Royal coaches prepped for King’s coronation
As the coronation of King Charles III approaches, Royal workers are preparing for one of the most important parts of the days events – making ready the various opulent coaches which will carry the King from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey.
Two coaches will be used during the day’s events – the Diamond Jubilee State Coach, which will take the King and Queen to Westminster Abbey in the morning, and the Gold State Coach, which will carry the Royals to Buckingham Palace following the coronation ceremony in an official Procession.
Both will be drawn by several horses, with as many as eight horses pulling the Gold State Coach.
Each has been used relatively recently in Jubilee celebrations for the late Queen, and both are maintained regularly by people working for the Royal household.
