However, people have been asked to avoid turning up before 6am, and once the viewing areas reach capacity, they will be closed.

Alternatively, the coronation will be broadcast live on screens at Hyde Park, Green Park, and St James’s Park.

There will be four screens in Hyde Park, with two near the Old Football Pitches, one near The Cockpit, and one near The Boathouse Lawn.

The screening site will open at 5am, an hour before the viewing areas along the procession route open.

The screens at Green Park and St James’s Park will be smaller.
