Flag bearer passed out during King Charles III’s coronation.


During the crowning of King Charles III and Queen Camilla at Westminster Abbey in London, one of the flag bearers reportedly fainted.

A flag bearer wearing red regalia and black pants and shoes was seen being helped by other flag bearers after landing on his back in pictures that were released online on Saturday.

After Charles was appointed to the position of head of state for the United Kingdom and 14 other Commonwealth nations, Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, formally installed his 75-year-old wife Camilla as queen.

In the United Kingdom, this was the first coronation since 1953—roughly 70 years ago.
