Charles III was crowned king on Saturday, in an eighth-century ceremony that included concessions to the modern age, not on display since 1953 when his mother Queen Elizabeth II, was crowned.

“I come not to be served, but to serve,” Charles said in his first remarks of the ceremony, before the 74-year-old, was anointed with holy oil, symbolizing the sacred nature of his rule. He was vested with an imperial mantle, and the archbishop of Canterbury placed the ancient crown of St. Edward onto his head.
