The result of the poll comes as just four private street parties have been registered in Wales for the Coronation weekend.
The UK Government has released a map tracking all the Coronation events taking place throughout the UK.
The map, created by the department for culture, media and sport (DCMS), allows the organisers of lunches, picnics, street parties and other events to mark King Charles being crowned.
According to the Government’s map, 1,188 public events/opportunities and 295 street parties or private events have been shared so far.
However, only four of those appear to be private street parties in Wales, with listings appearing on the map for Merthyr Tydfil, Neath Port Talbot and two in Carmarthenshire.
Cambrian News has reported that Ceredigion County Council did not receive any applications from within the county for street parties to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III.
Private street parties have to be registered with local councils to allow the blocking off of streets during the Coronation weekend of May 5-8.
