As royal baby’s due date is expected to be 13th July 2013, the date clashes with Queen’s Coronation Festival, which will take place from 11th July 2013 to 14th July 2013. A mega event, this festival marks the crowning of the monarch. This year the festival celebrates the 60 years of Queen’s Coronation. You can expect following things at the festival this year:
