King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla have left Buckingham Palace in the Diamond Jubilee State Coach as the historic first Coronation in 70 years began today.
While the national anthem was being played, the crowds shouted God Save the King as he started on his 1.3-mile journey to Westminster Abbey through streets lined with 2million people and 7,000 British troops.
The Diamond Jubilee State Coach, drawn by six Windsor grey horses, arrived at Buckingham Palace for the King and Queen at 10am. Members of the Mounted Division of the Household Cavalry have already lined up at the entrance to The Mall ahead of the King’s Procession to Westminster Abbey.
More than 100 million people around the world are about to watch the historic first coronation of a British monarch in 70 years, with an estimated 2 million people on the streets of London to watch history unfold.
