BBC Presenter Huw Edwards Takes a Swipe at Liz Truss During King Charles III's Coronation Coverage

Royal drama

BBC news presenter Huw Edwards made headlines during the coverage of King Charles III's Coronation ceremony by taking a swipe at former Prime Minister Liz Truss.

As the guests arrived at Westminster Abbey for the event, Edwards noticed Truss and her husband Hugh O'Leary following Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie Johnson. Edwards then made a comment about Truss's short time as PM, saying, "And then Prime Minister for a very brief period, Liz Truss with her husband Hugh O'Leary."

Viewers of the programme found Edwards's comment amusing, with one saying, "Just brilliant," and another saying, "Absolutely LOVE that man! #HuwEdwards."

The historic coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla was a monumental event. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, officiated the ceremony, at noon placing the iconic St Edward's Crown on the anointed head of the King. Throughout the ceremony, King Charles III offered prayers for the well-being of people with diverse faiths and convictions.

Westminster Abbey, serving as the nation's Coronation church since 1066, has witnessed the crowning of 40 reigning sovereigns, including the recent coronation of Queen Camilla. During her anointment ceremony, the Archbishop placed Queen Mary's crown on her head, signifying a historic moment.

At 1 pm, the coronation ceremony of the newly crowned King and Queen was concluded, followed by a grand procession to Buckingham Palace aboard the gold state coach. Over 4,000 military personnel, including sailors, soldiers, and aviators from the UK and the Commonwealth, marched alongside the royal couple. The procession was joined by over 1,000 route liners from the Army, RAF, and Royal Navy, making it a grand spectacle to behold.

The significance of this event and the commentary provided by Huw Edwards will undoubtedly be discussed for days to come.
