They include King Charles and the newly titled Queen Camilla, who will make their appearance following the King’s crowning in Westminster Abbey.

They will be joined by working members of the royal family.

That means there will be no place for Prince Harry, Meghan Markle or Prince Andrew.

William and Kate, the Prince and Princess of Wales, will be on the balcony alongside their three children – Prince George, nine; Princess Charlotte, seven and Prince Louis, four.

Also joining them are the new Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, Prince Edward and his wife Sophie.

Princess Anne and her husband Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence will also be there, The Mirror reports.

The Duke of Kent, 87, and Princess Alexandra, 86, will appear on the balcony as will the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester.

Events for the coronation will start on Saturday May 6 and continue over Sunday May 7 and Monday May 8, which has been declared a bank holiday.

The action-packed weekend will see King Charles and newly titled Queen Camilla arrive at Westminster Abbey in The King’s Procession on Saturday morning.

This will be followed by the coronation service conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The service will “reflect the monarch’s role today and look towards the future, while being rooted in longstanding traditions and pageantry”.

After the service, the newly-crowned King and Queen will return to the Palace in a larger ceremonial parade known as the Coronation Procession.

This is expected to include ­thousands of troops, military bands and other members of the Royal Family.

After the procession the Royal Family are expected to appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

It has already been suggested that family members appearing on the balcony will be limited to working royals as part of the King’s “slimmed down” new-look monarchy.

A blockbuster concert ­featuring global pop icons, who may include Sir Paul McCartney and Queen, is also planned at Windsor Castle.

Thousands of people all over the UK will be encouraged to stage street parties in another stunning show of pageantry to the world.

Iconic locations around the UK will be illuminated with projections, lasers and drone displays as the “centrepiece” of celebrations to mark His Majesty’s crowning in a very modern way.

Royal experts predicted the event will “dwarf” even last year’s ­spectacular celebrations for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
