People on the internet do not care about the coronation
To be very very exact the disinterest in King Charles III’s coronation arises from several interconnected elements, including evolving perceptions of monarchy, diminished media attention, generational shifts, and public perception of King Charles III himself. People on the internet especially remembered Princess Diana and the tragic fate she experienced on the very day of Charles III’s coronation, the alleged prejudices brought up by Princess Diana back in the day as well as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in recent times alluded to them to boycott the royal ceremony in honor of the queen of the hearts. Many missed their beloved princess dearly.

Besides that, the current generation does not find elaborate conservative celebrations interesting anymore. In recent years, traditional media outlets have also witnessed a decline in viewership, as digital platforms dominate the information landscape. Their failure to simply catch up with the times is also responsible for the steep decline in popularity. As one person tweeted in disbelief,

Some of the notable moments from the coronation
The elements from the elaborate ceremony that stole the show and shifted the spotlight from the new King Charles III and Queen completely were Katy Perry and Prince Louis, the youngest son of Prince William and the Princess of Wales. Prince Louis’ occasional yawns in between the ceremonies made the internet laugh and were the moment that people on Twitter resonated with the most. The singer Katy Perry who was also in attendance stole the show as she was seen taking a selfie just before heading down to the abbey in her lavender ensemble.
Prince Harry also created a lot of buzz by attending the event solo and then proceeding to leave the event in a hurry to attend to his wife and children back in the US. All in all, it was quite a successful event. Although the people could not care less about the event or Charles III, the small moments that shined through unexpectedly and made the social media users laugh, in turn, made the ceremony memorable for the internet.
