According to British media, the coronation ceremony of King Charles III of the United Kingdom was held at Westminster Abbey at 11 am local time.
This is the first coronation ceremony in the United Kingdom after 70 years, and it is also the largest honor guard in the country in 70 years. The ceremony is mainly a religious ceremony, including the king’s oath, the Archbishop of Canterbury anointing the king with holy oil, granting the king’s royal orb and scepter, and coronation.
After the ceremony, King Charles and Queen Camilla will take a golden carriage for a “coronation procession” and return to Buckingham Palace on the same road. More than 6,000 British soldiers will participate in the procession. This is also the largest honor guard in the UK in 70 years. The royals will finally meet the public on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
