George III's Procession to the Houses of Parliament©

Ceremonial and pageantry are, for many people, synonymous with the Royal Family. Landmark royal events, such as coronations and jubilees, and important constitutional occasions, like the State Opening of Parliament, are all marked by formal procedures, which, in most cases, have been developed and fashioned over centuries.
