Video: Zadok the Priest, from 1953 coronation of QEII

Some music to get into the mood in readiness for the real thing tomorrow.

The Robe of State to be worn by The Queen Consort was originally made for Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. The Robe is made of crimson velvet and has been conserved with adjustments made by robemakers at Ede and Ravenscroft ahead of the Coronation. "

Note that Queen Camilla is to use the same crimson robe, ie Robe of State worn by Queen Elizabeth II. Note how the six Maids of Honour pleat it up over and over onto the outstretched arms of the Groom of the Robes. He is also laden down with QEII's Garter Collar and diamond necklace.
