A poignant moment between King Charles III and his son, Prince William, has been pinpointed as a particularly touching moment from the Coronation ceremony by Alastair Stewart.
The Prince of Wales pledged himself to his father the King, kissing him on the cheek and touching St Edward’s Crown during the historic occasion.
GB News’ Alastair Stewart said the particular moment stood out to him as it exposed the “genuine affection” between the King and his heir.
He said: “It was beautifully done. The crown was touched, as is tradition with the peck on the cheek.
King Charles shared a poignant moment with his son
“When Charles the Prince of Wales, he tended to kiss the late Queen’s hand. This was a son kissing his now King father on the cheek in a very moving moment.”
As William knelt before Charles, who held his son’s hand between his palms, the future monarch said: “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.”
