HM Lord-Lieutenant, David Fursdon hopes everyone in Devon will celebrate the Coronation, with hundreds of events being planned on the county’s streets and community spaces, ranging from traditional street parties and lunches to live music events, fun-days, and galas.

He said: “The Coronation is a rare event that marks the crowning of our Constitutional Monarch, in this case Charles III. It is also a time of celebration for communities throughout the UK.

“The service itself will look to the future while being rooted in longstanding tradition and pageantry.

“We send our loyal greetings and warmest congratulations to His Majesty King Charles and Her Majesty Queen Camilla on this very special weekend.”

The Lord-Lieutenant’s office has shared a message from Buckingham Palace on behalf of the King and Queen.
