It promises to be a memorable service commencing at 11 a.m. and will be conducted by the Dean of Westminster, The Very Reverend Dr John Hall. It is estimated 2,000 guests have been invited to attend the service.
More from Majesty Magazine:
'Readings will be given by the Prime Minister, The Rt Hon David Cameron MP, and the Secretary General of the Commonwealth, His Excellency Mr. Kamalesh Sharma. A poem by Poet Laureate, Carole Ann Duffy, which has been specifically written for the anniversary, will be included in the service.'
Kate elected to wear an Alexander McQueen blush overlay lace dress to the Jubilee service at St. Paul's Cathedral last year. The bespoke piece was a stellar choice and one I hope she wears again. I expect the Duchess could choose a similar bespoke piece for the Coronation Service.
After the service, a number of the royals will attend a luncheon in College Hall, the Mediaeval Abbots' Dining Hall built in the late 14th century. I'm very much looking forward to this one, no doubt a very special event for the Royal Family, particularly Her Majesty.
Whilst entertaining guests at The Queen's Garden Party on Wednesday, Kate said, "Sadly, I couldn't bring William with me." We now know the Prince could not attend because he was busy paying a private visit to his patronage homeless charity Centrepoint.

Prince William became patron of Centrepoint in 2005, the charity has always been close to the Prince's heart. As children, William and Harry made visits to Centrepoint services with their mother, the late Diana Princess of Wales. Diana was also patron of the organisation and an enormous supporter of its work. William is obviously eager to continue his mother's work and has played an active role in various aspects of Centrepoint.
William talked with Centrepoint young person Patrick, who showed him some tasty treats from social enterprise Zendegii. Zendegii trains and employs disadvantaged young people. William was delighted to try a smoothie and flapjacks which he rather enjoyed.
The Prince appears to really enjoy under the radar visits to his charities. I expect it allows a more personal and informative visit without photographers and reporters present. He looks very much at ease and relaxed in a more private setting. It's been said we'll see many more private visits like this in the future. Homelessness is such a prevalent issue and it's great to see William supporting Centrepoint.
Many will remember William and Kate's visit to Centrepoint in December 2011, where William showed off some dance moves much to Kate's amusement. :)
Yesterday, Prince William opened the Ordinary UEFA Congress and spoke of the honour of welcoming European football to London. The Prince is the president of the English Football Association and revealed he believes Bayern Munich will win tonight's Champions League Final: "my money's is on Bayern Munich and two-nil."
The Prince was presented with a football for Baby Cambridge.

Like so many others, the first thing I noticed was William's Help For Heroes wristband.
More from Hello! Magazine:
'Prince William showed his solidarity with British servicemen and women when he proudly displayed his Help For Heroes wristband at an official event on Friday.
Two days after the shocking scenes in Woolwich, when Drummer Lee Rigby was so brutally attacked whilst wearing a Help For Heroes jumper, the Prince's band was clearly visible as he made the opening speech at the UEFA Congress in London.'
William and Harry officially opened a Help For Heroes centre last week and are passionate advocates of the charity. The £2 wristband is available to buy at the Help For Heroes online shop. William sent out a strong message of support by wearing it at yesterday's event and Her Majesty plans to visit Woolwich next week. You can watch a video here.
