Officials are set to shell out around £1million in order to make this possible, in what will no doubt be a momentous day in the UK, and comes almost 70 years after the coronation of the late Queen Elizabeth II.

Culture secretary Lucy Fraser said the coronation, set to be held at Westminster Abbey will be a ‘momentous occasion’ - with world leaders descending on London to watch the ceremony.

Ms Frazer said: “The coronation will be a magical moment that brings people together to celebrate the best of Britain over a special weekend in May. These big screens, in major locations in towns and cities in the four nations of the UK, will make it easier for everyone to take part and have a memorable experience to mark this exciting and historic event.”
