During part of the long coronation ceremony of King Charles III, in the gardens of Cardiff Castle, where the official broadcast was concentrated, one soldier passed out and fell face down on the ground. Seconds later, he was assisted by two soldiers who dragged him away.
The soldier is part of the 104th Royal Artillery Regiment which was carrying out protocol drills, and it could be seen how he suddenly fell to the ground.
Dressed in another uniform, two soldiers approached, picked him up and took him away for medical treatment.
So far, more than 4,000 ceremonial troops have attended the procession, escorting the King and Queen to Buckingham Palace on the Gold State Coach.
Earlier, a horse involved in the Westminster Abbey coronation procession bounced during the parade and slammed into one of the corrals, although no one was injured.
The crash occurred as the Golden State carriage rounded the corner from Whitehall to the Mall, according to The Guardian. One of the horses behind the carriage began to walk backwards before colliding with the barriers that separated the audience from the route of the procession.
Military personnel were seen rushing to help and a stretcher was fetched, but it was unnecessary and no one appeared to be injured. It appears that a female police officer got help from her colleagues and limped away from the area.
Coronation of King Carlos III: After 74 years of waiting, his real reign now begins
A ceremony so medieval and spectacular that its modernization has become a controversy. Carlos III, the first king in 300 years who waited 74 years to ascend the throne, was crowned on Saturday morning in Westminster Abbey with his wife Camilla, former lover, wife, then queen consort and by decision of the sovereign, the new British queen
The most luxurious Crown Jewels and the centuries-old Coronation ceremonial, with the Anglican church showing its ancestral rites and, at the same time, a popular tribute of support to Carlos, which replaced the membership of the aristocrats, who made the ruler uncomfortable.
A modern ceremony. The Parker Bowles, ex-husband and children of the new Queen Camilla, arrived by bus and settled in the front row. The Queen’s grandchildren attended her coronation, wore her long royal train and were of course received. A royal family reunited but not reconciled.
A strange coincidence. When the whole country says that Prince William has a lover and that this is Prince Harry’s real reproach to his brother, and the reason for their fight, the sons of the accused countess were among the pages who carried the king’s tail together to his nephew, George, the other heir to the British throne.
