The countdown to the coronation has already begun! But there's still a big opportunity to celebrate in cross stitching style with some of our exuberant patterns and jubilant designs.
The official coronation ceremony of King Charles III will be a special moment for our new monarch and his accession to the throne, as well as an incredibly historical day that will be documented, examined and remembered for many years to come.
The day itself will be filled with lustrous celebrations and street parties, along with time-honoured rituals and all the pomp and ceremony that you would expect from such an epochal day. It is also stated that 2,200 guests will be in attendance at the ceremony at Westminster Abbey, while around 27 million people in the UK are expected to be watching the ceremony live on television.
At Past Impressions, we're donning our very own creative crowns and celebrating this momentous occasion with a range of truly splendid cross stitch patterns that have been entirely inspired by the ceremony and surrounding traditions.
