The doors of Westminster Abbey have opened to guests for the Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla.

The great doors were opened up at 7.30am on Coronation Day with some of the 2,200 guests arriving almost immediately afterwards.

The Dean of Westminster, Dr David. Hoyle, walked through the doors as they were flung open to be on the steps to welcome the first of those who will witness the crowning of King Charles III and Queen Camilla.

Their Majesties are due to arrive just before 11am.

Among the congregation will be representatives of 203 countries and 100 heads of state.

Many of the foreign dignitaries attending were at a reception at Buckingham Palace, hosted by King Charles, on the eve of the Coronation.
