I feel that you are right, westendwilly. But I feel a need for something to broadcast the status of a peer or peeress, even though you say the train tells us everything.
The men might have a different idea.
The leap from all that robed and coroneted finery to nothing seems a leap too far.
So I am busily inventing something for both the peers and peeresses to wear.
Badge, or sash, or neck ribbon, or collar?
To be quite different from the Orders, I suggest one epaulette. Ladies would not presume to go bare-shouldered to a coronation.
The epaulettes could be designed with various combinations of embroidered leaves and balls.
