Yes, it may be a surprise to some, but Rowan Atkinson – of Mr Bean and Johnny English fame – has been friends with the King and Camilla for decades.

The actor was invited to their wedding and also joined the royals for the King’s private 60th birthday celebrations.

So his attendance at today’s coronation is no shocker.

Atkinson starred in Johnny English, in which the titular character disrupts a coronation and is accidentally crowned himself.
