Almost 90 per cent of GAY TIMES readers won’t tune in to watch the coronation of British monarch King Charles III and his wife Camilla, according to a survey of our audience.
The event, which is due to take place on 6 May, will be held in Westminster Abbey, London. Although the exact cost of the coronation is not shared by Buckingham Palace, unofficial estimates cited by the BBC estimate that it will run up a staggering bill of between £50 million and £100 million ($63-125 million).
Most news channels and radio stations will run rolling coverage of the coronation throughout the day, though almost nine in 10 GAY TIMES readers will not be watching it in any capacity, according to a new poll of our Instagram audience.
Approximately 14,789 (87 per cent) of the 17,066 people who took part in the survey said they would not be tuning in, while 2,277 (13 per cent) said they plan on watching.
