3 Activities the whole family can get involved in for King Charles III Coronation

- Wed 03 May 2023

The Coronation of Their Majesties The King and The Queen Consort will take place on Saturday 6th May 2023, almost 70 years since the last Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in June 1953. As for many, this will be the first Coronation people have lived through, a very special moment in history for the world to watch. We have put together a few ideas to get everyone involved in the celebrations!

  • 1- Decorate your own crown! Find out some interesting facts about how Royal crowns have evolved over time, get together your arts and crafts and create your very own crowns to wear whilst watching the special events on May 6th and why not keep it on for the afternoon street party if there is one near you. All you will need is some brightly coloured paper, gold or silver card and tissue paper to make a crown fit for a royal!
  • 2- Try making The King and The Queen Consort’s recipe of choice. Whether you are heading to a street party or celebrating from your own home the ‘Coronation Quiche’ will make the perfect centrepiece to any table this upcoming Coronation weekend. The recipe creates a deep quiche with a crisp, light pastry case and delicate flavours of spinach, broad beans and fresh tarragon. To be eaten hot or cold with a green salad and boiled new potatoes – Click here to create the perfect Coronation Lunch!
  • 3- Create your own Coronation decorations! Create some triangular bunting templates, pick your fabric and get some bias binding to attach your bunting onto and there you have it! A fun activity for all the family to get involved in whilst also making your home or street party table look wonderfully patriotic.

If you decide to get creative with any of the above, we would love to see! Tag us in posts of your celebrations over the Coronation weekend on social media.
