King Charles III had the unfair advantage of having several centuries of monarchs choosing the clothes to wear at a coronation, so it's no wonder he looked kinda astounded during the event. The king shone in his regal regalia, though, which included multiple outfit changes, two different velvet robes, and two very precious crowns.

7. Prince William
