Denise Welch says King Charles should ‘read the room’ ahead of coronation

Denise Welch has expressed hope that King Charles will "read the room" when it comes to the plans for his official coronation to be crowned as the new monarch.

The Loose Women panellist, 64, appeared on Wednesday's instalment of the ITV daytime show alongside host Jane Moore, Linda Robson and Brenda Edwards.

Since the death of Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday, September 8, coverage has been dedicated to the UK's longest reigning monarch and has continued following her funeral on Monday.

Yesterday's panellists began discussing the scale of the next royal occasion which will be the coronation of King Charles, expected to take place at some point in 2023.

Both Denise and Linda, 64, agreed that the coronation should follow suit with the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, using local street parties to celebrate the momentous occasion.

Former Waterloo Road actress believes the event should be "scaled back" and requested the celebration only lasts "just one day."

"I think it's all has been quite a lot, this last 10 days, but I think that it definitely will be a celebration," she said.

The former Coronation Street actress added: "But I think that Charles, hopefully as the new King, will read the room and realise that although the money spent on this type of pageantry and pomp obviously brings a lot of revenue into this country, I think that it should be a slightly scaled back affair.

"And like you say, celebrated more with the street party. Also please, can I put a request into King Charles that it's just one day because I found that, you know, a lot – 10 days of a media blackout."

While Denise has openly admitted that she "adores the Queen," the Hollyoaks star called it "total insanity" that an event she was attending was cancelled due to the 10 day mourning period.

Taking to Twitter, she penned: "My friend has been forced to cancel a small charity event I was involved in raising money for people struggling to feed their families in Manchester. Many months of preparation. This is total insanity after the suffering of the last few years and I adored the Queen!!"
