The Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla in Pictures

More than 2,000 people were invited to attend King Charles III’s coronation on Saturday, and many of those guests are high-profile royals themselves.

Along with members of the British royal family and leaders of the government — like British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, who spoke at the ceremony — world leaders from other countries were also attendance.

Delegates from countries in the British commonwealth attended, carrying flags for their countries as they entered Westminster Abbey.
