BREAKING: Flag Bearer Slumps At King Charles Coronation Ceremony

There was a still moment on Saturday at the coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla after a flagbearer slumped at the venue at Westminster Abbey in central London.

Reports said the flag bearer collapsed during a procession.

Naija News reports that King Charles III was officially crowned at Westminster Abbey, the first coronation in Britain since 1953.

Camilla, 75, was crowned by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby moments after Charles’s own coronation as sovereign of the United Kingdom and 14 other Commonwealth realms.

Before the coronation, London police reportedly arrested dozens of protesters using new powers rushed onto the statute book to crack down on direct action groups.

The anti-monarchy movement Republic which wants an elected head of state, said six of its organisers were detained, while climate activists Just Stop Oil said 19 of its number were held.

Nevertheless, dozens of Republic activists held aloft banners on the route of the procession route, declaring: “Not My King.”

Naija News understands that Human Rights Watch (HRW), Amnesty International and other campaign groups condemned the arrests.

“This is something you would expect to see in Moscow, not London,” HRW said. Also, the Metropolitan Police reportedly deployed no fewer than 11,500 officers for one of its biggest-ever security operations.
