Hundreds of King Charles cutouts made in Luzerne County

Cutouts of the King become popular leading up to his coronation.

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. — The coronation of King Charles III and his wife Camilla is set for this Saturday at Westminster Abbey. The King and his wife may be overseas, but people in northeastern Pennsylvania are bringing them right into their homes. 

"Wet Paint" in Wilkes Barre is a business that gets about 80% of its profits from cardboard cutouts. Right now, they are busy with cutouts of King Charles for his coronation. 

The business in Luzerne County, which usually sells 100 cutouts of King Charles a week, is now up to 600 to 700. Many of their customers are from Canada and the U.S. 

King Charles is a popular choice right now, but other cutout requests include The Queen, Elvis, Donald Trump, and Taylor Swift.
