How You Can Watch The King’s Coronation In West Central Missouri
I'll admit I haven't actually been paying attention to what's been going on regarding the coronation of King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla. I actually thought the coronation was taking place in August, but no, I was wrong. It's actually this weekend. If you're a fan of the British Royal Family here's how can experience it. One warning though, you better get a nap in this afternoon, or at least have a couple of energy drinks at the ready.
KMOS-TV from the University of Central Missouri is devoting a significant amount of time to the coronation of King Charles III starting at 1:30 AM CDT Saturday, May 6.
KMOS is offering viewers live uninterrupted coverage of the coronation from the BBC beginning at 1:30 AM on KMOS 6.1 and available online on the KMOS website and the PBS app. Coverage will run from 1:30 AM - 9:00 AM CDT and will include the crowning of King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla at Westminster Abbey.
It's only the second time in British history that the coronation has been televised.
KMOS Television is also offering some other coronation-related programming throughout the weekend:

Saturday evening May 6, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM CDT.
