A rail company decided to celebrate the coronation. They handed out free scones to first class customers.
Nothing like a bit of class divide to bring the country together.
It comes as a welsh town cancels coronation party after no one donates to costs, reports The Guardian.
The community group Caldicot Town Team said on its website: “Caldicot Town Team are disappointed to announce that the planned event for the king’s coronation has had to be cancelled primarily due to a lack of support and funding available to cover costs.
“A crowdfunder page has been running for 16 days, with social media promotion of the funder, but has failed to raise any money whatsoever.”
The team said it had approached Monmouthshire county council and other organisations but was unable to gather the funds needed for the event, expected to cost between £2,500 and £3,000.
The message added: “Whilst Caldicot town council have a small fund available, this only covers items such as plates, hats, bunting etc. Caldicot Town Team have taken the decision that in the current financial crisis, it would not be a good investment of funds, and could be better spent elsewhere throughout the year, such as a family fun day and street food festivals.”
Free scones – Coronation: Train company
East Midlands Railway tweeted: “To help celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III this weekend, we’ll be giving out a limited number of scones onboard our services to London to First Class passengers tomorrow and Friday
“The question is – do you put jam or cream on first?”
