Charles III was crowned May 6 at Westminster Abbey. Former Prince Charles was the oldest heir to British monarchs, waiting in the wings until he was 73 years old. The previous record holder was his great-great-grandfather Edward VII. The arrival of many world leaders is expected for the celebrations. It is known that US President Joe Biden and Queen Margrethe II of Denmark refused to participate in the ceremony. Contrary to expectations, the Duchess of Sussex Megan (Markle), the wife of the son of the new monarch, will not come to the coronation. The coronation was accompanied by both modern entertainment events such as laser shows and performances by pop stars, as well as traditional processions for the British crown.
