The Royal Avenue of London extends from the front door of Buckingham Palace to Trafalgar Square in the heart of London. It is the only street in the country to be paved in red. Only half a mile long, it has been the official route for royal weddings, funerals, enthronements, birthdays and military victories. King George III (the king who lost the 13 American colonies) began construction of the Avenue in 1761, and the rest is history. Most recently it was the site of the royal funeral for Queen Elizabeth II and will be the route for coronation of King Edward III on May 6, 2023. There is still time to reserve your place along the Royal Avenue. (Sponsored by the Friends of the Library)
