Kate's Last Engagement? All Royals To Attend 60th Anniversary of Coronation

Kate to attend ceremony next Tuesday, which could be her final public appearance before birth of baby

Kate has nothing else in the diary, so speculation is mounting that when she joins all the other Royals to attend a service to celebrate sixty years since the Queen was crowned next Tuesday, it may be the last time we see her in public until the baby is born.

The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh will be joined at Westminster Abbey by all senior members of the Royal Family for a service marking the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty’s coronation in 1953.

Atendees so far confirmed include: Charles and Camilla, William and Kate, Prince Harry, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and Princess Anne.

Westminster Abbey is the nation’s coronation church, 38 coronations have been held in the Abbey since the coronation of William the Conqueror in 1066.

Westminster Abbey was closed for five months before the 1953 Coronation for extensive work to transform the Church for the ceremony, the first to be televised.
