If, like us, you really made the most of the bank holiday weekend, then it probably wasn't easy getting out of bed at 7am this morning. Imagine then, how King Charles III and Queen Camilla are feeling, given how busy their coronation weekend has been.

Taking to Instagram to reflect on the coronation weekend and share a special thanks to his supporters, Charles penned a rare message to fans on Sunday night. "As the coronation weekend draws to a close, my wife and I just wanted to share our most sincere and heartfelt thanks to all those who have helped to make this such a special occasion," the newly-crowned monarch wrote.

"We pay particular tribute to the countless people who have given their time and dedication to ensuring that the celebrations in London, Windsor and further afield were as happy, safe and enjoyable as possible," His Majesty went on. "To those who joined in the celebrations – whether at home, at street parties and lunches, or by volunteering in communities – we thank you, each and every one."

King Charles ended his post by writing: "To know that we have your support and encouragement, and to witness your kindness expressed in so many different ways, has been the greatest possible coronation gift, as we now rededicate our lives to serving the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and Commonwealth."

His Majesty signed off as "Charles R" – with the initial having a special meaning.

In the comments section, fans welcomed the royal message and continued to celebrate the new sovereigns. "It was so wonderful to witness the outpouring of love that you so richly deserve. We are a country and a world that now needs our King of Kindness to lead us into an enlightened reign," one person commented, adding: "We love you and support you."

"Congratulations, Your Majesties! A wonderful weekend that I’ll never forget!" a second fan commented, as someone else wrote: "A lifetime of service and finally a fitting celebration for an epic couple!"
