Think it was just King Charles and Queen Camilla who were crowned today? Think again – it was Twitter who truly ruled the roost.

While the royals were performing a historic (and solemn) ceremony, filled with ancient rituals and symbolism, Twitter was busy cooking up all of its best jokes.

From gently poking fun at the guests to giving all of the royals a ribbing, the platform showed no mercy.

And there’s no denying that the first coronation in 70 years has given us some iconic moments, including Prince Louis being completely over the whole thing before it has even begun.
