Britain’s King Charles III was officially crowned Saturday in a magnificent and deeply religious ceremony at Westminster Abbey.

The coronation — a symbolic coming together of the monarchy, church and state — is being attended by dignitaries from around the world, and thousands of people have gathered in London to take in all the pageantry. It’s Britain’s first coronation in 70 years.

After the two-hour ceremony, Charles and his wife, Queen Camilla — who was also crowned — will travel back to Buckingham Palace in the Gold State Coach, which has been used in every coronation since 1831. They will then make an appearance on the palace balcony alongside other members of the royal family and watch a flypast of 60 aircraft.

On Sunday, thousands of events are scheduled to take place across the country as part of the “Coronation Big Lunch,” while Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Take That will headline the “Coronation Concert” at Windsor Castle in the evening.

Charles instantly became King in September when his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, died at the age of 96. She was the longest-reigning monarch in British history.
