Royal Show

George Tupou V, King of Tonga. Ever think that spats could be appealing again? This is your movement's new frontman! 

See the photographs from his coronation; classical statesman style in action

Princes Charles and William, accompanied by their wives, present for last night's festivities in black tie. And whilst Charles is always the leader, particularly in this milieu, such a potentially enduring image of a famous father and son pairing is all that really matters here

Finally, I'm able to post a comment, albeit a week later.

Barima, I watched most of this ceremony and the build up. What I enjoyed most were the hymns. The voices were sweet too. Anytime I watch anything English royalty related, the hymn singing always gets to me because it takes me back to my primary school days at a convent. We sang hymn there too. I can't get over how everything was so organised. Adherence to dress code, protocol, decorum, etc. I just appreciated it all.

Protocol and decorum are some of the traits that make the Royal Family what it is. I don't think there was ever any doubt that the big day would go off without a hitch, the outfits of the Beckhams aside
