Sarah Ferguson, the ex-wife of Prince Andrew, still lives with him and said she was okay with not being invited to the coronation ceremony.
Sarah Ferguson spent the coronation celebrating the new monarch despite not being invited to the ceremony. Prince Andrew's ex-wife uploaded a carousel of pictures featuring the late Queen Elizabeth's beloved Pembroke Welsh corgi dogs - Muick and Sandy, alongside a fantasy-set tea party. The first two pictures featured the adorable fluffballs seated in a chair gazing about in a well-behaved nature admiring the surroundings and the setting around them. "Today I assembled a tea fit for a King which I shared with the residents of Manor Care Home at Windsor to help them celebrate,' she wrote before urging her followers to 'enjoy the weekend'.
The High-tea appears to have been set on a classic red and white table cloth along with other yummy munchies to feast on and also makes an appearance as a stunning golden cake, which emphasizes the crown itself. The wooden picnic basket contained a stuffed bear with a blue bow reading a lyric from 'God Save The King' followed by a refreshing bunch of flowers - red and white, a cookie jar themed by The UKs official flag, fresh produce of fruits and veggies, a cute mug for tea in a similar theme, Camilla tea, a plate of scrumptious English scones and lastly, a jar of juicy strawberries and cream in a jar. Her caption emphasizes celebrating with the rest of the residents as they geared up for coronation day.
Ferguson made it clear that she held no grudge for not being invited to the event despite being so close to the family. "Remember, I am divorced from [Andrew]," she said during an appearance on the ITV show Loose Women earlier. "I don't expect—you can't have it both ways. You can't be divorced and then say, 'I want this.' You're in or you're out." Sarah Ferguson still lives with ex-husband Prince Andrew at the Royal Lodge near Windsor Castle. The couple divorced in 1996, reported EOnline!.
King Charles III and Camilla, the queen consort, were officially crowned king and queen at Westminster Abbey. The event was filled with fanfare with huge crowds lining up on either side of the road for several hours. The ceremony was preceded by Charles and Camilla starting their procession from Buckingham Palace through Central London. The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby announced that "we are here to crown a king and we crown a king to serve" at Westminster Abbey, the first coronation ever since the Queen's way back in 1953, reported NPR.
The ceremony also marked Prince William pledging his allegiance to the king followed by the audience chanting "may the king live forever." Camilla was also crowned queen before sitting alongside King Charles. Some of the popular guests included Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, Olena Zelenska, the wife of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, US first lady Jill Biden and many UK politicians as well.
