(And those that had been alive for the late Queen Elizabeth’s 1953 ceremony might have been too younger to recollect.) It was the second Charles had been making ready for actually all his life, and he made essentially the most of it. Although his ceremony was shorter and extra sparsely attended than his mom’s (simply 2,200 had been invited, versus the queen’s 8,251 company), it was nonetheless a grand spectacle. The king and Queen Camilla loved a coach procession down the Mall, a well-rehearsed service of hymns, speeches, and prayers, and plenty of age-old traditions — make that tons

The procession into Westminster Abbey alone concerned so many individuals, it took up eight pages of the official 50-page Coronation Order of Service. The royal couple had been attended by eight pages — together with grandson Prince George — and two Girls in Attendance, with Princess Anne performing as Gold Stick-in-Ready, a type of guard.  Charles wore 4 completely different coronation robes throughout the proceedings, starting from the silk Supertunica to the unadorned Colobium Sindonis. He was offered with a protracted listing of investiture gadgets, together with the standard scepters and orb, a sword, glove, and coronation ring. 

There was some tongue-clucking over the price of the entire affair; the estimated $125 million appeared a lot too extravagant for these worrisome financial occasions. It is stated Prince William felt the identical approach, so count on a way more budget-conscious ceremony when his time comes.
