King Charles Takes The Coronation Oath- The King Has Been Crowned

The procession down the Mall

Millions of people in the UK and around the world are celebrating the Coronation of King Charles III.

The ceremony was held at London’s Westminster Abbey – and saw the King crowned along with Camilla, the Queen Consort – who will now be known as Queen.

The service was attended by more than 2,000 people including world leaders, foreign royalty and members of the Royal Family.


Tens of thousands of people lined the streets of London, cheering and waving flags, as they tried to catch a glimpse of the King and Queen as they travelled through the city in a gold carriage.

There were several stages to the two hour service.

First of all, the congregation at the Abbey pledged their allegiance to the King and proclaimed him the “undoubted King”.

After taking an oath where he promised to do the duties of the monarch, the King was anointed with holy oil before being presented with the items of regalia.

King Charles III was presented with several items including the Royal Orb, representing religious and moral authority; the Scepters, representing power; and the Sovereign’s Sceptre, a rod of gold topped with a white enameled dove, a symbol of justice and mercy.

He was then officially crowned by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, who placed the 360-year-old St Edward’s Crown on the monarch’s head before proclaiming: “God save the King” as trumpet fanfares sounded around the Abbey.

The King sat on a special coronation chair, which included the stone of destiny, for the occasion, as he was officially crowned King in the first coronation in Britain since 1953.

Peers kneeled before the monarch to pay homage to the newly-crowned King – the first coronation ceremony for seven decades.

Outside, ceremonial gun salutes blasted out across land and sea while bells pealed in celebration at churches.

His wife, Camilla was crowned Queen in a simpler ceremony soon afterwards.

The king and queen started at Buckingham Palace before heading out on “The King’s Procession” to Westminster Abbey.

King Charles III was crowned king around 7 a.m. Eastern time Saturday at Westminster Abbey, making him the 40th monarch to be crowned there. Charles became king when his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, died on Sept. 8, 2022. She was 96.

Thousands of people showed up for Charles’ coronation, the first crowning of a new monarch in nearly 70 years. Several anti-monarchists booed the king in protests near the ceremony in London as well.

Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, placed the crown on the king’s head. He was adorned with St. Edward’s Crown, just like his mother. Queen Camilla was also crowned.

Ahead of the ceremony, Charles, Camilla and other members of the royal family attended the procession from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey. The royal children, especially Prince Louis, had several meme-worthy moments.

Prince Harry, who is no longer a working royal, attended the ceremony without his wife, Meghan Markle. Meghan was in California, celebrating their son Archie’s 4th birthday. Harry is set to travel back to the U.S. shortly after his father’s coronation ceremony.

This Woman Won’t Let King Charles Forget Tampongate

Well, “Tampongate” lives on forever. A woman in Cardiff, Wales, holds a sign reading “All hail Camilla’s tampon” during the coronation of Charles and Camilla.

In 1993, Charles compared himself to a tampon, after telling Camilla he wished to “live inside your trousers.” The moment was reenacted, pretty much verbatim, in Season 5 of Netflix’s “The Crown.”

King Charles Takes The Coronation Oath

King Charles took the coronation oath to the Protestant faith, which became a legal requirement in 1689 when King William and Queen Mary promised to maintain the Protestant faith.
“I, Charles, do solemnly and sincerely in the presence of God profess, testify, and declare that I am a faithful Protestant, and that I will, according to the true intent of the enactments which secure the Protestant succession to the throne, uphold and maintain the said enactments to the best of my powers according to law,” he said.
Minutes before this proclamation, the congregation shouted “God save King Charles!”
