A year on from the historic coronation of King Charles, the Monarch himself has marked the occasion with a moving video to remember the monumental event.

Despite facing personal health challenges, the 75-year-old King, alongside Queen Camilla, chose to commemorate their ascension to the throne with a poignant tribute shared on social media.

The footage, beginning with scenes of the King graciously greeting well-wishers on The Mall outside Buckingham Palace on the eve of the coronation, serves as a testament to the enduring spirit of the royal family.

Crowned at Westminster Abbey on May 6, 2023, following the passing of his beloved mother, Queen Elizabeth, the ceremony marked not only a transition of power but also a continuation of a legacy rooted in tradition and duty.

Accompanying the video was a caption inviting followers to reminisce about their favourite moments from the coronation weekend.

“Today marks the first anniversary of The King and Queen’s Coronation in Westminster Abbey,” the caption read.

“As well as the service itself, the Coronation Weekend saw a carriage procession through central London, a fly-past, a Royal Salute by 4,000 troops in the gardens of Buckingham Palace, a Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle and a UK-wide volunteering initiative.

“What’s your favourite memory of the weekend?”
