I watched it. It was a very impressive affair. A lot of pomp and ceremony and a pound or two's with of jewels on show too.👸

I wached last nights offering on TV, its not the same as seeing the real thing. I also hadn't heard the song, it was just by chance I was listening to the radio and it was mentioned. As is my wont googled.

Sorry leccy. I thought it was the jester in Henry V111 court. But then again he was beheaded because he failed to amuse the executioner.

...This royalty stuff sounds very familiar...



Give it up, Joey...

Obvious is an understatement.

mindar I saw that golden coach a couple of years ago when it was on loan at a National Trust propery. It was beautiful but didn't look very comfortable

I dont suppose any of the coaches used are very comfy.Kathp.Although I think there must be padding for the royal derriers.

The newest state coach made in Australia and a gift from Australia has a hidden modern suspension system. I saw it in the royal mews two years ago, very discreet was the system used.
Kath.... was it shown with the model horses and postilion riders as in the royal mews exhibit.
