King Charles III officially became the King of the United Kingdom today. But, the real news is all the colorful, over-the-top regalia the royals wore at the coronation.
Although it’s difficult to see underneath her ceremonial robes, the Princess of Wales wore a white Alexander McQueen dress.
And her daughter, Princess Charlotte, 8, wore a similar ivory silk Alexander McQueen dress with a cape and silver headpiece.
Standing beside her brother Prince Louis, 5, they looked like Luke and Leia Skywalker in Return of the Jedi. The youngest of the three wore a Navy Hainsworth Garter Blue Doeskin tunic to complement his father.
Their older brother Prince George, 9, wore this scarlet tunic based on the Page outfit from the coronation of King Edward VII. As the Page of Honor and second in line for the throne, he carried King Charles III’s robes for his entry and exit.
King Charles III was decked out in the royal jewels, exiting Westminster Abbey.
And, of course, King Charles III went through robes and capes during the coronation ceremony like he was in a character selection menu on The Sims.
In the beginning, he wore this Parliament Robe over a crimson surcoat that was worn by King George VI at his coronation.
He also wore this gold Emperor Snoke-like robe during the investiture called the “Supertunica,” over an all-white anointing gown called a “Colobium Sindonis.”
And lastly, poor little ol’ Prince Harry, no longer a working member of the Royal family, didn’t get to rock as many colors as everybody else, aside from his medals across the breast of his blazer — but at least he still showed up.
