🎧 Ceremonial Elements of Coronations
🎧 Gone Medieval • 36m
All this month, Gone Medieval is your perfect companion to the forthcoming coronation of King Charles III.
In this third special episode, Matt Lewis finds out more about the major ceremonial elements of the coronation with Dr. George Gross. Two components which still remain and are particularly significant are the recognition - where the incoming monarch has to be ‘approved’ by the congregation in Westminster Abbey - and the oath made in turn by the King to his people.
This episode was edited and produced by Rob Weinberg.
