Coronation Big Lunch: Brits tuck into quiches as they toast King Charles at parties up and down the country | The Sun

BRITS up and down the country are celebrating King Charles' coronation by tucking into quiches with friends, family and neighbours.

Thousands are taking part in Big Lunch celebrations to mark the beginning of King Charles’ reign.

More than 3,700 lunch parties to mark King Charles III's coronation are happening across Britain.

Later today the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh are attending a Big Lunch at Cranleigh in Surrey while Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie will attend one in Windsor.

In late January, Princess Eugenie revealed that she and husband Jack Brooksbank is expecting her second child this summer.

It comes as royal fans have already started arriving in Windsor hours before the coronation concert at 8pm.

People draped with Union flags and dressed in Union flag dresses have been flooding off trains at the station.

The King and Queen will join around 20,000 members of the public at the coronation concert where, along with other family members, they will see performances by Take That, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie.

Singers Perry and Richie were among the stars at Saturday's coronation ceremony in Westminster Abbey.

The show in Windsor, hosted by Paddington and Downton Abbey actor Hugh Bonneville, will see Hollywood star Tom Cruise, Dynasty actress Dame Joan Collins, adventurer Bear Grylls and singer Sir Tom Jones appear via video message.

Classical acts including Andrea Bocelli, Welsh bass-baritone Sir Bryn Terfel and Chinese pianist Lang Lang will perform too.
