A CORONATION EVENT
Saturday, May 6 10:30 am to 2 pm
Renaissance Event Venue, 285 Queen Street, Kingston
Break out your fascinators ladies! May 6 will be a once-in-a-generation event. The last coronation was that of Queen Elizabeth in 1953. During the ceremony at Westminster Abbey, the monarch will take the coronation oath, before he is anointed, blessed and consecrated by the Archbishop. He will then receive the orb and sceptres before the Archbishop places St Edward’s Crown on the King’s head. At the Queen’s coronation, representatives of the Houses of Parliament, Church and the State, as well as prime ministers and leading citizens from the Commonwealth were present. The royal family’s website says the coronation is ‘an occasion for pageantry and celebration, but it is also a solemn religious ceremony, [and] has remained essentially the same over a thousand years’. Join us at Renaissance for this royal occasion.
