The Telegraph will mark King Charles III’s Coronation with a wide range of editorial initiatives including features, supplements, live coverage, puzzles and podcasts involving a number of our senior journalists and expert commentators.
The Telegraph’s Coronation liveblog will follow all the major events and news over the course of the Bank Holiday weekend. The Telegraph will be providing authoritative reporting, analysis and commentary over the weekend from our royal reporters, as well as journalists from politics, features, opinion, lifestyle and fashion.

To help our readers celebrate the Coronation both in the UK and further afield, a range of digital features will be published on our dedicated digital hub. These include all the details of the event itself and how subscribers can host their own celebratory events. On May 6, readers will be able to play a variety of Coronation-themed puzzles in print and online including the Cryptic Crossword, PlusWord, Panagram, a Pub Quiz, Wordsearch and more. Subscribers will also be able to share memories and record their well wishes for the new sovereign in The Telegraph’s online book of congratulations.
To mark the Coronation, a new dedicated three episode podcast series, Being the King, presented by Simon Heffer, will be released on May 4. The episodes will focus on the King and the Constitution, the Commonwealth and his character. Special guests include Sir Nicholas Soames, a childhood friend of the King, and Sir Stephen Lamport, Private Secretary to the King as Prince of Wales in the 1990s.
