About this deal

The Queen, with The Duke of Edinburgh, was driven from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey in the Gold State Coach, which was pulled by eight grey geldings: Cunningham, Tovey, Noah, Tedder, Eisenhower, Snow White, Tipperary and McCreery. In the build up to Her Majesty’s 75th birthday, The Queen Consort made her Vogue debut in June 2022. As Prince of Wales, His Majesty became President or Patron of over 800 charities and initiatives in total. Before the Abbey was built, Coronations were carried out wherever was convenient, taking place in Bath, Oxford and Canterbury. In the whole ceremony, The Queen was reported to have only made one minor mistake, which was forgetting to curtsey with her Maids of Honour at the north pillar of Westminster Abbey.

Finally, The Queen put on stole and cloth of gold Robe Royal (Imperial Mantle) and received the orb, the coronation ring, the glove, which was newly made and presented by the Worshipful Company of Glovers, and the sceptre. He was also responsible for the State funerals of Sir Winston Churchill (1965), as well as the investiture of The Prince of Wales (1969).

In May 1941, a bomb hit the Deanery destroying the phial containing the anointing oil so a new batch had to be made up.

This consists of a state procession from Buckingham Palace to the Abbey, another procession inside, the Recognition, the Anointing, the Coronation Oath, the Homage and finally another procession from the Abbey back to the Palace.Unfortunately during the service, the ring was forced onto the wrong finger, causing Queen Victoria to be in ‘great pain. The first overseas tour The Queen undertook after the Coronation was to Bermuda, Jamaica, Panama, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand starting in November 1953. Edward’s Crown has been used in the coronation of every British monarch since the coronation of King Charles II. The ring was made for the Coronation of King William IV in 1831 and takes the form of a sapphire surmounted by a cross in rubies surrounded by diamonds.

Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII’s second wife, was the only Queen Consort to be crowned with the original St Edward’s Crown. The Queen Consort has attended many occasions with veterans, serving soldiers and officers of the 9th/12th Lancers with whom her father served. It was in fact so secret that a policeman guarded the door of the room where the dress was being sewn by the Royal School of Needlework.The Coronation service fell into six basic parts: the recognition, the oath, the anointing, the investiture, which includes the crowning, the enthronement and the homage. King Edward VII’s coronation was scheduled for June 1902 but was postponed after the King fell ill, meaning invited foreign dignitaries had left London by the time the ceremony took place.

She was in Kenya at the time and became the first Sovereign in over 200 years to accede while abroad. Their Majesties’ Coronation will include 12 new commissions of music, including a Coronation Anthem by Andrew Lloyd Webber, a Coronation March by Patrick Doyle, and other works by Ian Farrington, Sarah Class, Nigel Hess, Paul Mealor, Tarik O'Regan, Roxanna Panufnik, Shirley J. The St Edward’s Crown is only used at the point of crowning, the Imperial State Crown is used at every occasion requiring a crown from then. The officers and men taking part in the procession or lining the route totalled 29,200: 3,600 from the Royal Navy, 16,100 from the Army and 7,000 from the RAF, 2,000 from the Commonwealth and 500 from the ‘Colonies’.

The first photograph of a coronation was taken during that of George V in the early 20th century by Sir Benjamin Stone, an MP and amateur photographer. At the coronation of Queen Victoria, her fingers were so small that the ring could not be reduced far enough in size and an alternative was created. For the last 900 years, it has taken place at Westminster Abbey as the royal church for the Palace of Westminster. An estimated 27 million people in Britain watched the ceremony on TV and 11 million listened on the radio. Following her marriage to The King, The Queen Consort has become Patron or President of over 100 charities.
