The Royal Family’s Coronation carriage procession revealed

A dozen members of the Royal Family will join King Charles III and Queen Camilla in the Coronation Procession after the solemn ceremony at Westminster Abbey.

Their Majesties will ride in the Gold State Coach to Buckingham Palace with the Princess Royal riding immediately behind in her role as Gold Stick and Colonel of the Blues and Royals.

Three State Landaus will convey other members of the Royal Family in the procession. In the first carriage will be the Prince and Princess of Wales with their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

The second landau will convey the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh and their children, The Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor and James, Earl of Wessex.

The third carriage will be taken by the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester who will be joined by Princess Anne’s husband, Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence.

The Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra will follow immediately behind in a State Car, thought to be a little more comfortable for them as they are both now in their eighties.

Once the carriages have arrived at Buckingham Palace, the Royal Family will move to the gardens where King Charles and Queen Camilla will receive a Royal Salute from the Armed Forces from the UK and the Commonwealth who have been on parade.

Members of the Royal Family will later join Their Majesties for an appearance on the Buckingham Palace balcony.
