Amidst much fanfare and pageantry, the long-awaited coronation of King Charles III took place at Westminster Abbey on Saturday.
The historic event, which marked the end of an era and the dawn of a new one for the British monarchy, was attended by thousands of people from across the country.
The coronation ceremony, steeped in tradition and history, was adapted to reflect the changing times and the diverse population of 21st-century Britain.
The build-up to the ceremony was mostly celebratory, with thousands of people lining the streets of central London to witness the historic event.
The coronation also marked a significant milestone in the life of Queen Camilla, who was crowned alongside her husband as queen consort, a role she had been preparing for ever since her marriage to Charles in 2005.
The newly crowned king and queen then left Westminster Abbey to take part in a grand parade that included other members of the royal family.
The parade, which was watched by millions of people around the world, was a major military ceremonial operation involving nearly 4,000 UK armed forces personnel.
The streets were lined with Union Jack flags, and the air was filled with patriotic fervor as the king and queen made their way to Buckingham Palace.
