From pantomime cloaks to heraldic craftsmanship, the ceremony dripped with meaning. The Royal family made their fashion statement, and it was mostly good.
I'm reading this as a Brit based for a while in the States. I felt very removed from the ceremony for many reasons. I was angry with KC for pulling out of Cop27. When I read that it was because he was doing what Lizz Truss had requested, I was positively candescent with rage! Surely as King he can make the rules right? Anyways, I've really enjoyed reading your account and will try get my sense of humour back and to see him and them in a better, more positive light! Thank you, Jenny (@superlooperlife)
Very well expressed🙏
great piece Tiff - whatever one may think of the monarchy or the Coronation. xx
Possibly the very best report on the coronation I have read! I am saving this quote:
"Humans need food and water to survive but we also need story and narrative to thrive."
I am in the middle of rereading Women's Work the First 200,000 Years by Elizabeth Wayland Barber she emphasizes the link between language and garments in human history.
Very much enjoyed reading this thank you - and it made me laugh out loud!
You captured the fashion mood brilliantly, and as always so enjoyable with the seriousness of the message succinctly put.
What a fabulous article!
I live in Belize and the Coronation was not mentioned once anywhere I went on the weekend. Not once. Yes, lets give them full marks for recycling. Probably the best roundup of all news on the Coronation, thanks for a great piece.
