#Buhari and Commonwealth leaders meet King Charles III ahead of today’s coronation

President Muhammadu Buhari, and other Commonwealth leaders, have met with King Charles III in Marlborough House, ahead of his coronation scheduled for today, Saturday, May 6, 2023.

The meeting which was held on Friday, May 5, 2023, was used to welcome the King as their new leader and discussed areas of mutual interest.

While Charles became King on the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II in September last year, the coronation is the formal crowning of the monarch.

In a ceremony that is expected to last at least two hours, Charles will be officially crowned, presented with an array ceremonial objects and be recognized as King by various representatives of the British state.

Parts of central London have been gridlocked for several days, with barriers lining the route that King Charles and Queen Camilla will take in procession from Buckingham Palace, the British monarchy’s official London residence, to Westminster Abbey, the nation’s coronation church since 1066.

Huge crowds are expected to descend on the British capital, with some royal fans spending the past few days camping along the 1.3-mile (2km) route in hopes of securing the best vantage point.

Charles and Camilla will travel along the route to the abbey in a splendid coach drawn by six horses, accompanied by the Household Cavalry.
