After the ceremony, Charles and Camilla head back (roughly) the same way, but in a different carriage: Golden State coach. An iconic vehicle in use since 1831, but not immediately known for its superior comfort. Queen Elizabeth also used the carriage for her coronation in 1953. He described the experience that followed as “terrifying”. Charles and Camilla’s journey by carriage was much shorter than what Elizabeth had to do at the time.

Twitter is also introducing a special emoji for the event. It is an image of St. Edward’s crown, on which Charles will be crowned. As of today, if you’re using #Coronation, #CoronationConcert, #CoronationWeekend or #CoronationBigLunch, you can use the crown. Twitter had already pulled off a similar stunt in June 2022, when it introduced the corgi emoji in honor of Queen Elizabeth’s birthday.
