Charles III and Camilla have been crowned King and Queen of England in a ceremony full of music and symbolism inside Westminster Abbey.

Wearing his grandfather’s crimson velvet robe, King Charles took an oath, and was anointed with holy oil, before the St Edward’s Crown was placed on his head.

Camilla, the Queen Consort, was crowned with Queen Mary’s Crown in a similar ceremony moments later.

About 2,200 people, including the Royal Family, celebrities, faith leaders and heads of state, are inside the Abbey to witness the event.

A few days ago, President Buhari and some government officials departed the country to England to attend the coronation.

The BBC reports that, the royal couple will return to Buckingham Palace in another lavish procession and greet crowds from the Palace balcony.
