To put it mildly, Saturday, May 6, 2023 will be one for the history books as King Charles III is crowned at Westminster Abbey in London. For the first coronation of a British monarch in 70 years, and the first of this century, HELLO! will be on hand for every moment — all the pomp and circumstance of the ceremony, the procession, the talked-about guests, the celebrations around town and the world, and the fashions. Joining HELLO! In London as we cover this once-in-a-generation event in all its dimensions is American author, multimedia reporter and royal expert Elizabeth Holmes, who wrote the 2020 New York Times bestseller HRH: So Many Thoughts on Royal Style.
A veteran journalist and former Wall Street Journal staffer, Elizabeth has covered politics, business, and style, and now writes about British royals, fashion, motherhood and more in her popular Substack So Many Thoughts and via her Instagram account, which boasts 200,000 followers. She is also contributing editor at Town & Country, and has been published in the New York Times, WSJ, Vanity Fair, and Real Simple.
Elizabeth will be on the ground in London with HELLO!'s video, social, and editorial team for Coronation Saturday to offer her unique expertise and commentary for HELLO!'s audience as well as her devoted followers and subscribers; look out for her post-event HELLO! guest column about her impressions of the experience, too.
"I am thrilled to be working with HELLO! on this historic occasion," Elizabeth tells us. "As a loyal reader for many years, I have long admired how the team at HELLO! covers the royal family. It's an honor to be invited to join their coverage of King Charles III's coronation."
What will Princess Kate wear? How will the ceremony and all its rituals be modernized? How will Prince Harry interact with his father, brother, and the rest of the royal family? What will the scene on the streets of London be like? Check in early and often with HELLO! for all your coronation needs.
