Speaking to us shortly after Sunday Mass the day after the Coronation of Their Majesties King Charles and Queen Camilla, Cardinal Vincent Nichols looks back on a day of celebration that showcased plenty of elements familiar to Catholics.

Six Catholic prelates attended the historic coronation, including the Cardinal Secretary of State and the Apostolic Nuncio representing the Holy See, and Cardinal Nichols himself who conferred a blessing on King Charles.

The Cardinal prayed that God may pour upon the King "the riches of his grace, keep you in his holy fear, prepare you for a happy eternity, and receive you at the last into immortal glory."

On this 'Catholic News' podcast, Cardinal Nichols reflects on a remarkable and historic occasion, talking about his role, the Catholic elements of the service, not least the Coronation Choir singing William Byrd's 'Gloria in Excelsis Deo' from the Mass for Four Voices, and why we should pray for the King.
