In his first online lecture for the Art Scholars, Freeman Luke Honey traces the fascinating story of British coronations (and investitures) since the coronation of Queen Victoria in 1838, and explains how the design of coronation furniture reflects the evolution of our constitutional monarchy in the 20th century.
