Well, I had no idea so many people attended in carriage processions! I wonder whether at the next coronation the same thing will happen or whether we will see a row of buses!

I think the Royal Coronation ceremony is the zenith of pomp and circumstance...I hope buses (like in Prince William's wedding) are banished for this particular ceremony (at least for the main guests)....

I think the next coronation will see only two or three carriages - Charles and Camilla in the Gold State Coach, William and Kate and possibly their children, depending on their ages, and Harry and his spouse and children, again depending on their ages.

It is possible that there could be some cars - one for Andrew, one for Edward and Sophie and one for Anne and Tim. All others will be in a couple of buses - the people simply don't want all the show and expense that would be associated with any more carriages.

Ostentation is out.

A lot of the carriages used in 1953 had to be rented/purchased from film studios. I doubt the studios have such a large inventory these days.
I expect the next coronation will use cars and buses, much the same as was used recently in Amsterdam and have been used for royal weddings in Copenhagen and Amsterdam etc.

I thought that was very creative when they used carriages from the film studios.

Why can't people in 20xx experience the things people in 1953. With all our technology now what a better way to experience a grand coronation.

I think the next Coronation will be beautiful and with YouTube, C-Span, Reuters, etc...it will be a global event for sure.

a British Coronation should be ostentatious .......full royal pomp, banners & horses....tradition and ceremony....all other ceremonies can be more austere and spartan, but not a once-in-a-lifetime Royal Coronation in Great Britain IMO...

I agree with you 100%. Pull out all the stops, whistles, bunting, flags and what have you. It will definitely be a world wide event with all eyes on the UK and from what I've seen of royal weddings, no one does it better than the Brits!

Charles is very much a traditionalist and I can imagine he'll have a finger in every aspect of the plans from the music to the floral arrangements. This is THE ceremony he's waited a lifetime for and will want it to be memorable.

The Church of Scotland's ruling General Assembly has approved a call to crown monarchs in both England and Scotland, should Scotland becomes independent.

BBC News - Scottish independence: Kirk approves separate coronations

An interesting article about the possibility that if Scotland becomes independent, a seperate investiture ceremony could be held for new monarchs. Although I do not think that the matter has been discussed much in the Scottish Parliament, the approval simply sets out the Church of Scotands position if the matter became a reality.
Scotland has it's own set of crown jewels known as "The Honours of Scotland", whcih presumably could be used.

Well, considering QE2 is half Scotish, she is actually more Scotish than James I was.

All very well, but the newly independent Scotland, IF it ever happens, will have to pay for the ceremony and security and the Scottish Government would have to approve and pay the costs.

Right now the SNP don't seem to know what they want including what form of government a newly independent Scotland would have. Different reps keep saying different things. About the only thing they seem to agree on is keeping the pound as their currency even though they would have no control over monetary policy in their newly independent nation. I have visions of Alex Salmond running up the hill to Edinburgh Castle and placing the crown on his own head but its too small to fit.

The next coronation should be a civil partnership ceremony:
This medieval ritual, moving though it is, is so overwhelmingly religious it risks diminishing the monarchy. Reform it now-
