Hundreds of eager Brits tune in to Coronation live stream hours before it starts

Hundreds of over-eager Brits seemingly unable to experience the Coronation of King Charles in person are already tuning into the Palace's live stream – despite nothing actually happening.

The official Royal Family YouTube channel has set live its stream ahead of the event tomorrow (May 6).

And despite the fact that all you can currently watch is a 50-second advert about the event followed by a holding image, it hasn't stopped more than 200 people already tuning in.

The holding image merely states: “Watch Live: The Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla'.”

A pop-up sidebar then appears telling you how many hours left until the event – 23 hours at the time of writing – along with a “Notify Me” button.

Currently, 205 people are sitting, waiting for the event to kick off.

The Royal Family has actually turned off the comment feature on the channel, so fans waiting with baited breath can't even chat to each other.

However, the ones sitting in the comfort of their own home, watching a holding image might have the right idea if the weather report for the big event is anything to go by.

Currently, Saturday is forecast to be a wet day – giving those attending life a very damp experience.

Met Office Deputy Chief Forecaster, Steven Keates, said: “On Saturday we will see some heavy rain moving into the southwest in the early hours which will move northeastwards through the morning.

“This is likely to bring some rain to London by around lunchtime as it spreads east and north across roughly the southern third of the UK.

“Further north in Scotland, northern England and Northern Ireland it will be a day of sunshine and showers before the more persistent rain moves northwards overnight. It will feel humid, especially in the south, with highs of 18C possible in London.”
