THE coronation of King Charles III will be watched by a congregation of more than 2200 people including foreign monarchs, world leaders and celebrities.

The National can reveal a rundown of what we know so far about the Scottish politicians who will be attending the event.

The First Minister of Scotland Humza Yousaf, who is a republican, has accepted an invite, it has previously been confirmed. 

Now the party has also said the SNP's Stephen Flynn, Brendan O'Hara, and Ian Blackford will attend the service in their respective roles as Westminster leader, chief whip and former Westminster leader.

In February Flynn said he is "quite sympathetic" to the ditching of the monarchy to enable Scotland to become a republic.

Last year Blackford, when he was SNP Westminster leader, said the monarch would remain an independent Scotland, which is the current policy position of the party.

Opposition leaders Douglas Ross of the Scottish Tories and Anas Sarwar of Scottish Labour will also be attending, it has been confirmed, along with Scottish Liberal Democrats leader Alex Cole-Hamilton.

However no-one will be attending from the Scottish Greens. Co-leader Patrick Harvie previously stated the party – which have called for a debate on the future of the monarch – would turn down their invites as no-one is “remotely interested” in attending.

Alba has also said no-one will be attending and that "nor did anyone want to attend". Party leader Alex Salmond has said he will attend the All Under One Banner rally in Glasgow instead.  

Holyrood's Presiding Officer Alison Johnstone will also be going, as will David McGill who is clerk/chief executive of the Scottish Parliament.

The Scottish Conservatives and Scottish Labour have also been approached for comment.
