When King George V had his coronation, was there not a certain order of the Royal Family in a carriage procession that went to Westminster Abbey?
Who accompanied Prince Edward, the heir to the throne, to the Abbey?
With a new King and Queen Consort, who is the last to enter the Abbey on Coronation Day?

From Wikipedia about the Coronation in 1911

" The first of three processions left Buckingham Palace at 9:30 am. It consisted of representatives of foreign royal families and governments, carried in fourteen carriages. The second procession had five state landaus for members of the British royal family; the fifth contained the king and queen's children, the Prince of Wales, Princess Mary and the young Princes Albert, Henry and George. The third procession brought the officers of state in a further four carriages and the twenty-fifth and final carriage, the Gold State Coach carrying the king and queen. They were surrounded by equerries, aides-de-camp and the commanders of the armed forces mounted on horseback, all escorted by Yeomen of the Guard, colonial and Indian cavalry and the Royal Horse Guards ".

The King's procession is the last to enter as he is the sovereign. The Queen's procession is the 2:nd last to enter.

Does anyone know who Charles' Lord Great Chamberlain is likely to be? There are 13 potential candidates amongst the decendents of the 1st Marquess of Lincolnshire.

The shares those people hold range from 1/20 (Nicholas Llewellen Palmer, Rufus Keppel, and Harry Legge-Bourke) to 1/100 (the various descendents of Ruperta Legge).

The coronation of George VI and Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon as King and Queen of the United Kingdom and the Dominions of the British Commonwealth and as Emperor and Empress of India took place at Westminster Abbey, London, on 12 May 1937.

Via History Twitter

In 1727, George Frideric Handel was commissioned to write four coronation anthems for King George II. One of these anthems, Zadok the Priest, has been performed at every British coronation since.

As the earl of Dartmouth fulfilled the position for his wife the Countess of Darthmouth, I'd say that line is the least likely. My guess would be the 10th Earl of Albemarle (Rufus Keppel) as he has been in office for the longest time among the three that have a share of 5%. A case could also be build for Nicholas Llewen Palmer as the most senior line (among the 5%) or for The Hon. Lorraine Wilson as the most senior line overall (but only a share of 1.25% and female, which would be a novelty)

It would be great to have a female as Lord Chamberlain. Why not ?

Who would be the one to decide? The family or Charles or some other official?

And if Charles, is he friends with either one of them?

The Lord Great Chamberlain is an hereditary position and is current held by the 7th Marquis of Cholmondeley. That wouldn't change when Charles becomes King

The beautiful thing about the future Coronations will be the fact that lots of diversity will be incorporated throughout the Coronation. Looking at the documentary today, one can see such a major lack of diversity in the 1953 event. People of color couldn’t see any reflection of themselves in such an occasion.
