The Prince and Princess of Wales, William and Catherine, did a surprised walkabout at Windsor Castle ahead of tonight’s Coronation concert as part of the Coronation Big Lunch. After yesterday’s glorious Coronation service at Westminster Abbey, today is the day for community celebration through ‘Big Lunch’. A patronage of Queen Camilla, The Big Lunch was founded in 2009. It is the UK’s largest annual get-together for neighbours that are held every summer over a weekend with the idea of “community, friendship and fun”.
Tonight, Windsor Castle will see a grand musical celebration to mark the Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla. Thousands of Royal fans gathered outside the castle on the miles-long ‘Long Walk’ of Windsor Castle which is a few footsteps away from The Prince and Princess of Wales’ Windsor residence ‘Adelaide Cottage’.
The Royal couple stepped out to say hello to the well-wishers. They were received by the gathering with huge cheers and a warm welcome.

People were so surprised that when Catherine asked a young child “What has been the best thing so far?”, he smiles and replied, “You”.
While The Prince and Princess of Wales were at the Long Walk saying hello to the fans, the other members of the Royal family were also out and about celebrating the Big lunch.
