As she stepped out of the carriage, Lorraine looked effortlessly graceful in her flowing polka dot dress which perfectly matched her heels. She showcased her natural beauty, styling her brunette locks in soft curls that shaped her face. To the cameras, Lorraine beamed brightly as she got into the mood for the Coronation.

With huge enthusiasm, the star has been planning her own special event to mark the milestone - a Coronation garden party.

Kate said: "Lorraine is having a Coronation special garden party, which I’ve been invited to."

The queen of breakfast TV has been sharing her excitement for the Coronation for months. Having met King Charles on several occasions, Lorraine spoke truthfully about her opinion of him. She told PRIMA in March: “I’ve met King Charles a few times and he’s a very genuine person. I’m really looking forward to the Coronation in May. We certainly do pomp and circumstance very well in this country.”

Also, Lorraine has been discussing the Coronation on her daytime show but there was one thing that left her feeling disappointed in recent weeks. While the Coronation Concert promises a dazzling performance from huge celebrities, the TV presenter couldn’t hide her disappointment at the news that Ed Sheeran wasn’t going to be at the historic event. She said with a shrug, “I would’ve thought Ed would be at the concert but…”
