George IV? Not exactly a riot I suppose but some in the crowd supported the queen who was shut out of the abbey.

Quite farcical really.

When you consider how the two remaining royal sisters in law both reached over a hundred. And the Duchess of...

Yes I did thank you. Not too far out of Salisbury is Old Sarum where Eleanor of Aquitaine was imprisoned for many years before Richard released her.

Wimborne is lovely & a former royal estate.

It's a shame the palace did not survive. Cecil's Burghley House is nearby of course, a palace in all but name.

With a cute dog. Windsor Castle in the background, a nod I guess to her then status as heir presumptive. I wonder who commissioned this portrait. Her mother or the king?

Wouldn't it great if you could. My father was at the coronation.

Not in the actual abbey.:biggrin:

I always look out for him when looking at the crowds. You never know!
