in Twyford have been recruiting new bell ringers ahead of the big day, while knitters in Dover have been busy creating a Royal blanket.

A confectioner from Brighton has even made a life sized bust of King Charles - out of chocolate.

The South East is also leading the way in terms of street parties, with Hampshire and Kent expected to host the most in the whole country.
