King Charles “in excellent spirits” at St. Paul's Cathedral for a historic ceremony

The British Empire no longer exists, but England retains rites which – in defiance of the revisionists – are undeniably part of the country's history. So here they are, King Charles III and the queen Camillaexit St. Paul's Cathedral after the service commemorating theOrder of The British Empire, founded by King George V in 1917 and which honors all those who have distinguished themselves in the most diverse fields to carry the name of the Commonwealth high, in the arts, sciences, charities and, more generally, in the public field. The Order's chapel is located in the Cathedral where Charles married Lady Diana, and it is here that the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby held the ritual service.

Together with the sovereign and the queen consort, who participated wearing the cloaks of the congregation, around 2000 people from the United Kingdom and other areas of the Commonwealth, all awarded some honor over the years. The king “He seemed to be in good spirits and looked good” during the ceremony, an insider told Sky News. As is known, the sovereign was diagnosed with cancer after undergoing prostate surgery last January, and has undergone a series of treatments in recent weeks. It is not clear whether they have ended definitively or not, what is certain is that he is gradually returning to his official commitments. Before the ceremony at St. Paul's Cathedral we had seen him unveil his first official portrait since he ascended the throne (a painting which sparked contrasting and even very ironic reactions from many web users) even before he had given him a new position officer to his son William, the honorary rank of colonel in the Army Air Corps, during a visit to the Army Aviation Centre, Hampshire.
