Watch aerial views of London on the day of King Charles III’s coronation.

His Majesty and the Queen Consort will embark on a procession from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey at around 10:20am local time, before the King is crowned in a service conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury at Westminster Abbey at 11am.

The newly-crowned King and Queen Consort will then travel in the Gold State Coach in a procession back to Buckingham Palace.

Once at the palace, Charles and Camilla will receive a royal salute from the military in the palace gardens, followed by a balcony moment where the couple will be joined by other members of the royal family to watch a flypast.

Crowds have been gathering along the Mall next to Buckingham Palace for several days ahead of the coronation, eager to secure a prime spot to catch a glimpse of Charles and Camilla.

Viewing areas along the procession route opened to the public from 6am on a first-come first-served basis.
