Cheers rang through the centre of Glasgow as hundreds of military personnel gathered for a special parade to mark the King’s coronation.

It followed the coronation ceremony on Saturday and was set to be one of the main celebrations north of the border.

The city’s Lord Lieutenant, Jacqueline McLaren, made a speech in George Square to launch the event, which also included inspection of a guard of honour and three cheers for the King and Queen, followed by the national anthem.

She told the crowd: “I would like to thank you all for attending today to mark this historic occasion.

“I was honoured, as the city’s representative of Their Majesties, to accept their invitation to witness the historic ceremony at Westminster Abbey – a memorable and once-in-a-lifetime event.

“On behalf of the city on this day, which marks the first full day of our new King’s reign, I wish the royal couple longevity, happiness and wisdom.

“I met the King for the first time in October last year at the opening of the refurbished Burrell Collection.

“I look forward to welcoming King Charles III and Queen Camilla back to Glasgow very soon.”

The parade then progressed through the city to the cathedral, which was one of the locations broadcasting the coronation live, for a thanksgiving service.

Thousands attended an independence march and rally in Glasgow, while in Edinburgh hundreds of people gathered on Calton Hill for an anti-monarchy rally organised by Our Republic.
