On the day before his coronation Charles II took part in a magnificent procession from the Tower of London to the Palace of Westminster, allowing people to see and applaud their new king. Charles cut an imposing figure, at least six feet tall and resplendent in a plumed hat and embroidered suit. In this commemorative print, the king appears twice, once in the foreground astride his horse and again in the background as the procession passed in front of St Paul's Cathedral. Cat. 21
