Under the British system there is no requirement for a Coronation, is what I believe to be the case.
Immediately on the death of a monarch the next monarch accedes to the throne.
As soon as practical, an Accession Council, of Privy Councillors and others, meets to proclaim the new monarch, who signs a Declaration.
Merlin - I believe that is all that is required to take place. Is that correct?
I know that the Proclamation is read out publicly in various places later.
I'd be interested in any comments and observations on this.
