This is the gold state coach, which is used for coronations and was also used to take the Queen to her Silver and Gold jubilee services.

yes, is a very formal act.

Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess".

I guess it would depend on when it is, Louise may be to young. Does anyone know how old Princess Anne was the first time she wore a tiara ? I know Norway and Sweden it is when you turn 18. Or since this is a coranation would she wear regardless of her age ?

Oppie-who is full of questions

In the UK it's usually only married ladies who wear tiaras, but for a coronation they may relax that rule.

No, The Prince of Wales is currently not an Admiral of the Fleet, he will however inherit the title from The Queen upon his accession to the throne.

His Royal Highness currently holds the rank of Vice-Admiral in the Royal Navy.

His full ranks are: -

Vice-Admiral in the Royal Navy, Air Marshall in the Royal Air Force and Lieutenant General in the Army.

Assuming they are at least 18 years old, they will. That's usually the age a royal lady first wears one.

All princesses of the UK wear a tiara, along with their coronets, for the Coronation.

I didn't know that Elspeth! But don't the women and the men wear the coronets instead at the coronation?

There's a wonderful picture of the Connaught family with the Crown Prince of Sweden at the coronation of Edward VIII all holding their coronets.

Would Charles actually wear the spurs? I don't think Elizabeth II did but she may not have had the shoes for it.

I'm also interested in the Queen Consort's part of the coronation. Does anyone know about that?

I think its a shame that Charles doesn't want to wear the traditional robes in the Coronation if he truly doesn't.

Call me pedantic but when was Edward VIII's coronation?

Do you mean Edward VII's coronation in 1902 or George VI's in 1937?

OK, if you insist, I'll call you pedantic!

You're right though, it was Edward VII's coronation. :)

The Queen Consort is crowned in a simple ceremony shortly after the blessings are finished for the new Sovereign. The new Queen then is first to pay homage to the new King.

Why is there a seperate ceremony for the Queen Consort? Was there a seperate ceremony for Prince Phillip and do other monarchies do this too?

Also, when the new Queen pays "homage" to the new King, what is she expected to do?

Prince Philip wasn't crowned, so there was no ceremony.

The ceremonies for the King and the Queen are different because the King is the one who's making all the promises about reigning ahd upholding the church and so on. The Queen's coronation is shorter and simpler because those promises don't apply to her.

This Wikipedia article describes the coronation and the homage paid to the monarch. It doesn't say anything about a Queen Consort paying homage to her husband, though.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coronat...g_and_crowning

At the Queen's coronation, Prince Charles was too young to pay homage; he gave that homage to the Queen during his investiture as Prince of Wales.

The Queen Mother was crowned right after George VI and then knelt before him to pay homage before the peers did. She sat back on her throne for the formal homage of all the peers. It could be changed though for Charles III.

Thanks Elspeth and branchg. There's still very little out there as to what happens when a Queen consort is crowned.

Does the King crown the Queen or does the archbishop?

The Archbishop does. The Queen is anointed with holy oil and crowned in part of the same Christian service where the King is crowned.

I still think one of the most moving parts of the Queen's coronation was when Prince Philip knelt before his wife and made his homage.

I have a written description of the coronation and they even describe it as one of the most poignant moments of teh coronation.
