Four Coronations, Two Weddings and a Funeral


This lecture tells of the RSN’s royal connections and focuses on their role in British coronations of the 20th century and the making of the funeral pall for their patron Queen Victoria. Associations with the Royal Family continue today with HM The Queen and their new patron the Duchess of Cornwall.
