King Charles III’s Coronation
In near constant rain, crowds of spectators lined the processional route of King Charles III’s Coronation.
The Diamond State Coach
Having just passed through Admiralty Arch, the Diamond State Coach carrying King Charles and Queen Camilla is about to turn right into Whitehall to follow the processional route to Westminster Abbey for the Coronation.
The Gold State Coach
Returning from the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey, The Gold State Coach carrying King Charles and Queen Camilla is about to pass through Admiralty Arch on the return procession back to Buckingham Palace.
Crowds and Selfie Sticks
Defying the forecast rain, large numbers ensured their were crowds of spectators along the route of the procession. As the parade passed a forest of selfie sticks were held up high to record the event.
The Fly Past
Big state occasions always call on the Royal Air Force to stage a fly past. After a lot of planning, the weather forecast earlier in the week started to predict heavy rain for the day of the Coronation. The weather lifted just enough for some of the aircraft to take part. This picture was taken from Waterloo Bridge. The RAF Red Arrows always conclude the display trailing their red, white and blue smoke.
Leake Street Graffiti Tunnel
Beneath Waterloo Station there is a riot of colour in one of the arches. Leake Street offers a huge canvas where street artists can legally paint their art. This mural of King Charles III really stood out.
