As the coronation weekend draws to a close, King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla have reiterated their pledges to a life of service.
King gives ‘heartfelt’ thanks as celebrations end
King Charles has given “sincere and heartfelt” thanks to everyone involved in his coronation weekend and said he and his wife Camilla would rededicate their lives to service as three days of celebrations drew to a close.
Amid pomp and pageantry, Charles and Camilla were crowned at London’s Westminster Abbey on Saturday in Britain’s biggest ceremonial event in 70 years.
In an echo of his late mother Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee message last June, before she died three months later, Charles and Camilla reiterated their pledge to serve.
“As the Coronation weekend draws to a close, my wife and I just wanted to share our most sincere and heartfelt thanks to all those who have helped to make this such a special occasion,” Charles said in a statement on Monday, paying tribute to those who made the weekend possible and those who joined in celebrations.
