It will also shine a spotlight on Britain’s place on the world stage in the UK’s biggest ceremonial military operation since the state funeral of Sir Winston Churchill in 1965 with 7,000 servicemen and women marching with the King and Queen.
A rich royal blue carpet – chosen to highlight the regal red, gold and purple robes of the king and queen – adorned the dais in the coronation theatre.
Stunning flowers in reds, burgundies and yellow golds covered the top of the ornate golden High Altar.
A smiling Dean of Westminster in his vivid red clerical robe was seen hurriedly carrying the holy oil for the anointing down the length of the abbey from the altar through the quire, clutching the precious ornate silver vessel in both hands.

Today’s Coronation will see 7,000 servicemen and women accompanying Their Majesties, making it the country’s biggest ceremonial event since 1953.
Indeed, the Coronation procession back from the Abbey after the ceremony is so large that when the King and Queen arrive at Buckingham Palace, the rear will only have reached Downing Street, a mile away.
More than 100million people around the world are about to watch the historic first coronation of a British monarch in 70 years – with an estimated 2million people on the streets of London to watch history unfold.
The monarch had been heir since the age of three, and is now ready to finally embrace his day of destiny with the woman he loves by his side.
His family, including Prince Andrew and Princess Anne, enjoyed a dinner at Mayfair club Oswald’s on Friday night. Mike and Zara Tindall were out until 2am.
Prince Harry flew in from Los Angeles for his 24-hour trip. It emerged on Friday night he has been relegated to the third row in the Abbey with other non-working royals.
