Lip reader reveals King Charles' furious remarks after Prince William and Kate were late to coronation

Yesterday saw Charles finally crowned King, with thousands lining the streets of London to get a glimpse of the monarch.

But as is often the case with huge events like this, it didn't all go quite according to plan... and King Charles was not a happy bunny:

Every second of yesterday's coronation was accounted for, with Charles and Camilla to arrive at Westminster Abbey at a very specific time.

However, when the day actually came, the pair were a little early for their own party, and were left waiting outside the hall in their gold carriage for some time.

Footage showed a fairly miffed looking Charles chatting to his wife as they counted down the minutes until they could get things started.

It turned out that they were supposed to arrive at 10:53 but actually got there at 10:47.

And matters were only made worse by the fact that the Prince and Princess of Wales, William and Kate, were running late.

Well, a lip reader has had a look through the footage to see what Charles thought about it all, and as you might expect, be wasn't best pleased.

“This is boring," he allegedly says. “We can never be on time. Yes I’m…This is a negative. There’s always something…This is boring."

As a result, the prince and princess, eight-year-old Charlotte, and Louis, five, had to join the King’s procession through the Abbey, instead of entering before him and waiting in their seats for Charles and Camilla’s arrival.

Speaking outside St Margaret’s Church next to the Abbey yesterday, the Bishop of Chelmsford, Dr Guli Francis-Dehqani, admitted that there were 'one or two' hiccups.

“There were one or two things that didn’t go strictly to plan,” he said.

Adding: “I’m not going to embarrass anyone in particular.”

Charles wasn't the only one left a little red-faced following the coronation, though.

It's always anxiety-inducing trying to navigate yourself around a large event - let alone the King of England's coronation service, filled with celebrities and high-ranking members of society left, right and centre - such as Dame Judi Dench, Andrew Lloyd Webber, David and Victoria Beckham and even the magician Dynamo.

It's no wonder Perry looked increasingly frazzled as she tried to locate her seat further, again to little avail, making for some painfully awkward, but hilarious footage.

And sure enough, as soon as social media users cottoned on to the funny clip, it didn't take long for it to become widespread on Twitter, with people howling with laughter at the whole kerfuffle.

Fortunately, she revealed after the event that she managed to get there in the end.

"Don't worry guys I found my seat," she wrote on Twitter.
