King Charles Coronation 2023........ Rehearsal photos
« on: May 03, 2023, 10:21:30 am »
Pictures from rehearsal give glimpse into King's coronation procession
There are now just a few days before the first coronation in 70 years

Hundreds of personnel from the Army, Navy and RAF have taken part in a night-time procession around central London in a dress rehearsal for the coronation. The parade began at Buckingham Palace shortly after midnight and some royal fans waited for more than three hours for the return journey down the Mall.

The Mall was lined with union flags and those from Commonwealth nations. A lit-up Buckingham Palace provided a stunning backdrop for the rehearsal in the early hours of Wednesday.

The Gold State Coach and Diamond Jubilee State Coach were pulled down the Mall as part of the preparations for the coronation on May 6. Friends and family gathered to watch the troops march.

Coronation photo shows King Charles with Prince William and Prince George

The latest official Coronation photograph released by Buckingham Palace sends a strong message about the monarchy's next generations.

King Charles III is shown with his son Prince William and grandson Prince George, bringing together the King with those next in the line of succession.

The picture, taken in the palace Throne Room, is part of a set of official photographs taken by Hugo Burnand.

The King is seen wearing the Imperial State Crown and coronation robes.

In these formal portraits, he is pictured carrying the regalia from the Coronation - an orb and sceptre - while sitting in a throne made for the Coronation of Edward VII.

It is an image full of lavish symbolism and regal colours of gold, red and purple.
