King Charles III coronation: Social media reactions

The coronation of King Charles III. across the pond in Britain went pretty much as planned.

Britain has a new king, all sorts of strange treasures and artifacts have been presented to him, and everyone who looks after them seems happy. But that’s not why we’re here. No, we need to find out what the internet, home of intellectual discourse, thought of the coronation.


King Charles I, II and III: The Story of a Controversial Name

Here are some of the day’s most notable tweets, including a call for courtesy from Paddington Bear himself. He never took him for a royalist, but life surprises us every day.

Of course, the day did not pass without some disruptions to courtesy. Despite controversial new anti-protest laws(opens in a new tab) recently passed in Britain, an anti-monarchy group called Republic protested in Trafalgar Square. The group’s leader, Graham Smith, has been arrested, the BBC reports(opens in a new tab).

This has led some to question the UK’s commitment to democracy and the rule of law.

Of course, most of the online discourse wasn’t quite so serious. The ceremony usually caused a lot of jokes. For example, everyone had eyes on Prince Harry for obvious reasons.

And many people decided it was the right time to celebrate other monarchs instead.

Greetings to all the people who are eagerly awaiting the upcoming release of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Finally, The Onion clearly had to join in the fun.

It’s not often you see new British monarchs being crowned, this is after all the first coronation in 70 years and Twitter was at it’s full potential during the event. Maybe we’ll get another one of these in a few years. Hopefully Twitter will still be around by then.
