A nighttime rehearsal in central London for the coronation of King Charles III, which will take place this weekend.

After 70 years as heir to the throne, the Prince of Wales will officially become King Charles III this weekend.

Millions of people will be watching the pageantry and ceremony, including two British transplants who are currently in Idaho. Cathy Rushton and Victoria Sunderland are both Daughters of the British Empire and they’re making big plans for the event.

Our Morning Edition host George Prenticesat down with them to talk about the coronation, the royal family and getting up early to watch the ceremony.

When people ask me, “What time do you start Morning Edition?” my go-to answer is, “Don’t worry. No matter what time you get up, we’re on the job.”
As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
