…By Lola Smith for TDPel Media. According to research, over half of Brits going on holiday during the coronation bank holiday weekend have deliberately chosen resorts and destinations that will be screening the royal event.

However, 15% still plan to find a British pub to celebrate the festivities, while nearly three in ten plan to pack their own decorations.

The research, which was commissioned by easyJet and polled 2,000 adults, also found that one in three holidaymakers have reserved tables at local bars to ensure they secure a prime view of the event on a big plasma screen.

One in ten plan to book a table once they arrive at their destination, with a third planning to eat at a British pub or restaurant on May 6 to commemorate the day.

In a nod to those celebrating the coronation from a beach, the world’s first Buckingham Palace sandcastle bucket was created for easyJet Holidays and unveiled on West Wittering Beach.

The seaside accessory measures three feet wide by 0.8 feet high by 0.6 feet deep and can hold three to four kilograms of sand.

The research findings show the continued popularity of the British monarchy, with many holidaymakers eager to celebrate the coronation of King Charles and Queen Camilla while on holiday.

The fact that over half of those surveyed chose destinations specifically for the purpose of watching the royal spectacle indicates the extent to which the British monarchy remains a central part of the national identity.

Moreover, the research findings also suggest that people are finding creative ways to celebrate the coronation while on holiday, such as packing their own decorations and creating sandcastles in the shape of Buckingham Palace.

This shows how the monarchy continues to inspire a sense of community and shared celebration, even among those who are away from home.

Overall, the research provides insight into the enduring appeal of the British monarchy and the role it plays in shaping national identity and culture.
