The Scottish First Minister is one of 200 privy counsellors summoned to attend the Accession Council at St James’s Palace in London and take part in King Charles’s first Privy Council.

The ceremony is expected to take place at 10am, Buckingham Palace confirmed. 

It will be televised for the first time, and camera crews will be given permission to enter the State Apartments to capture the proceedings. 

Also for the first time, a Principal Proclamation will be read in public by the Garter King of Arms from the balcony overlooking Friary Court at St James’s, at around 11am.

It will be followed by a flurry of Proclamations around the country, with the second one in London at the Royal Exchange at midday on Saturday, and further Proclamations in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales at midday on Sunday.
