I watched that with interest. What a lovely idea to bring out the St Edward's Crown and the Ampulla for the service. The Queen looked regal as ever.

My mum spoke to me last night to say she had watched it as she'd recorded it and she wondered why they sang God Save The Queen at the start. Is there a reason why?

Why wouldn't they sing it at the start? Don't they do that at most royal official outings? Like RVP, Festival of Remembrance?

I don't know as I hadn't really noticed it before but then thought that it would have been something sang at the end. I suppose it doesn't really matter, as long as it is in sang.

You have a positive outlook, but they emphasised the errors and then said it was a shame Charles had to be king and we should skip him for William.

Monarchies don't work like that, as we all know but it's raised again. So not that positive for the future.

I was gaga over the Peer and Peeress dress and coronets. WOW! I can only imagine how many people, how much work and how much materials of many kinds went into the coronation.

In the list of foreign royal guests at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, I do not see the names of Queen Louise of Sweden and her husband, King Gustaf VI Adolf. Was Prince Philip's Aunt Louise excluded?

Wyevale, Thank you! I looked at the list of foreign royals at the coronation. I saw Prince Bertil, Duke of Halland. He obviously represented his father, Gustaf VI Adolf of Sweden.

By tradition, reigning monarchs, and their spouses don't attend Coronations {it would wreak havoc on the precedence front !} Usually they send their heirs. I imagine this is the reason for the absence of the King and Queen of Sweden
