Now a lip reader has revealed what exactly Charles said in return:“thank you William”, reports The Express.

Charles' crowning brought the coronation ceremony towards an end after a morning filled with pomp and pageantry.

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".

The service took place in front of a host of world leaders and stars, as well as members of the royal family.

Prince Harry was among the group after he accepted an invitation for his dad's big day – although Meghan Markle is remaining in the US for Archie's birthday.He sat with Princess Eugenie, her husband Jack Brooksbank, the Queen's cousin Princess Alexandra, Princess Beatrice and her husband Edo Mapelli Mozzi.
