Brussels 06.05.2023 The EU delegation attended the Coronation in the Westminster Abbey. King Charles has been crowned at his Coronation, the first in the UK for 70 years.
“My best wishes to Their Majesties King Charles III & Queen Camilla on the occasion of their coronation.
We appreciate the King’s vast experience to promote understanding and respect, his tireless efforts to promote the sustainability of our planet” the president of the EU Council Charles Michel wrote on his Twitter page.
The Archbishop of Canterbury placed the St Edward’s Crown on the King’s head during a ceremony at Westminster Abbey.
The crown was made for King Charles II in the 17th Century and is only worn when the monarch is crowned – meaning King Charles III is not due to wear it again.
After the King was crowned, his wife Camilla was crowned Queen.
