KanyiDaily had earlier reported how the royal couple traveled by car from their Clarence House home to Buckingham Palace on Saturday morning for the coronation festivities.

The monarch, 74, and his wife, 75, were finally crowned in a royal event witnessed by hundreds of high-profile guests in Westminster Abbey, as well as tens of thousands of well-wishers who gathered in central London despite the rain.

King Charles Crowned

King Charles was anointed with holy oil and swore the oath of kings, before the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, who crowned him.

Archbishop Justin Welby placed the 360-year-old St Edward’s Crown on to the monarch’s head before proclaiming: “God save the King!”

The congregation, which includes 100 heads of state, kings and queens from across the globe, celebrities, everyday heroes and family and friends of the monarch, then replied: “God save the King!”

The King was then officially enthroned as the archbishop proclaimed: “Stand firm, and hold fast from henceforth this seat of royal dignity.”

The enthronement traditionally represents the monarch taking possession of his kingdom.

Queen Camilla Crowned

Minutes later, Queen Camilla was seen adjusting her hair out of her face as she was crowned with Queen Mary’s Crown.

She had earlier been anointed in public in a break with tradition.

The Bishop of Dover presented the Queen with the Rod with Dove before Lord Chartres presented her with the Sceptre with Cross.

The Queen then curtsied before the King as they appeared to smile at each other in a charming moment in the coronation.

As Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s coronation anthem was sung, the Queen was officially enthroned.

The enthroning of the Queen was a moment in which Charles and Camilla were “united in their joint vocation before God”.
