King Charles III and Queen Camilla are crowned

King Charles III has been crowned during a majestic and deeply religious ceremony at Westminster Abbey in London. He was honored alongside his wife, Queen Camilla.

Members of the royal family and world leaders are in attendance for the two-hour service, after a procession from Buckingham Palace through the streets of the British capital kicked off the festivities.

Police have arrested a number of anti-monarchy protesters near the procession route, after controversially promising a “robust” approach to demonstrators.

Later, the King will make a customary appearance on the Buckingham Palace balcony. A flypast involving more than 60 aircraft is planned.

“God Save the King” is being sung for Charles III for the first time since his crowning, as Britain’s first coronation service in seven decades moves towards its conclusion.

It’s the same arrangement of the anthem that was sung for Charles’ mother, Queen Elizabeth II, at her coronation in 1953.
