Last updated on
Britain’s King Charles has been crowned, the key part of today’s Coronation Ceremony at London’s Westminster Abbey.
The congregation cried “God save the King” as the heavy St Edward’s Crown was placed on the Monarch’s head by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Gun salutes were then fired across Britain and Northern Ireland to mark the moment.
President Michael D Higgins and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar are in attendance today – along with world leaders, foreign royalty, and celebrities – including TV personalities like Ant and Dec, and Joanna Lumley.
Earlier, about 200 troops escorted the Royal procession from Buckingham Palace.
