The coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla took place at Westminster Abbey in London on Saturday, May 6. The ceremony commemorated Charles’ role as monarch of the United Kingdom after he acceded to the throne upon the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II on September 8, 2022.
According to a press release issued by Buckingham Palace, over 2,200 individuals, which included members of the royal family, politicians, international royals, and world leaders, attended the televised ceremony.

The official coronation concert took place on May 7. Have a look at the some of the major moments from both events.


Anne’s hat:

Prince Harry attended his father’s coronation alone, while his wife Meghan Markle stayed in California to take care of their children and celebrate Archie’s birthday.

A red feather in Princess Anne’s hat obstructed Harry’s face from the view of the camera. Social media users are joking that the placement of the feather cannot be accidental.

Some also said that a candle played the same role at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II in obstructing a clear view of Meghan.

Prince Louis singing the wrong national anthem:

Crowd favourite Prince Louis was the focus of many people’s attention as he attended the Coronation service.
The five-year-old royal accidentally sang God Save The Queen instead of God Save The King at the end of the service.

Winnie the Pooh:

A video of the cartoon of Winnie the Pooh talking to Piglet about King Charles III’s love for red squirrels and the names he gave them was also played.
Winnie the Pooh then opened a door holding a balloon which said “King Charles III Coronation”.

Katty perry’s dress:

A special note was embroidered on the inside of pop star Katty Perry’s concert dress.

A photograph showed the inside of the bustier of the dress, which was embroidered with the words: “KATY PERRY. CHARLES III. 2023. VW.”

The embroidery included a small crown sewed next to the King’s name. “VW” indicated the initials of famed designer Vivian Westwood, who died last December.
