King Charles III and his wife Queen Consort Camilla will be crowned at Westminster Abbey in London on May 6 in presence of senior members of the royal family.

Buckingham Palace has confirmed that the service will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The guest list for the coronation has yet to be released but it is expected to include immediate heirs to the throne and senior working royals. Prince William, Princess Kate and their children to attend the ceremony.

Prince Edward and Princess Anne are also likely to be in attendance with their significant, as well as King Charles' estranged brother Prince Andrew,  although it is expected that he won't be allowed to wear his military uniform, or be invited onto the Balcony.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are yet to confirm their attendance at the coronation, given their stretched relationship with the royal family - and the fact that the ceremony lands on the same day as their son, Archie's, birthday.

There are speculations that all working members of the Firm would be allowed to appear on the Balcony, while Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex and his uncle Prince Andrew, the Duke of York (if they attend the events) won't take place with the working royals for a balcony photograph.
