LONDON – People from across the UK and the world flocked to London where Charles III was crowned king in the massive ceremonial event, the first of its kind in seven decades.

Word leaders including the Pakistani Prime Minister were invited to the coronation ceremony of Charles who succeeded his mother, Queen Elizabeth, taking over the throne as oldest British monarch.

A large number of armed forces personnel are in London to take part, and a large security operation was in place as King Charles III, who waited for decades to become king, was crowned at Westminster Abbey.

The first prayer was observed when Charles reached the Abbey, and the King and Camilla left for Westminster Abbey to return to Buckingham Palace in a mile-long procession, with thousands of troops and over a dozen military bands.

Upon arrival Palace, King and Queen observed a flypast by air force jets.

Amid the festivity, the massive event has also drawn protesters from the Republic, who remained vocal for end of the monarchy. At least six agitators were detained around Trafalgar Square.
