THOUSANDS of Brits will be given free tickets to King Charles’ Jubilee bash.
The plans for the monarch’s three-day party have been revealed – including two royal processions in central London.
Thousands of Brits will get their hands on free tickets to King Charles’ Coronation concert
Thousands of people all over the UK will be encouraged to stage street parties in another stunning show of pageantry to the world.
A blockbuster concert featuring global pop icons, who may include Sir Paul McCartney and Queen, is also planned at Windsor Castle.
And fans across the country will have the chance to get their hands on tickets.
Buckingham Palace said last night that a national ballot will be held by the BBC, offering “several thousand” pairs of tickets to lucky Brits.
It did not offer any further details on when the ballots will be opened, but suggested people keep their eyes on the BBC.
Meanwhile, the plans for the Jubilee have been revealed.
The two parades on Coronation Day will conclude with members of the Royal Family — including the newly-crowned King and his Queen Consort — waving from the balcony at Buckingham Palace.
Iconic locations around the UK will be illuminated with projections, lasers and drone displays as the “centrepiece” of celebrations to mark His Majesty’s crowning in a very modern way.
Royal experts predicted the event will “dwarf” even last year’s spectacular celebrations for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Some detail was held back such as how the King and Queen Consort will travel from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey for the ceremony — and back again.
But it is expected they will be in the traditional gold carriage at some stage.
The events will take place on Saturday May 6, Sunday May 7 and Monday May 8, which has been declared a bank holiday to mark the Coronation.
Palace courtiers have planned the weekend, with the King’s blessing, to include people all over the country — not just those who aim to flock to the capital.
It was revealed in recent days that King Charles is planning to make a major change to the Coronation.
The monarch is said to be donning his military uniform when he is crowned – rather than the old-fashioned silk stockings and breeches.
