The Coronation Outfit In 1953
Coronations of new monarchs are often high-profile events, and those involved want to dress their best. Queen Elizabeth II wore a beautiful gown during her coronation that almost looked like a wedding dress. This photo captured the Queen as she left Buckingham Palace dressed in a white silk gown. The gown was decorated with flowers to represent parts of the Commonwealth. Her outfit also included a long, velvet train, which required multiple people to carry it. Obviously, King Charles III didn’t wear a gown at his coronation, but his outfit did have a similar feel.
