Royal fans are gearing up for a weekend of dress-up parties, coronation quiche and bubbles. As the pageantry unfolds, Laura Waddilove will be at a coronation party in Sydney, and was looking forward to seeing the crowds gather in London for the coronation of King Charles III. "It's interesting to watch the whole ceremony unfold, and to see the crowds. I just love seeing the diversity in the crowd. It's like the royal family is everyone's family, that raw emotion is really, really something," she said. "And also Kate Middleton's dress, I can't wait to see what she's wearing." The Australian Monarchist League is holding events across the country from dinners to picnics to mark the coronation. Spokesperson Matthew Bannon said he was excited to watch this important occasion. "As a young student, I acknowledge that that the King's coronation is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the strength and stability that our constitutional monarchy provides," he said. If you didn't score an invite to one of the Monarchist League's $140 a ticket coronation dinners, here's some inspiration from around the country, for your own royal viewing party. In Wollongong, 81-year-old local Pat Bowman will be tuning in to the festivities, but it won't be her first coronation. Bowman attended Queen Elizabeth II's coronation as a schoolgirl in London in 1953. At the time, primary schoolers were asked to grow a daffodil bulb for the new Queen ahead of her coronation. In George's River Council, monarchists will share afternoon tea on Sunday, May 7, at the Carss Cottage Museum to celebrate King Charles III. The museum is currently displaying a souvenir program from the coronation of George the 6th in 1937 as well as cards in memoriam of Queen Victoria who died in 1901. In Ballarat, the Town Hall's historic bells will ring on Sunday from 1pm to acknowledge the new King and Ballarat's Town Crier Hedley Thompson will read a proclamation. Local bakery the Little Cupcake Shop will also be offering coronation themed sweet treats. In Bendigo the historic Shamrock Hotel are preparing to serve coronation quiche to royal watchers on May 6. The quiche is vegetarian and features tarragon and broad beans. It was chosen by the King and Queen Consort in conjunction with the royal chef Mark Flanagan. The iconic venue also has it's own royal history. The King and the late Princess Diana visited the Shamrock Hotel on a tour of Australia in 1986.
