Crown, Orb and Sceptre
By

Rating
Coronations are very public occasions, typically seen as meticulously planned formal ceremonies where everything runs smoothly. But behind the scenes at Westminster Abbey lie extraordinary but true stories of mayhem, confusion and merriment. In this book we travel through over a thousand years of England's history to reveal the real character of its kings and queens. Also packed with facts about how the service, traditions and accessories have changed over the years, "Crown, Orb & Sceptre" provides both a compelling read and an accessible and irreverent reference guide to one of the most spectacular ceremonies in England's heritage.
