So the Coronation of King Charles III is finally done!
He and the queen consort have had a busy-ish day. They’ve been at the final rehearsals for tomorrow’s ceremony before Charles, joined by William and Kate, met with well-wishers on the Mall. Earlier, members of the royal family held a lunch at Buckingham Palace for leaders of some of the countries where King Charles III is head of state. Attendees included UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, and prime minister of New Zealand Chris Hipkins. But the real action starts tomorrow. Charles’ Coronation will start at 11:00 BST at Westminster Abbey before he and Camilla, the Queen Consort, pass thousands and thousands of fans on their way back to the palace where they will get a flypast from the Red Arrows and other aircraft.
Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Prince Andrew, Duke of York didn’t attend the event, amid continued speculation about what roles they might play in tomorrow’s ceremony.
The “slimmed-down” ceremony will be attended by 2,000 guests, including world leaders, members of the royal family and celebrities.
The world’s attention turns to the royal family that has undergone many changes in the recent past, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepping down as senior royals and the passing away of the country’s longest-reigning monarch Queen Elizabeth II.
Prince Andrew is being trolled for things related to his past.
