Welcome back to the Right Royal Podcast! In this week's episode, we are all aboard the hype train for the upcoming unique moment in royal history, King Charles' coronation!

The historical coronation will be the first of its kind in Britain since the late Queen's coronation 70 years ago – and is sure to be full of pomp and ceremony. To kick things off, we are joined by our royal editor Emily Nash, who tells us what the illustrious ceremony means to the royal family, and to share predictions from the day.

LISTEN: Why Charles is being strictly with the coronation guest list 

Meanwhile, Majesty magazine editor Joe Little also sits down with us to talk about some of the more mythical elements of the coronation – from anointed oils to 13th century crowns to the stone of destiny (yes, really), while New York Times bestselling author and fashion expert Elizabeth Holmes chats about possible fashion choices on the day – and if we'll be seeing the royals stepping out in tiaras.
