LEWIS HAMILTON has revealed he has "no idea" if he received an invitation to King Charles' Coronation.

Brits will watch the crowning of a new monarch for the first time since 1953 tomorrow following the Queen's passing last year.

But Hamilton will be juggling other responsibilities as he looks to get Mercedes' season back on track at the Miami Grand Prix.

The seven times world champions said he will try to tune in from the garage tomorrow, but is not sure if he received an invite.

Sky Sports F1 reporter Ted Kravitz asked the star, who was knighted in 2021 by King Charles, if had been invited to attend the ceremony.

Hamilton said: "I have no idea. I have no idea. I don't see my mail. I've not seen my mail in years."

Kravitz responded: "You probably did get an invitation, you know…"

Hamilton added: "Kind of neat if I did, if I didn't it's okay. Amazing I'm going to hopefully have it live while I'm engineering."

The 38-year-old has met the new King on multiple occasions previously.

Even before he was knighted in 2021, Hamilton met the monarch in 1997 when the future F1 star was just a 12-year-old karting prodigy.

The driver previously told Vanity Fair: "When I had signed into 1997 and then I went to McLaren, Prince Charles came to open up the factory. And that day I remember having my go-kart and I was sitting there, and Prince Charles knelt down next to me and spoke to me. 

"I was like, ‘Hey, I’m Lewis Hamilton. One day, I want to be a Formula 1 champion. When I stood up [after being knighted in 2021], he’s like, ‘It’s been a long time since I’ve seen you. You’ve come a long way.

"And I’m like, ‘Yes, honoured to see you, your Highness. Thank you so much for having me and my family, this gesture,’ just telling him how grateful I am for this moment."
