Today, we had the chance to watch the Coronation of King Charles the III. His wife, Camilla, was crowned Queen as well. I had not been born yet when Queen Elizabeth II was crowned, so this was the first live coronation that I was able to watch (on television). The ceremony was toned down but was still quite impressive. There was quite a crown in London along the route from the cathedral to the palace. I enjoyed the history behind the ceremony, etc. I was up at 5:05 am and went in to start watching the event. I definitely needed a nap – especially since I didn’t go to bed until 12:30 am. My mom, also woke up and watched the entire event. She said she also watched Queen Elizabeth’s coronation (June 2, 1953).
