The Windmill Lit Up

WATCH: Coronation celebrations on Wimbledon Common

In celebration of King Charles’ coronation, processions took place from two war memorials in Wimbledon Common on Sunday.

Both processions were led by a piper and a drummer who played traditional music celebrating the four nations of the United Kingdom.

Fleur Anderson, MP for Putney, Roehampton and Southfields and Steven Hammond, MP for Wimbledon attended the event.

The processions made their way to the windmill on Wimbledon Common which was illuminated as part of a coronation event which saw iconic buildings lit up across the nation.

To mark the historic occasion, there was music from St Mary’s Choir and other local musicians as well as poetry readings.

All those in attendance were encouraged to light a candle.
