King Charles and Queen Camilla will get new thrones for Coronation as fresh details emerge
King Charles and Queen Camilla have been tipped to have their own new unique thrones during the Coronation ceremony. During the crowing and anointing section of the ceremony, King Charles will sit in the historic Coronation Chair.
It is believed to be the most sacred part of the coronation.
The Coronation Chair in St George’s Chapel is one of the most precious and famous pieces of furniture in the world.
It has been the centerpiece of coronations for over 700 years when it is placed in the centre of the Abbey, in front of the High Altar.
The Coronation Chair was made by order of King Edward I to enclose the famous Stone of Scone, which he brought from Scotland to the Abbey in 1296, where he placed it in the care of the Abbot of Westminster.
A news report by The Daily Mail stated each monarch has their own unique Throne Chair for the enthronement part, as a Palace source confirmed to the publication: “There is always a new throne for a new monarch, and this will be no exception.”
During the enthronement, Charles’s new throne will be set upon a raised dais, with Camilla to be crowned alongside him, seated on a lower level.
She will also have her own unique throne.
It is reported that King Charles’s new throne is said to carry the Tudor Crown, in a contrast to the late Queen’s logo, which held the St Edward’s Crown.
