London’s Metropolitan Police on Monday confirmed that at least 64 people were arrested in the UK capital during the coronation of Charles III on May 6.

The police said that over 50 people were detained during the event.

“As part of the policing operation in central London for the coronation, a total of 64 arrests were made yesterday (Saturday, May 6) for various offences including breach of the peace and conspiracy to cause a public nuisance,’’ the police said in a statement.

Four arrested individuals have been charged with offences with dates for court hearings already set. Several people have been bailed or released with no further action.

On Saturday, King Charles III was officially crowned at a solemn coronation ceremony in Westminster Abbey. The coronation occurred amid anti-monarchy protests and the cost-of-living crisis in the UK.

On Saturday, the Guardian reported about 2,000 anti-monarchists had gathered in Central London on Trafalgar Square to protest the coronation.
