Communities and members of the royal family come together to celebrate King Charles III’s Coronation
The Coronation Big Lunch has seen neighbours and communities come together to share friendship, food and fun as part of the celebrations over the Coronation weekend. More than 65,000 Coronation Big Lunch events took place in all four corners of the UK.
The Big Lunch was an official part of the Coronation Weekend. Established in 2009, The Big Lunch brings neighbours and communities together to share friendship, food and fun.
Since 2015, Big Lunch organisers have raised an incredible £70 million for good causes. Her Majesty The Queen has been Patron of The Big Lunch since 2013.
The Prince and Princess of Wales attended the Big Lunch in Windsor and The Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh attended a Big Lunch in Cranleigh in Surrey.
At Cranleigh Village Hall, Their Royal Highnesses viewed the Coronation Craft Market, and the High Street where a fun fair will be taking place.
The Duke and Duchess joined residents and representatives from the Royal British Legion, the Scouts and the Guides – of which Her Royal Highness is President – for the Big Coronation Lunch.
The Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence attended a community street party in Swindon.
Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie of York joined a Coronation Big Lunch in Chalfont St Giles, Buckinghamshire.
Their Royal Highnesses met the event organisers and members of the community enjoying the lunch on the village green including representatives from All Together Community, a group established during the pandemic which distributed over 10000 food parcels to vulnerable people and continues to offer the same service along with running a community fridge.
