All the changes King Charles made to his coronation – but some traditions remain
The guest list has been reduced to just 2,000, compared with the Queen’s 8,250, and the length of the service has been significantly reduced.
Even the dress code was different, with the King choosing to wear military uniform instead of wearing silk stockings and breeches as before.
But some traditions remain – including the private anointing, which takes place behind a screen.
He also became the first king to pray publicly at his coronation, vowing to be “blessing to all your children, of all faiths and creeds”.
The ceremony took place in the presence of many world leaders and stars, as well as members of the royal family.
