Tens of thousands turned out in central London to see the pomp and pageantry, with Charles and Camilla processing through the streets in the Gold State Coach and taking to the Palace balcony in their glittering crowns following their historic ceremony.

In the candid footage released on the official royal family Twitter account, a compilation of clips showed Their Majesties greeting their admirers as well as documenting their journey to Westminster Abbey. 

The footage also featured members of their family, with the Prince and Princess of Wales and the Duchess of Edinburgh all taking part in engagements and royal walkabout. But one moment in the clip which really stood out was the moment Prince George was seen dancing with his granddad at the Windsor Concert - watch below:

Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, eight and five-year-old Prince Louis were also seen helping their parents volunteering on Monday. 

Before the weekend of festivities came to a close, Charles issued a special coronation message, saying: "My wife and I just wanted to share our most sincere and heartfelt thanks to all those who have helped to make this such a special occasion. 

"We pay particular tribute to the countless people who have given their time and dedication to ensuring that the celebrations in London, Windsor and further afield were as happy, safe and enjoyable as possible. 

"To those who joined in the celebrations - whether at home, at street parties and lunches, or by volunteering in communities - we thank you, each and every one."

He added: "To know that we have your support and encouragement, and to witness your kindness expressed in so many different ways, has been the greatest possible Coronation gift, as we now rededicate our lives to serving the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and Commonwealth."

The traditional official portraits marking the crowning of Charles and Camilla were released to round off the monarchy's landmark occasion. Among them, the King was captured in his full regalia – wearing the Imperial State Crown, holding the Orb and Sceptre with Cross, and dressed in his regal purple tunic and Robe of Estate, seated on a Throne Chair in the Throne Room at Buckingham Palace.
