‘Not a reality TV show’: Piers Morgan slams call to shorten coronation for short attention spans

Sky News Australia host Piers Morgan has rubbished calls to drastically reduce King Charles' coronation to cater for a "digital age" of people with shorter attention spans.

Buckingham Palace has announced the Coronation of King Charles will take place on May 6. 

In line with over 900 years of tradition, the Coronation will take place at Westminster Abbey and be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The event is set to be a slimmed-down affair to reflect the current cost-of-living crisis in the UK. 

His Majesty's crowning service is expected to last just over an hour and the guest list is expected to be cut from 8,000 to 2,000 people.

Mr Morgan discussed the issue with author and journalist Jenny Kleeman – who argued having a coronation that lasts the traditional length of time would be "a bit much" for today's audience.

"I think we live now in a digital age where people's attention spans are a lot shorter," Ms Kleeman said.

"I think four hours might be a bit much – you can make one hour very sensational."

Mr Morgan chided her over the call, saying "it's not a reality TV show".

"It's a coronation of our Monarch," he said.
