Charles - the Duke joined the Queen before the Altar where various moves took place.
Eventually when they both moved to their faldstools in front of the Altar, to take communion, the image switched to a view only of the Altar cloth, and the commentator explained that the next would not be seen by us and the prayer would be heard only by people in the Abbey.
We then had a long silence lasting some minutes.
Eventually music started and we saw the crown, sceptre and rod returned to the Queen who put on St Edward's Crown again.
The Duke returned to his chair and the Queen was escorted back to King Edward's Chair. Edit: Correction - to her Throne-Chair.
