Being a round trip, King Charles has a different fleet for his post-coronation ride, which is often a more elaborate event. His Majesty will travel in the Gold State Coach following his coronation. This gilded chariot has a lengthy history in the Royal Family. It was last seen in 2022 at the Pageant of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The Royal Collection Trust claims that since 1831, this carriage has been present at each coronation. This ride is about as regal as they get, from the painted panels of Roman gods and goddesses that punctuate the giltwood exterior to the velvet and satin finishes inside.

As for the attendees of the coronation, the government controls the guest list because the coronation is a state event. The prime minister, representatives from the Houses of Parliament, chiefs of state, and other royals from across the world will attend in addition to the Royal Family.
