Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will play significant roles in King Charles' coronation.

The siblings are expected to accompany their parents, the Prince and Princess of Wales, in a carriage behind the monarch and Queen Camilla for the coronation procession at Westminster Abbey on May 6.

George (9), Charlotte (7), Louis (4) and their parents are joined by the Princess Royal, her husband, Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and the Duke accompanied by Kent and Princess Alexandra, according to The Times newspaper. It is believed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will not attend. The plans also do not include roles for Prince Andrew or his daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.

Charles' coronation will fall on a Saturday and the following day Windsor Castle will host a concert which will be broadcast around the world, with thousands of afternoon street parties across Britain. This is followed by a public holiday on Monday, May 8th, giving millions of people a day off from work. The ceremony begins with the coronation of Camilla before Charles is formally proclaimed monarch with the crown of St Edward being placed on his head by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

A procession takes the king, who is to be anointed with holy oil, past thousands of people to Buckingham Palace, where he will wave to fans with members of the royal family on the balcony. The plans follow reports last year that Charles intended to have a smaller coronation compared to that of his late mother. Back then, 8,251 people crowded into Westminster Abbey to celebrate her accession to the throne.
