2) Detailed description of Westminster Abbey, its history as a royal church, and its role in Coronations.
These have been touched on in this forum, but I think they deserve detailed threads of their own. The glitter of the Coronation is fascinating. Beyond that lies the introduction, acceptance, and induction of the head of state, head of church, head of armed services. The ritual stems from earlier epochs in which the monarch was also the head of government; it has survived to perform its role in the modern context. I would like to know more about this ritual, and about the setting of British Coronations.
3) Other countries' coronations. A thread about the coming Inauguration of the King in the Netherlands would seem appropriate, even though it will not be a Coronation.
