A lavish coronation doesn’t quite make sense in a cost-of-living crisis, does it?

This weekend, we’re not celebrating an outdated ceremony for a man born into power – we’re giving our readers a special offer to subscribe and support a better Scotland PLUS a special edition 8-page supplement on the monarchy.

By subscribing to our Digital Pack for only 50p for 3 months OR £36 for one year, you'll gain access our special edition 8-page supplement, our alternative coverage of the coronation, and analysis of the already apparent media frenzy.

But act fast, this offer ends at 23:59 on May 7 2023.

Laura Webster, editor of The National, said: "With The National you'll get no puff pieces on this archaic institution. Instead we'll focus on the true cost of the coronation, the dark history of the monarchy in Scotland and how the media seeks to prop up this decaying system.

"Over this weekend there'll be data driven articles exploring the financial excesses of the royal family, their real popularity levels in Scotland and informative analysis on how the monarchy lobbies against and influences our laws.

"So make sure to subscribe and don't miss a beat, as we do what none of the increasingly out-of-touch Unionist media is willing to do."

With your support, we can continue our quality journalism and challenge power.
