I first time saw Buckingham Palace ahead of the coronation in 2023

While the Royal Family was attending the rehearsals, I was visiting Buckingham Palace for the first time in my life. I  landed in London last night and after visiting Kensington Palace gardens in the evening, called it a night. The time I spent outside Buckingham Palace was worth it and I was able to capture the arrival of King Charles III at the Palace after the rehearsals. Last night there was a security incident at Buckingham Palace when a man threw a suspected Cartridge towards Buckingham Palace grounds. The incident caused the closure of the nearby roads surrounding Buckingham Palace. But everything was back to normal in the early morning.

Now to the details of the rehearsal – The Prince and Princess of Wales were seen at the rehearsals with a familiar face, Jamie Lowther Pinkerton. Jamie played a huge role in the young Prince, William and Harry’s lives. It was Jamie who guided Catherine Middleton into the Royal world during her dating and engagement period. Jamie’s son was one of the page boys at the wedding of William and Catherine in April 2011. It seems Jamie has been once again called upon to guide the young Wales family for the historic event.
