Aldi’s coronation range is chicken-heavy. It features some returning favourites from its seasonal ranges, like mini chicken kievs, as well as new chicken crowns.

The German discounter sought out the seal of approval from royal family superfan Anita Atkinson, who owns 13,500 pieces of British royal memorabilia dating back to the reign of Queen Anne

Aldi’s mini kievs are a favourite when they’re filled with buttery garlic sauce at Christmas. This time around they’re filled with (surprise, surprise) coronation sauce. They roll out from 4 May.

While Waitrose chose to feature the Jack Russell, thought to be the King’s favourite breed of dog, in its range, Aldi went for the more on-the-nose Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to feature on a range of beers, named for the current King’s distant uncle King Charles II.
