As the U.K. prepares for the coronation of King Charles III and his wife Camilla, the Queen Consort, on Saturday, the Prince and Princess of Wales are visiting local businesses to learn about their preparations.
Prince William and Kate traveled on the London Underground Thursday to the Dog and Duck pub in Soho to meet with local publicans and business owners before the coronation bank holiday, Kensington Palace confirmed.
Part of their trip on the tube included meeting some Transport for London workers to hear about how they have prepared for the busy weekend.
The royal couple got off the Elizabeth Line at Tottenham Court Road to visit the pub and thank people who will be working hard across coronation weekend, which will be filled with fanfare and festivities.
As part of the Waleses' visit, they heard from local businesses about the hospitality sector and how London's night-time economy is faring.
They were met with various fans and well-wishers on their way in and out of the Dog and Duck, where the royal couple spent nearly 30 minutes shaking hands with the massive crowds that assembled along the street.
Saturday's coronation will be the U.K.'s first in 70 years. Charles and Camilla are expected to make their way along a processional route from from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey in the horse-drawn Diamond Jubilee State Coach, where they will be crowned before a crowd of approximately 2,000 people.
The coronation will also be broadcast across British media outlets, as well as in the United States.
ABC News and "Good Morning America" will have special TV coverage of the coronation on Saturday, May 6, from 5 to 10 a.m. ET. The ceremony will also be available to stream on ABCNews.com and GoodMorningAmerica.com, mobile apps, social platforms and over-the-top (OTT) services.
