Preparations continue for the coronation of King Charles III of England, which will take place today. A rehearsal for the coronation of King Charles was held in the capital, London.
In the parade, soldiers marched around Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace, the royal procession's route to and from the coronation. As part of the coronation preparations, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben Clock Tower and Parliament House in London, where King Charles will be crowned, were illuminated with projected images to commemorate the royal family.
For the ceremony, King Charles will wear a gold robe called the Supertunica, made for King George V in 1911 and used at every coronation since then. Supertunica, which weighs about 2 kilograms, is made with gold embroidery technique and embroidered with spiral threads that take the form of leaf branches. King Charles will also wear a white leather glove for his right hand, on which he holds the scepter of monarchs during his coronation.
