That is stunning, marinamaral! What a difference the colour makes! The scene is alive now. Wonderful!

I have to agree with Cyril and Roslyn. You've done a marvelous job. Its hard to believe that photo was taken in 1953 as it looks like it could have been taken yesterday by some of the finest digital cameras available.

I can't wait for the next Coronation. Westminster's Abbey will be turned into a majestic place. Just looking back at The Queen's Coronation, I'm amazed on how everything is put together. Today, it would be a sight out of this world.

The Queen will not be very happy to hear you can't wait. I'm sure she's saying ' well you will just have to wait I'm not moving on anytime soon "😂😂

I along with most people in the UK/world hope we have to wait for a long time before that happens.

On September 22, 1761, George III and Charlotte were carried to Westminster Hall separately in sedan chairs. They were escorted to Westminster Abbey on foot. When the crown was placed on George's head, a huge cheer went up from the boys of Westminster School and the congregation.

Lol, you guys know what I mean. I'm just expressing my excitement that I will (Gods willing) get a chance to see a live Coronation. I have seen videos and pictures of The Queen's Coronation, but seeing it Live will make all the difference.

Elizabeth II have all my love and respect.

Just brouhaha about essentially nothing. Everything that article mentioned is already known or speculative.

Just as a side comment, chances are that the Human Rights Act 1998 might be repealed (at least, the Conservative Party supports repealing it). Using the HRA to override the Marriage Acts 1836 and 1949 may not work then.

Quite honestly, I don't think its going to be any big issue with Charles should he be the only one crowned on coronation day. I don't believe either that Camilla gives a hoot either whether or not she's crowned or what title she carries when Charles is king. She has shown time and time again that she's content to be Charles' support system. I think they're really twisting words to mean something else by stating that Charles really, really wants Camilla to be crowned as Queen. We'll just have to wait and see what happens when the time comes.

I also firmly think its a wonderful idea to change it from "defender of the faith" to "defender of faith". With listing The Supreme Governor of the Church of England first and foremost, it denotes where Charles' religious faith is prominent and with "defender of faith" after it, it denotes that Charles accepts, respects and defends the rights of all British citizens to practice their personal faiths. As the UK becomes more and more diverse, this would be a change that reflects and acknowledges that.

Just my two cents worth.

I can assure you that, when the time comes, the Camilla situation will become a big deal. I'm only looking forward to the ceremonial events that will come the on the day of and days after when Charles ascends. Everything else will be a headache for the firm, governments, media and people.

Oh I'm sure everything and everyone will be buzzing about the different issues surrounding the coronation but I don't see Charles and Camilla jumping into the fray and fighting one way or the other. I'd be willing to bet my last strudel that they've already pretty much come to grips with the situation and will accept whatever is deemed "correct" when the time comes.

We have to remember too that the moment Charles becomes king, it means that he's lost his mother.

You'd have thought with wars, natural disasters and economic upheaval, social injustice and countless other worthwhile things to write about, the revolting rag that is the Daily Wail could find something more immediate to write about.

HM The Queen would appear to be in good health. It's quite possible that she'll even outdo her Mother and live for another decade plus. It's also not inconceivable that Charles and/or Camilla, both nudging 70 now, could pop their clogs before her.

"Defender of the Faith" was a title bestowed on Henry VIII by the Pope for, ironically, defending Roman Catholicism. You can (although probably shouldn't) reinterpret/stretch that definition to "defending Christianity". However, given its origin, there's no way you can rehash it to mean defending religious faith in general. That would be like receiving the title of "Duke of York" but calling yourself "Duke of England." If Charles isn't comfortable with the title, he should just drop it, resign as Head of the Church of England and let Parliament disestablish the Anglican Church.

Camilla doesn't have to be formally crowned to use the title of Queen (cf Henry VIII's last four wives, Catherine of Braganza, Caroline of Brunswick...) and if she is crowned, she can still be called "Princess Consort" if that is what Charles decrees (cf Mohammed VI of Morocco).
