The Congregation In Westminster Abbey
We already discussed the massive difference in attendance at Queen Elizabeth II’s and King Charles III’s coronations, but when you view these photos side-by-side, you can’t even really tell! These photos show the congregation in Westminster Abbey during the coronations in 1953 and 2023. During Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation, more seating was built into the Abbey to accommodate her vast guest list. No extra seating was required for King Charles III’s coronation!
