County Archives wants your coronation memories

Hampshire residents are being encouraged to share their memories of King Charles III or Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronations with the County Council’s Archives service so future generations can look back and see how historic royal occasions were celebrated across the county.

Photographs, film clips, audio recordings, or other celebratory materials, from either coronation are all welcome and can be shared at

Leader of Hampshire County Council, Councillor Rob Humby, said: “The memories and images captured by residents, past and present, will be a lasting historic record of what for some, will be a once-in-a-lifetime event. Recollections from this May’s coronation will become Hampshire’s legacy for future generations – marking a very special moment in time for people across the nation and the world as we celebrate a new Royal era. As many residents across Hampshire also take the opportunity to come together over the coronation bank holiday weekend, it is also a time for us all to celebrate all that is good about our communities and take pride in the strength, inclusiveness and resilience that lies at the heart of Hampshire life, and which makes the county such a wonderful place to live.”
