If its on I'll glance at it (weather looks shit, Mrs will have it on).

There's a danger she'll find the prince Andrew/Epstein commemorative mug that I've added to her collection this weekend.

Will be working during the spectacle but, seeing as I have spent the majority of my working life in uniformed service, I would probably swear along if I were at home watching the TV

Can't bring myself to get worked up over it, but it is a load of weird bollocks. If it brings some joy to some people that's good I suppose. I'm certainly happy to get a day off work (although it would have been nicer if it wasn't in a month already full of days off, if I'm being picky!)

I will watch because its history, I doubt I will be around to see another one TBH.

Will have a few drinks just because I fancy them but I am by no means a royalist.

I'm not sure if the timing is annoying or not. We already have 2 Bank Holidays in May so in some ways it would have been nice to have it in June or July to break the gap between May and August up a bit.

That said, I'm using the time for visiting. My wife has been baking a LOT of coronation quiches and trifles for various events she arranges for people in sheltered housing and whilst they are delicious, I'm getting bored of testing them now! Smiley

I think I am in the same camp as Nemo, I've avoided the news a lot this week as I also think it's 'a load of weird bollocks'. But I know it brings joy to loads of people also so que sera.

Looking at the weather I suspect (much as with Brenda's funeral) that I will have a ride out on my bike in the morning for a few hours (exploiting the quieter roads) and then come home and likely watch whatever is on. When is the crowning bit scheduled for?

I did mention to the missus that I should probably watch it as I may not see another, but she pointed out that Brian is already 74 so who knows.

My old man went to London to see the Queens coronation, so this will be his second. He's at home this time though.

The royals annoy me, there's too many of them on the gravy train (and births are ahead of deaths unfortunately) and their bill to the taxpayer is grotesque, but as they're here may as well make the most of the pomp which brings joy to many.

Pomp is what it sounds like, pompous. I'm not fond of "pomp" in any form personally

Not the slightest bit interested.  Ruined my Saturday football, yet Tottenham play in London and can still kick off at 3oíclock on Saturday. If they can so can we, fuck the coronation.
