Saturday May 6, 2023 will be a momentous day in British history as King Charles III is officially crowned at Westminster Abbey, and with blanket coverage of the event on UK media channels, for those who don’t wish to see the King’s Coronation, solace can be found on Channel 4 who will offer alternative programming, including the 2023 Monaco E-Prix.
The procession will leave the Buckingham Palace at 10:20am UK time on Saturday and make its way to Westminster Abbey with the service scheduled to begin at 11am UK time, with the return procession starting at 1:30pm UK time. The King, Queen Consort and members of the Royal Family will then appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony at around 2:15pm.
In the UK, Channel 4 will not show a minute of the Coronation, instead airing re-runs of ‘The King of Queens’, ‘Frasier’ and Rowan Atkinson movie ‘Johnny English Strikes Again’. Then one of the jewels of the motorsport world will take centre stage as coverage of the 2023 Monaco E-Prix begins at 1:30pm UK time on Channel 4, for Round 9 of the Formula E season.
The famous Casino Square, Mirabeau and the Nouvelle chicane will provide fans of motorsport with plenty of action as the Gen3 Formula E cars take to the streets of the Principality.
