PEOPLE in Glasgow have the chance to send their good wishes to the King and Queen Consort ahead of the Coronation this weekend.

A Book of Congratulations has been opened in Glasgow City Chambers as part of a series of events to mark the historic occasion.

Citizens can leave their personal messages for King Charles III and Camilla, the Queen Consort, this week ahead of their coronations on Saturday.

Lord Provost Jaqueline McLaren was the first to sign the book with a message from the city.

She wrote: “Congratulations from Glasgow to His Majesty King Charles III and Queen Camilla on their imminent coronations.

“I wish you a reign of longevity, wisdom and happiness and look forward to welcoming you back to the city very soon.”

Glasgow Times:

The book is open on the ground floor of the City Chambers until Friday, between 9am and 5pm.

As Lord Lieutenant of Glasgow, Jacqueline McLaren will represent the city at the Coronation in Westminster Abbey on Saturday.

She will join the royal family and more than 2000 guests, including Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, First Minister Humza Yousaf, 100 heads of state and community and charity champions who have been invited.

The Coronation will include the Royal Procession from Buckingham Palace.

In addition to the guests in the abbey, 400 young people representing charitable organisations nominated by the King, the Queen Consort and the UK Government will have the opportunity to watch the service and processions from inside St Margaret’s Church, Westminster Abbey.
