Watched by audiences worldwide, the coronation of King Charles III on May 6 and the subsequent concert on May 7 were momentous occasions in British history. Infused with pomp and pageantry, the ceremonies held at Westminster Abbey and Windsor Castle respectively, were lavish affairs and we are still reeling from the level of regalia on display. 

But priceless jewels and opulent robes aside for a moment, certain members of the guest list caught our eye with their top notch coronation 'fits, from Katy Perry's pink Vivienne Westwood ensemble she wore to Westminster Abbey to Sofia Richie's viva magenta co-ord she donned to watch her father perform at the concert.

Documenting such a historic occasion and paying their own tribute to our new monarch via social media was the priority for plenty of major names, including Princess Eugenie, Nicole Scherzinger and even Miss Piggy, who made a surprise appearance at the concert.
