Charles and Camilla were crowned on May 6, in a magnificent and very religious ceremony in Westminster Abbey.

The coronation – a symbolic gathering of the monarchy, church and state – was attended by dignitaries from all over the world, and thousands of people gathered in the streets of London to watch the processions to and from the abbey. This was Britain’s first coronation in 70 years.

Charles immediately became king in September when his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, died at the age of 96. It was the longest reign in British history.
