The Coronation of King Charles: A Historic Moment in British History

Since 1066, Westminster Abbey has hosted the coronation ceremony, a religious ritual.

Since Queen Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953, King Charles will be the first king to be crowned.

Approximately one year following the monarch's ascension to the throne, the coronation ceremony is customarily held.

The ritualistic process includes the laying of the crown on the head of the monarch and anointing them with holy oil.

The St. Edward's Crown, which dates back more than 300 years and weighs about 5 pounds, is among the crowning regalia.
