Why did King Charles Have a Meltdown at Coronation?

The highly anticipated coronation of King Charles faced a few hiccups and an unexpected outburst over the weekend, as reported by RadarOnline.com. The delay in the procession and the frustration experienced by the king were revealed, shedding light on the behind-the-scenes challenges that can occur even during grand royal events.

According to a lip-reading expert cited in the report, Charles allegedly expressed his exasperation, stating, “We can never be on time. Yes, I’m… This is a negative.” The king’s dissatisfaction continued as he reportedly remarked, “There’s always something. This is boring.” Dr. Guli Francis-Dehqani, the bishop of Chelmsford, later confirmed that there were a “couple of hiccups” before the coronation, which caused a slight delay in the proceedings.

While the bishop refrained from embarrassing anyone in particular, it was later revealed that Prince William and Princess Kate, along with their children Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, were the cause of the delay. The royal couple arrived late for the coronation procession, much to the frustration of King Charles. The Guardian reported that Charles grew increasingly annoyed when William and Kate failed to arrive at the scheduled time of 10:45 AM.

As a result of the delay caused by the Prince and Princess of Wales, Charles and his wife Camilla had to wait outside Westminster Abbey even longer than anticipated. Their scheduled arrival time of 10:53 AM was pushed back further due to the tardiness of William and Kate. It is worth noting that Charles had assumed the role of king almost eight months earlier, following the passing of Queen Elizabeth on September 8.

Despite efforts to streamline the coronation and make it more representative, the ceremony still carried a significant cost. Estimates ranged from $63 million to $125 million, making it a substantial investment. Following the conclusion of the ceremony, the royal family reportedly proceeded to Windsor Castle for a private family gathering. Later, a second intimate family gathering was held at Buckingham Palace.

Prince Harry, who attended his father’s coronation without his own family, was placed several rows behind the main royal family during the event. He allegedly left London immediately after the ceremony to return to his family in California.

The coronation celebrations extended throughout the weekend, culminating in a VIP “after party” at Windsor Castle on Sunday night. The event featured notable performers such as Lionel Ritchie and Katy Perry, providing entertainment for the distinguished guests in attendance.

Despite the delays and frustrations, the coronation of King Charles marked a significant milestone in the British monarchy. As the new king assumes his role, it remains to be seen how he will navigate the challenges and responsibilities that lie ahead.
