The King’s coronation, the first in the UK for 70 years took place at Westminster Abbey. Queen Consort Camilla was also crowned alongside the King in a ceremony full of music and symbolism inside Westminster Abbey, according to the BBC. Wearing his grandfather’s crimson velvet robe, King Charles took an oath, was anointed with holy oil, before the St Edward’s Crown was placed on his head by the Archbishop of Canterbury, while the Queen was crowned with Queen Mary’s Crown in a similar ceremony moments later.
