Oviso celebrates the Coronation in style

The Coronation celebrations have kicked off at Oviso in Derby’s Cathedral Quarter as the team enjoys decorated cupcakes, crown cookies and fizz!

Even Cooper, Oviso's office pooch, managed to celebrate, get dressed for the occasion, and get a coronation doggie treat or two!

The Coronation Ceremony takes place on the 6th of May at 11am at Westminster Abbey, with The King and Queen Consort, Camilla, arriving at the Abbey in a procession from Buckingham Palace.

Brits will be celebrating in style with street parties up and down the country and an estimated 350 million people are expected to watch the event around the world.

Some favourite Coronation party food you may expect to find are sausage rolls, pies, pasties and quiche, to deviled eggs, chicken tikka skewers, scotch eggs and mini fish and chips.

For those with a sweet tooth, some favourites are trifle, sticky toffee pudding and plenty of cakes.

Here are some fun Coronation facts our team has put together:

  1. Royal fans will be getting out their best china and bunting, and raising a toast to the King as councils in England have approved 3,087 road closures for gatherings.
  2. Data from road management company one.network shows that parties will take place up and down the country and cover a total of 263 miles!
  3. The Imperial State Crown is made of gold and set with 2,868 diamonds, 17 sapphires, 11 emeralds, 269 pearls, and 4 rubies!
  4. King Charles III on an average day-to-day, enjoys eating healthy meals that include wholegrains, fresh fruits and vegetables. Foraged mushrooms, organic eggs, cheese and crackers, and locally-raised in-season lamb but the King follows a mostly plant-based diet.
  5. The King also loves to drink the occasional dram of Scotch whisky and a martini. For a civilised cuppa, he likes to drink Darjeeling tea with honey and milk.
  6. One hundred heads of state have accepted invitations to the Coronation, with a guest list of 2,300 which includes UK parliamentarians, celebrities and a large number of community and charity representatives. The US president, who is unable to attend, will be represented by the first lady, Jill Biden, who will be joined by the French president, Emmanuel Macron.

Enjoy the Coronation celebrations, whatever you are doing!
