Lip reader claims King Charles said 'we can never be on time'
Just like any other family then! Lip reader reveals frustrated King Charles moaned ‘we can never be on time’ as he waited in coach outside Westminster Abbey amid claims William and Kate arrived late to ceremony
- King and Camilla arrived five minutes early at Westminster Abbey yesterday
- They were filmed chatting as they ended up waiting in their coach outside
King Charles III complained that ‘we can never be on time’ as he waited in the Diamond Jubilee State Coach ahead of his Coronation, lip readers claimed today.
The monarch chatted to Queen Camilla inside the coach after they arrived five minutes early at Westminster Abbey and ended up waiting in their coach outside.
Prince William, his wife Kate Middleton and children Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis were said to have been late and ended up having to join the King’s procession through the church because they were unable to overtake to get ahead of him.
Lip reader Jeremy Freeman has since analysed a video of the King waiting in the coach outside in the rain. The expert claimed to the Daily Star that he thought Charles said: ‘We can never be on time. There’s always something… this is boring.’
A second lip reader, Jacqui Press, also studied footage of Charles earlier on during the carriage procession and told MailOnline that she believed he said: ‘I’m worried about time, I mean it’s been longer this time and, well, erm, I mean look! I know.’

It follows claims that William and Kate arrived late, prompting a change to the planned order of service before the King had even stepped out of his carriage.

The Prince and Princess of Wales were supposed to arrive and be seated before Charles and Camilla, according to the Coronation’s official order of service.
Instead, they arrived after Charles, meaning the King first had to wait in his carriage before he finally walked into the Abbey ahead of his eldest son.
Most of the 2,300 guests had already taken their seats inside the church two hours before the ceremony began.
The order of service said: ‘Their Royal Highnesses The Prince and Princess of Wales, Princess Charlotte of Wales and Prince Louis of Wales arrive at the Great West Door and are conducted to their seats in the Lantern. All remain seated. Their Majesties The King and The Queen arrive at the West Gate. A fanfare is sounded. All stand.’
Instead, William and Kate stood behind the King and took their seats as he was already walking into the church.
Today, William and Harry surprised fans in Windsor with a walkabout.
The couple made the unannounced appearance ahead of tonight’s star-studded coronation concert at Windsor Castle and were seen shaking hands and chatting to revellers.

It came shortly after Buckingham Palace issued the first public statement on behalf of Charles and Camilla since they were crowned.
A Palace spokesman said the King and Queen were ‘deeply touched’ by the nation’s celebration of their historic coronation.
‘Their Majesties were deeply touched by the events of yesterday and profoundly grateful both to all those who helped to make it such a glorious occasion – and to the very many who turned out to show their support in such numbers in London and further afield,’ he said.
Heir to the throne William is to take to the stage to deliver a speech during the musical extravaganza in the grounds of Windsor Castle.
The King, Queen and royal family will join around 20,000 members of the public at the musical extravaganza to see performances by Take That, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie.
