Royal fans left in hysterics as they joke they've spotted ‘two spare Camillas' at King Charles’ coronation | The Sun

ALL eyes were on the King and Queen Consort as they were crowned at Westminster Abbey this morning.

But royal fans joked that there was some confusion over Camilla’s appearance as there appeared to be ‘two spare Queens.’

Taking to Twitter, one user shared a snap of Annabel Elliot, Camilla’s sister while the other is Lady Lansdowne who are performing the role of a Queen’s Companion today.

But dressed all in white, as the new Queen herself is, and with a similar blonde bouffant hair, viewers couldn’t help but point out the similarities between the three women.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote: “Nice to see they brought two Camillas just in case.”

Another joked: “Why are there two spare Camillas on the balcony?”

Charles and Camilla returned to the Palace in the 260-year-old Gold State Coach in scenes similar to his mother's coronation.

Famously uncomfortable, the four tonne gilded coach is suspended on leather straps and can only be pulled by eight horses.

The Queen used the carriage for both her processions and later described the bumpy ride as "horrible".

A whopping 4,000 members of the Armed Forces including 416 from the Commonwealth and British Overseas Territories guided the new King and Queen back to the Palace.

Music was provided by 19 military bands marching in an exact rhythm in a massive ceremonial operation not seen since the Queen's coronation.

The impressive procession followed a coronation service attended by world leaders, celebs and royals this morning at Westminster Abbey.

Smoke filled the air around Horse Guards Parade as a six gun salute rang out at the exact moment the St Edward’s Crown was placed on Charles' head.

Thousands of royal fans camped outside cheered “God Save the King!” amid a fanfare of trumpets.

Prince William also pledged allegiance to his dad, saying: "I, William, Prince of Wales, pledge my loyalty to you, and faith and truth I will bear unto you, as your liege man of life and limb. So help me God."

Over the years, the King has expressed a desire to thrust the royal family into the modern age, which was reflected in today's service.

Charles shunned the extravagant trappings of wealth seen in his own mother's £1.57million ceremony as he moved towards a stripped-back monarchy.

The guestlist was slashed to just 2,000, compared to the Queen's 8,250, and the length of the service was drastically reduced.

Even the dress code was different, with the King opting to wear military uniform instead of the silk stockings and breeches seen in the past.

But some traditions remained – including the private anointing with holy oil, which took place behind a screen.

He also became the first monarch to publicly pray at a coronation, vowing to be a "blessing to all thy children, of every faith and belief".
