King Charles had his official coronation this weekend.
But one major story dominated it all!
People thought Meghan Markle had sneaked in in disguise!
Keep reading to find out more.
King Charles III ascended to the throne back in September, following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
Charles Philip Arthur George was the late Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip’s first child, born on November 14, 1948.
He was quickly thrust into the spotlight as heir to the throne and has spent the majority of his life in the public eye.
According to the royal website, Charles was also the first heir to go to school instead of receiving a private education from tutors.
He took his education very seriously and became the first heir to obtain a bachelor’s degree, studying archaeology, anthropology, and history.
Aged just twenty years old, he was invested as Prince of Wales by the Queen.
After his studies, Charles served in the Royal Navy just as his father and grandfathers before him did.
In 1980, Charles famously began dating Lady Diana Spencer when he was thirty-one and she was just nineteen.
However, they first met when he was dating her older sister, she was just sixteen at the time.
Their relationship was highly publicized, and the world immediately fell in love with Diana, branding her the ‘people’s princess.’
However, their relationship was anything but a fairytale…
I think we all remember the interview where the pair were asked if they were in love, to which Diana replied: “Of course,” while Charles said: “Whatever ‘in love’ means.”
Despite his comments, they married on July 29, 1981, with a record-breaking 750 million people watching the wedding on TV.
Shortly after their marriage, they welcomed 2 sons into the world…
Prince William was born on June 21, 1982, followed 2 years later by Prince Harry, who was born on September 15, 1984.
Sadly, the pair went on to split in 1992, after rumors were confirmed that Charles was having an affair with Camilla Parker Bowles.
Charles and Diana officially divorced in 1996. However, just a year later, on August 31, 1997, Diana was killed in a tragic car crash in France, along with her boyfriend Dodi Al-Fayed, and Henri Paul, who was driving at the time.
In 2004, Charles went on to propose to Parker Bowles, who he wed a year later, giving her the title of Duchess of Cornwall.
Over the years, Charles has been given the nickname “action man” due to his extensive list of hobbies, such as surfing, skiing, horse riding… the list goes on.
But he’s also done a lot for charity, establishing over twenty charities in his spare time…
3 of his most recognizable charitable feats include The Prince’s Trust, The Prince’s Foundation, and The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Fund.
He is also known for supporting charities helping to tackle climate change and improve sustainability.
According to his website, King Charles and Camilla are “President or Patron of over 500 organizations.”
Despite having a very privileged life…
He has also faced a lot of hardships.
Over the last few years, Charles has suffered an immense loss…
He has had to say goodbye to both his mother and father within such a short space of time.
In 2021, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh sadly died aged ninety-nine, making him the longest-serving royal consort in history.
Then, not even a year later, Queen Elizabeth passed away, leaving Charles to take on the responsibility of becoming King.
His official proclamation took place on September 10, just 2 days after the monarch’s passing.
“My mother gave an example of lifelong love and of selfless service,” he told the Assession Council at the time.
He added: “Even as we grieve, we give thanks for this most faithful life.
“I am deeply aware of this great inheritance and of the duties and heavy responsibilities of sovereignty which have now passed to me.”
His ascension to the throne means the Royal Family’s titles have also changed, with Camilla now known as Queen Consort.
The title was announced before the Queen’s passing just before her Platinum Jubilee.
The Queen said at the time: “When, in the fullness of time, my son Charles becomes King, I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support that you have given me.
“And it is my sincere wish that, when that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service.”
The titles have also changed for the new heir to the throne Prince William and Kate Middleton, from The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge.
Although Charles is now king, his coronation wasn’t until May 6th.
The ceremony was at Westminister Abbey and was conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
His coronation will make him the fortieth monarch in 900 years to be crowned in the Abbey.
However, it seems as though Charles didn’t really enjoy his big day.
As a lip reader spotted what he secretly said to Camilla!
While waiting for his coronation to begin, he was spotted in his carriage outside the Abbey.
And he appeared to be venting his frustrations at being made to wait!
“Charles looks so angry!” wrote one commenter.
And now, two lip readers have revealed their interpretation of what Charles was saying.
“I’m worried about time, I mean it’s been longer this time and, well, erm, I mean look! I know,” a lip reader told the Daily Mail Charles was muttering.
“We can never be on time. Yes, I’m … this is a negative. There’s always something,” another lip reader interpreted.
And another big story came out of the coronation.
Meghan Markle was not in attendance – but some eagle-eyed viewers thought she had come in disguise!
A man with a mullet and glasses attracted the attention of Twitter.
“Meghan, you’re not fooling us…” one user Tweeted.
Well, now, the source of all the speculation has spoken out!
Sir Karl Jenkins has revealed his identity – and the fact he is not Meghan Markle!
“I was quite surprised that some people thought I was Meghan Markle in disguise,” Jenkins shared on TikTok.
“So that’s me,” he said.
“Nothing sinister about it or surprising at all.”
