Celebrations have taken place across Hampstead and Highgate to mark the Coronation of King Charles III.

In Hampstead Garden Suburb, the vicarage at St Jude on the Hill was decorated in red, white and blue balloons and Union Jack bunting.

It was opened up to the public for what was described as a “relaxed viewing” of the coronation.

Church members posted a picture on Twitter with the caption: “The bell was rung! ‘God Save The King!’”

In Highgate, the Harington Scheme, a charity that provides training to young people with learning difficulties, opened its site in Cholmeley Park for celebrations.

Pictures showed ‘King Charles’ bunting at the site, while London Metropolitan Brass, a community brass band in Muswell Hill, Hornsey and Finsbury Park, performed.

Ham & High:

Earlier today, at a few minutes past midday, Charles became the 40th reigning sovereign to be crowned at Westminster Abbey, as Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby placed St Edward’s Crown on his head.

The King and Queen set the seal on their historic coronation day with a double Buckingham Palace balcony appearance to acknowledge the nation.

The royals watched a flypast from the balcony, which was scaled down to include only helicopters and the Red Arrows due to the poor weather.
