Enthronements or in some cases like in Denmark, they're proclaimed King or Queen.

Depends on the country. Of the current European monarchies:

- Belgium
Belgium has no crown; the monarch's formal installation requires only a solemn oath on the constitution in parliament, symbolic of the limited power allowed to the king under the 1831 Constitution.

- Denmark
In 1660 the coronation ritual was replaced with a ceremony of anointing. This rite was in turn abolished with the introduction of the Danish Constitution in 1849. Today the crown of Denmark is only displayed at the monarch's funeral, when it sits atop their coffin. The present Queen, Margrethe II, did not have any formal enthronement service; a public announcement of her accession was made from the balcony of Christiansborg Palace,.

- Liechtenstein
Liechtenstein does not use a coronation or enthronement ceremony.

- Luxembourg
The Grand Duke of Luxembourg is enthroned at a ceremony held in the nation's parliament at the beginning of his or her reign. The monarch takes an oath of loyalty to the state constitution, then attends a solemn mass at the Notre-Dame Cathedral. No crown or other regalia exists for the Grand Duchy.

- Monaco
The Principality of Monaco does not possess any regalia, and thus does not physically crown its ruler. However, the Prince or Princess does attend a special investiture ceremony, consisting of a festive mass in Saint Nicholas Cathedral, followed by a reception where the new ruler meets his subjects

- The Netherlands
Although the Netherlands has a crown and other regalia, these have never been physically bestowed upon any Dutch monarch. Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, like each of her predecessors, had an inauguration ceremony rather than a coronation.

- Norway
While the Norwegian constitution of 1814 required the King of Norway to be crowned in Trondheim, this mandate was repealed in 1908. Thereafter, the ruler has only been required to take his formal accession oath in the Council of State and thereafter in the Parliament. King Olav V instituted a ceremony of royal consecration, known as Signing til kongsgjerning. This ritual took place again in 1991, when King Harald V and Queen Sonja were similarly consecrated.

- Spain
No monarch of Spain has been crowned since John I of Castile and Ferdinand I of Aragon. Instead, the new monarch appears at the Cortes, where he or she takes a formal oath to uphold the Constitution. Although the crown is evident at the ceremony, it is never actually placed on the monarch's head.

- Sweden
The last coronation was Oscar II's coronation in 1873; subsequent kings of Sweden elected not to be crowned, though there is no law or constitutional provision preventing a coronation. Carl XVI Gustaf was instead enthroned in a simple ceremony. The crown jewels were displayed on cushions to the right and left of the royal throne, but were never given to the king.

In the Uk, we have a proclaimation ceremony as well, shortly after the death of the monarch, proclaiming (and giving the regnal name) of the new monarch. I thought this happened at St James' Palace.

I remember reading that there was complaints about the behaviour of Edward VIII who watched the proclaimation with friends including Wallis Simpson. Apparently, this was considered bad manners as it was before the funeral of George V.

Edward VIII watched his proclamation from a window at St James' with his "dearest". Elizabeth was proclaimed Queen while in Kenya but the Privy Council, Mayor of London and Commonwealth met at St James' to approve the proclamation. :

Well if it is the same as his fathers it is not much to see. The new king just appears in Parliament ans swears an oath of office and then it is done.

They never had a proper installation.
Vittorio Emanuele II had been already crowned King of Sardinia when Italy was finally united, so I suppose he didn't had another coronation. Furthermore, the Crown of Italy, also known as the Iron Crown of Lombardy, was considered a reliquary (the tradition has it that there's a nail used at the crucifixion of Jesus Christ incorporated in it) and one of the oldest royal insignia of the Holy Roman Empire. now, because of the conflicts with the Holy See and the Habsburgs, the use of that crown for a coronation was seen as rather untimely. So the king decided to keep the Crown of the kingdom of Sardinia in his coat of arm. Umberto 1st wanted to have a coronation ceremony with this ancient crown of Italy (used by Napoleon as well) but only when the political climate was more favorable, introducing this piece among the Savoy's regalia little by little and creating the Order of the Crown of Italy, but his assassination in 1900 interrupted his plans, but the crown was exhibited at his funeral (it happened also at Vittorio Emanuele's funerals in 1878) and his tomb at the Pantheon in Rome bears a bronze copy.
His son Vittorio Emanuele III never wanted a coronation.

The Coronation Coach of King Charles X of France was completely gilded with gold leaf.
The interior is trimmed in crimson silk velvet.
George Handel wrote the Coronation Anthems for George II in 1727.
This music was for King George II of England's coronation.
