The Coronation of King Charles III and A Look Back At Coronation History

In a splendid display of regal grandeur, the majestic ceremony unfolded within the hallowed halls of Westminster Abbey. Marking an illustrious moment in history, King Charles III assumed his rightful place as the 40th distinguished monarch to be anointed in this venerable cathedral since 1066.

Today, we take a look back at coronation regalia and pantry throughout history. At the heart of this hallowed ceremony lies a collection of revered treasures, lovingly referred to as the coronation regalia, each holding a profound significance. These sacred artifacts form an extraordinary collection of the Sovereign’s Orb, Sovereign’s Scepter, Coronation Spoon, St. Edward’s Crown, and Imperial State Crown.

All weave together the grandeur of the past and the promise of the future, with some of these illustrious items tracing their origins back nearly a millennium. While much of the ceremony has remained unchanged for generations, with each coronation provides an opportunity for each monarch add their own signifiers giving way for iconic moments. Let’s take a peek at coronation moments throughout history!

Holly Holden’s Equestrian Collection

If Saturday was not enough pomp and circumstance, the 149th annual Kentucky Derby took place at the storied Churchill Downs with Mage taking the crown. From the dazzling finery, refreshing mint juleps, exquisite hats, and race enthusiasts singing the beloved anthem ‘My Old Kentucky Home,’ the derby transcends tradition. Remarkably, this equestrian spectacle holds the distinction of being the longest-running sporting event in the United States, dating back to 1875.

A grand celebration of southern culture, the spectacular event is an iconic symbol of Americana that has The Glam Pad inspired to embrace equestrian style. Holly Holden, a long-time TGP favorite, has just the collection to capture our fascination.

The Equestrian Collection, a magnificent ensemble of five opulent porcelain pieces crafted to embody the very essence of elegance and daring contemporary panache. In unparalleled Holden style, this exquisite collection caters to the discerning taste of every devoted Equestrian Aficionado. The full collection is available here!
