Coronation of King Charles: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

Information requested

All correspondence, notes and information relating to the coronation of King Charles in May 2023.


Plans for the Coronation of His Majesty The King are underway and like other stakeholders, the Scottish Government will play a part in those plans.

I enclose a copy of some of the information you requested in pdf format.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide all of the information you have requested because exemptions under section 28(1) (relations within the UK), section 30(b)(i) (free and frank provision of advice) and section 38(1) (b) (personal information) apply to that information. The reasons why these exemptions apply are explained in the Annex to this letter.
