King Charles III and Queen Camilla were crowned at Westminster Abbey in London on Saturday.
King Charles, who is 74, has spend his entire adult life as heir to the British throne. He was anointed with holy oil by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby at Westminster Abbey, and after taking the oath of kings, was crowned by the Church of England's prelate.
During the 90-minute coronation service, the king signed a royal oath to serve the British people as the St. Edwards Crown was placed on his head. Camilla was crowned with Queen Mary's Crown.
Following the coronation, the king and queen left Westminster Abbey to take part in the Coronation Procession, in which they headed back to Buckingham Palace.
Once they reached Buckingham Palace, the new king and queen emerged onto its balcony to wave to the crowd.
First lady Jill Biden represented the United States. She arrived in London on Friday.
King Charles' coronation is expected to cost about $125 million at a time many Britons are struggling with high inflation to make ends meet.
Yesterday, there was a coronation concert that was broadcast live from Windsor Castle featuring American performers Katy Perry and Lionel Richie.
