On May 15, Are Media released special editions of Woman’s Day, with a “Special Royal Collector’s Issue” with 16 extra pages covering all the special scenes from the Coronation of King Charles III, and New Idea with a ’24 page Royal Special’ and a bonus Coronation mini-mag with all the official images from the Coronation event.
Are Media editorial director, celebrity titles, Erin Holohan, said: “Like so many watching on at home, the teams at Are Media simply couldn’t get enough of the pomp and circumstance as we officially welcomed our new King to the throne – and the fun that followed as the Royal Family let their hair down at Charles’ Coronation concert!
“It gives us great pleasure to be sharing with our readers two very special editions of Woman’s Day and New Idea, each offering 16 bonus pages filled with memories from the historic event. From the intricate family tributes on Queen Camilla’s coronation gown, to King Charles’ crowning moment, and all those gorgeous interactions between cheeky Prince Louis and his ever-dutiful big sister Princess Charlotte, we hope these special collector’s albums will help readers relive every moment – including those they may have missed on TV – and be a special keepsake they’ll have in their homes forever.”
Both Woman’s Day and New Idea went on sale Monday 15 May 2023.
