Although the Scouts were in an adjacent building to where the coronation itself was taking place, they were still part of the ceremony.

After the coronation, Scouts greeted HRH King Charles III to wish him a long happy reign.

Joshua was one of the 50 Scouts selected to attend the coronation.

Joshua from Warwickshire Scouts said: "I was able to be a part of history. I feel incredibly lucky to be one of the few people who attended the private screening of the coronation service.

"This would not have been possible without Scouts.

“Being a part of the Scout community continues to open amazing doors for me – which I am forever grateful for.

"As well as coming together to celebrate this momentous occasion, it was so great that we were able to support various activities and general management throughout the event.’

The 50 Scouts were selected to represent half a million others around the UK to thank them for supporting the running of the coronation.

Scouts supported the coronation by assisting with things such as; helping with crowd stewarding, supporting the public, route lining and first aid services.

The Scouts were also responsible for managing the crowds at locations such as the big screen in St James Park, Hyde Park, Green Park, and the Admiralty Arch.
