Shwmae and welcome to this week’s blog! This week we are celebrating the Coronation of His Royal Majesty King Charles III. We hope you have a safe and enjoyable Royal weekend. 

King Charles is set to be crowned alongside the Queen at a royal ceremony in Westminster Abbey this weekend on Saturday 6th May. 

The event will form part of a long Bank Holiday weekend filled with celebrations for the new King, from street parties and afternoon tea to concerts and picnics in the park. 

After the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, the King ascended the throne making history as the oldest new monarch in British history. 

The much-anticipated Coronation weekend, which is code-named Operation Golden Orb have been revealed and here the Milford Haven School blog includes some fun activities, local events and and insight into how MHS have been celebrating this historic event.
