NewsKing Charles 'exhausted and knackered' after jam-packed Coronation weekend

King Charles is reportedly “exhausted and knackered” after the elaborate celebrations for his official Coronation. The 74-year-old was crowned in a prestigious ceremony at Westminster Abbey on May 6 followed by a extravagant Coronation concert on May 7.

It is now reported that the King has been “exhausted” by the persistent and hectic schedule.

Katie Nicholl told GB News: “I spoke to someone close to the king this morning.

“I said, ‘how is he feeling because he did a pre-party, pre-concert party and then after party and did that skit for American Idol, you know, brilliant.’

“The source said, ‘exhausted but knackered.’”

Around 2,300 guests across the globe attended the Coronation Ceremony.

She added: “I’m not surprised, they need a good rest now because it has been a pretty epic weekend for them.

“Saturday was the day that he’s waited his entire life for, you imagine the emotional energy that goes into a day like that, but I think overall it has been a great success.”

Sunday night’s Coronation Concert drew an average audience of 10.1 million viewers according to official figures from the BBC.

Kate Phillips, the BBC Director of Unscripted said: “Last night’s Coronation Concert was an unforgettable evening of spectacular performances that brought us all together in celebration.

“Against the stunning backdrop of Windsor Castle, the concert reflected many of the King’s passions and highlighted the outstanding talent we have in the UK and beyond.

“We hope that viewers ‘never forget’ it,” making reference to Take That who performed.

The coronation of King Charles was watched by a peak television audience of 20 million Britons on Saturday, according to official viewing figures.
