The coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla will be an event attended by thousands, including heads of state, dignitaries, and members of the public. The world’s media will be watching, and so will anyone looking to take advantage of an event of this scale, from terrorists, to hackers and protesters.
Today, James Patton Rogers is joined by former director of GCHQ Professor Sir David Omand. Drawing on Omand’s insider knowledge in crisis management and intelligence, together they analyse the potential security and intelligence threats at major events like coronations, and using historical examples, give an insight into the plans the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police could likely be executing on the day of the coronation.
